For bikes and quads at least
That's a very liberal answer coming from you.
Moving from 80 to 82...about 1 minute difference in the time that you start? Not gonna make it more dangerous, nah
On the older version, they would definitely suck up water hitting it at the speed she did in that photo. Then again I think many would looking at the amount of water going into that airbox area.. Thanks for the photo, it explained a lot. Amazing that she only lost two minutes under the circumstances...
For the organization and the survival of the image of the Dakar, its vital. Really sad what happened yesterday, but its racing. You cannot expect people to drive slowly in a race and the spectators are warned. To be fair in the case of the accident this time it seemed the spectators were quite far back from the track, but when a car is out of control there is not much that can be done about where it ends up. What could be done to prevent this type of thing from happening again? Push the spectators even further back? Stop racing altogether? I think both would be total overkill, but still there will be people that say this is what should happen. I suppose eventually the PC brigade will catch up with us and stop it all eventually.
Yes we all noticed. I think speechless is the word that comes to mind. Well done Scott and THANK YOU!!! I really hope you will do a few of the stages later on in the rally, although I know how much time and research this takes; pouring over GE cross referencing information from multiple sources etc.
Love it. Got to be careful though, the Mericuns are quite sensitive about their pilots.
I'm with you. Especially when its wet and miserable.
Don't remember off hand but its about 1.5 cancelled on average these last few years. Many more have been shortened (in terms of racing section lengths), Up to about 4...but I stand to be corrected.
They were live broadcasting here about stage cancellation: http://tn.com.ar/
"Okay fella's... that's a wrap I s'pose... ???
... the moustached man said we can put the gumboots and spares away for today..."
STAGE 1 CANCELLED FOR SECURITY REASONS / ETAPA 1 CANCELADA POR RAZONES DE SEGURIDAD
Official Dakar account just announced.
Update in French
Les conditions climatiques évoluent très légèrement sur la zone de la spéciale mais pour l'heure, pas assez favorablement pour lancer le départ du secteur chronométré en dépit de l'arret des précipitations.
Les concurrents continuent d'arriver au point de rassemblement qui a été organisé au niveau de la zone de ravitaillement des motos et quads.
Ce matin, l'ensemble des concurrents de cette dernière catégorie a pris le départ en direction de Villa Carlos Paz. Soit 136 motos et 45 quads.
Du coté des voitures, seul le concurrent 360, impliqué dans l'accident d'hier, n'est pas encore parti. Il y a donc actuellement 110 voitures engagées sur le premier parcours de liaison.
Bad Google translation
Climatic conditions are changing very slightly on the special zone but for now, not enough favorably to launch the start of the timed sector despite the rainfall stop.
The competitors continue to arrive at the assembly point was organized at the feeding zone motorcycles and quads.
This morning all the competitors in the latter category took the departure to Villa Carlos Paz. Either 136 motorcycles and 45 quads.
The side of cars, only the competitor 360, involved in the accident yesterday, is not gone yet. There is therefore currently 110 cars entered the first connecting section.
09:57 : Still waiting…

Special 1 cancelled by flood. So you would find CP1 where is thought to begin. Link to the bivouac. #dakar2016
Hit the link: nose-goggle thingies.
There's a video.
I wouldn't mind trying it, but the price is very wrong.
And Africa ;o)
True - but those are circuit races, not spread out over 200+kms as they would be on today's stage... there are also infinitely more variables (and trees to hit) on a rally stage.
It's a bummer the stage is cancelled for those of us spectating, but I don't think any of the competitors will mind missing out on riding through that sort of crap... remember last year:
Llewelyn Pavey i guess
Good point, Jenny.
That's the same area of the last year's mud fest.
Stage 2 - BB still leading - Everyone else on exactly the same time .
