He might head off to do another lap?
They will go back through those carefully, to see that the actual arrivals and data entry times are correct... in a rugby scrum finish like that, it is easy for some mix ups to occur.
And then there's Jacobus Potgieter hopelessly lost between CP1 and 2:
Most of the front runners heading up the liaison to the bivouac, Cyril a bit further behind, may have stopped to film his daily "video de l'amitié"
At least he's not alone. Nicholas Chiche is with him:
"Allo allo... e nice day in ze desert again at le Rallye Maroc'...
todaay it was good...
I ride from behind, navigate a good way...
and show ze' f$ckers ou ees boss again...no...?!"
What a cluster f#$£
and I thought I knew what was happening when I left for work...
Back to the days of the "land rush" en masse starts...
Hehe indeed I scanned quickly for order and didnt see the mess that the times were. Good thing I didn't tweet any finish reports hehe
Now JC's time card is screwing up the posis..
EDIT: fixed, in 17th, +37 minutes.
So the overall looks something like this after today:
1 Cyril Despres KTM 13:11:54
2 Joan Barreda Husqvarna 00:17:59
3 Frans Verhoeven Yamaha 00:30:44
4 Olivier Pain Yamaha 00:32:13
5 Felipe Zanol Honda 00:33:21
6 Chaleco López KTM 00:36:04
7 Sam Sunderland Honda 00:47:21
8 Paulo Gonçalves Husqvarna 00:47:43
9 Kuba Przygonski KTM 00:48:12
10 Mattew Fish Husqvarna 00:53:39
11 Joan Pedrero KTM 00:54:48
12 Alessandro Botturi KTM 01:11:13
For the record, Barreda made up around 3 minutes (he lost more when he backtracked in the dunes) by following the hard charges towards the end of the stage.
They better scramble a chopper for those two... they keep heading north away from the track :eek1
Yes, it's painful to watch them.
There's also Lunot, who missed the whole Erg and almost made it to CP2...the wrong way.
Just got in, 15/16 pages for a standard rally stage - not bad, but must improve by January
Top 5 today started 20, 11, 10, 12 & 9th - such a big reversal must point to something, difficult navigation? - Troy?
Marc Coma reflects:
"It was a shame because we were doing a good job. The shoulder does not hurt too much, I have stabilized. Yesterday at the hospital put me shoulder Errachidia in place and now we have to wait for the tests I made ​​in Barcelona.
The fall was important, he had a problem with the trip, and did not work well. He was on an off-track with grass-camel, an area somewhat bumpy and twisty. Cyril saw before and decided to try to squeeze a little trap and sail it. After a few curves, crossed a wadi and when they sped, I should find grass-camel and went for ears.
As I said, the drop was significant. I saw immediately that I had hurt. At first there seemed to fractures, but fortunately it seems radiographs indicate that dislocation, so that we can be optimistic that there is nothing broken.
This afternoon we arrived in Barcelona and go straight to the Dexeus Clinic. They spend MRI to see exactly the extent of the injury. I can not say much more. We'll see who can do the tests and the results given to evaluate recovery times. Thank you for caring for my state. "
I'm amazed at some of the bikes that are WAY off course....wondering whats going threw their heads..
"Well this is just fucking embarassing, I have no furking clue where I am anymore &%^$#$%^^"
Careful you don't slip from frenchy into mexican!!
Have to have a giggle when you see his team name "Nomad" racing - he is certainly living up to his name
