    It's because of the neutralisation, they first get a crazy fast time, and few minutes later it gets corrected.

    Better than nothing I guess :D

    You can there is a speed control zone in Atocha. It looks like they are taking the road towards Uyuni, which means they will have 20km of very twisty road, buts its quite wide.

    I thought they would ride in the riverbed but it seems not to be the case....for now. They will probably have a bit that cuts down into the riverbed, because it just asks to be ridden.

    14:11 Bikes: Km 170: Barreda in front of Coma?
    Joan Barreda, still absent from the tracking system, appears to continue ahead of Marc Coma, who is 1'22' ahead of Cyril Despres, 2'27' ahead of Kuba Przygoński‎, and 4'44' ahead of Hélder Rodrigues. Juan Pedredo García clings on to his top 5 spot.
    13:04 Bikes: Finish 1: Barreda flexes his muscles
    Spain's Joan Barreda Bort (Honda) has dominated the first part of the special, beating Marc Coma by 4'27' and Juan Pedrero García by 4'51'. Cyril Despres sits in fourth, 5'48' back. Alain Duclos has lost time in spades and is now 16'21' behind the leader.

    Got that one now Flood - I was still seeing 13.04 :eek1 :thumb

    Dakar.com:
    Robby Gordon's Hummer has remained stationary at km 281 of the cars' special for twenty minutes now. The reason for this is not known yet.
