    Shortly after the 338 km mark, Italian Alessandro Botturi's systems have sent out a signal stating he is immobile in the first area of dunes on the Dakar 2014. Slightly too far north in relation to all the other competitors, he may have become the first victim of the grey sands of Nihuil.

    Nearing the end of SS2, the trackers are still off. Official reports and Radio Maray suggest that many riders have problems in the dune section near the finish, among them Grabham, Pizzolito, Botturi and even Coma.

    Edit: wait, there's more!

    "Used to mishaps, French biker Frédéric Millet has broken down, shortly after the 86 km point of the bike special. He does not think he will be able to repair and is very pessimistic about continuing the rally."
