    Tomorrow will be interesting!

    Helder caught up to Despres by CP2 did that prevent him to do like the rest of the bunch to lose a bunch of time to Coma. Probably not but I think it definitely helped. Now the interesting part is that if as it was posted earlier the end was flat out opened, he was able to pass Despres and open a small gap on him, I know only 20 sec but still... Should we assume that Honda is a faster bike than the KTM?

    Troy,

    I meant that they will enter the Erg West to East (opposite what they did today but at the same latitude - Merzouga) and then they will have to cross it South to North (and I agree that it probably will be over the big dunes in the middle by way of some WPM). Once outside the Erg (at its Northern tip) the track back to Erfoud looks the same they did today (again in the opposite way).

    I would assume that CdP knows that a blown engine twenty clicks from the end of the first 270 km stage of what is a week long rally leaves you S.O.L.

    While the lure of giving your newly acquired factory team ride it's very first maiden voyage rally stage victory is a fairly good incentive to twist the grip for HRCHelder... :norton

    BTW, are there any engine changing penalties at the Oilybia Maroc?

    Yes, that is true... the majority of the tracks used for tomorrows stage are reverse of those ridden today... although a slightly shorter total course.

    For me it will be interesting to see what they have planned for them in the (little) desert sandpit. :evil

    Alan Duclos (Sherco) is 8th. Quite surprising, isn't it ?

    In the event regulations under Art 9.3.

    It states that one spare engine is approved for marking at technical verification.

    And if used the exchange of the engine must be brought to attention of the Race Direction at least one hour prior to the start of next leg.

    For exchange of motor there is to be a time penalty of up to 15 minutes.

    The use of a motorcycle that does not posses the approved markings/race number on the components (engine/gearbox/frame) will lead to exclusion.

    Thanks Troy.

    Hello Tomaz. Yes, it's a good start, considering all the teams enlisted. Let's hope the Sherco keeps holding on.

    Campbell arrived. In 16th, 32:38 behind Rodrigues.

    If one was to start speculating from the results of this single stage... that's a long time to wait for your water carrier in the event of a mechanical.

    Pedrero-Garcia was 15 min behind Coma. I still haven't found out why Ruben Faria isn't racing this one.

    Pizzolito and Campbell (HRC but with "production CRF") rode together, once Javier catched Jimmy.

    F5 average speed is 50 posts per hour already.
    I barely caught up.

    So is there anyone over there taking pictures? It's going to be a dry week without visual coverage. :1drink

    Tell me, what other outfit on the web - but the f5 crew - could come up with a terminology that includes "ASS local time" and "See pee four to ASS split" as part of it's vernacular... and think nothing of it...?! :rofl:jack


    The NPO homepage has a side with photo's updates...

    http://rallyemaroc.npo.fr/posi/?lang=en

    and there are a number of the usual suspects putting stuff up on facebook (manuel, Team HRC, speedbrain etc.).
