    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.

    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"

    :D

    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.

    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 :clap

    Top 5 today started 20, 11, 10, 12 & 9th - such a big reversal must point to something, difficult navigation? - Troy? :D

    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. "
