    That big moment of discovery will be where they ride in a riverbed that goes through a solid wall of rock. Its an amazing place. Its a dead end for normal traffic so they must have some off pist up some ridges after that!!

    Pain changed his engine a lot earlier, maybe before the marathon stage. Will check the overalls from the earlier stages for that.

    edit: changed engine after marathon stage 4...

    We were thinking that now that Paulo and Sam are out, Laia would get an unofficial promotion...

    if I'm correct, Laias teammate is out already, so she should have a full team behind her and for sure some more support from HRC aswell ... looks promising!

    Orly Terranova was penalized 15 minutes for accidentally ramming the Colombian rider Juan Sebastián Toro. With this change, Terranova fell to 4th place in the overall standings in Cars.
