    also keep im mind that the weather has been not normal during the first week of therace. We have been suffering the warmest summer in more than 30 years. Argentina has been under the influence of a hot and dry air masse that has complicated things for normal citizens, so i guess riding in that conditions has been extremely demanding. that has contributed to the moto carnage we`ve seen in stages 3, 4 and 5.
    just my 0.002.

    I look through the roster of the remaining riders and realize that I don't have any favorites now. Anyone left has my undying respect. It's not that I had favorites that are out now, though I hated to see lots of them fall out, it's just that I'm so impressed with the rest that I don't want to single any one rider out(might jinx them).

    Well all caught up now so headed to the woods to hit about 40 miles of tight single track
    And I will be exhausted/worn out so I cannot fathom how these guys and gals do Dakar !!!

    I hope all make it today and I will be back on here in about 8 hours to see what has transpired

    Thanks for the great commentary and insight to all you who are so knowledgable on Dakar and the posts from those who have been there

    That's a special talent there-saving that rear. Even if someone else would be likely to give him one if he trashes it.
