    We are close to the half way mark, so I think most riders have the "race anxiety speed" thing controlled by now; The reality is the altitude, and lack of concentration out there. Its a long special and you can go really fast on some of those sections they are riding today.

    Anyone will lapse concentration after so many days riding all day. Fatigue is kicking in. Now with the altitude exacerbating the problem its so easy to be lulled on a really nice gently curving, quite smooth in places track. Suddenly there is a dip or a wash 10 feet deep and its all over before the mind with dulled senses has reacted.

    I'm telling you the area around the salar when wet can be a bitch. Lots of deep sand and mud.

    Dakar.com suggests that Ceci helped Barreda and is waiting for assistance but that doesn't make sense since they both passed WP5. Barreda was not yet at WP5, if Ceci gave up parts, I would presume that Barreda would have continued on and then we'd see Ceci not clocking time. If they both clock WP6 a second apart, then that tells the story.

    And with Walkner at 24 secs those 3 are keeping great pace, but Toby more so as he's opening!

    I heard this more often. I didn't show it as extra column to save space. I thought it wasn't interesting, but I understand why it is, especially when you are waiting for someone and are not sure how long behind the leaders he started. I just activated the WPS column in the waypoints/live timing table. I already implimented it in the new layout, so could easily activate it. This is what you meant? http://trackingdakar.nl/waypoints.php

    Mischa,
    from where I've been watching today (I monitor the ASO live tracker and yours)... most of the "glitches seem to come from the dumps you get from the ASO matrix.

    You tool is as only as accurate as the data it is sent... as far as the layout and finesses that your tracker offers - waaaay superior to anything else on line I've seen... both the order by stage hours and the waypoint proximity "bubble" features - genius (now if only f5olk can learn to interpret them).

    This morning while the ASO WP's were not functioning, and I used the POSIS to check the time splits at CP1 - your "checkpoint" function still is far superior to the dakar.com live timing - due to the start pos. (#) at the head of the entry and the stage time at the CP. It allows a timekeeper (convert all times to seconds) and work out where the riders are in order.

    If I could only have one tool to follow the progress of a stage - your would be it. :clap:clap:clap

    Thank's for the powerhouse job mate, catch you when I am down your way next... in the spring! :thumb

    ladies and gentlemen, good f5olk of the f5...

    please tip your waiters, this kind of service is worth it. :nod

    This looks like it's going to be almost 6h special.
    That's probably two refueling stops, right?

    On the 2015 Stage Hours screen I'm seeing everyone's WP10 times copied in WP11, putting Toby in 8th place.

    • 12:23 : Bikes: Price unrelenting at CP4
      Toby Price (KTM) has ridden a sensational third section of the stage. He has just passed through CP4 with a lead of 19 seconds over Paulo Gonçalves (Honda) who was ahead of the Australian at the last intermediate point by almost 2 minutes. The final section of the stage will therefore be decisive. Caution will need to be exercised, however, because a zone of fesh-fesh awaits just after CP4 and could lead to further developments in the positions on the special.
