    Looks like 888 has been idle for a while at this location near La Laguna and Hwy 1 intersection.

    Penalties are mainly on the transits. Speeding in the transit, or arriving well late at either the riders next stage or late to the finish of the stage they are on.

    Go to the site and click on results. Then hit the penaties tab and it'll explain every rider's penalty.

    His spot hasn't pinged in over a hour, I'm thinking it's gone goofy, bad area, needs a reset, something like that 2 other bikes are showing in front of him now

    Aaron's SPOT is on the move as well. I'm guessing he's hitching a ride to the days destination?

    #5 told me this morning's section was very fast and he couldn't keep up with the 950 on his 350. He also got lost but the main thing was top speed. Gilkey pulled another 10 minutes or so on both Smith and Holcomb. The section they are on now looks a little more technical...

    If no mistakes or technical issues, Gilkey should be looking good for tomorrow. He could stop for a shave and haircut. :lol3

    His wife posted on facebook last night that he put a hole in the clutch cover and lost all his oil. not sure how far he went before he discovered it. Hopefully it didn't trash his engine.

    I think the mountainous terrain is playing havoc with the spots, C.Vestal's spot went from hwy1 to the coast in one big jump, and some of the others on spotwalla are backing up

    Gilkey's spot just made a big jump, guess it found a satellite again, he should be in within the hour...just guessing
