    Is the track generally dry today, or have they been getting rain and it's muddy and trecherous?

    The limited footage I've seen indicates it's wet. But I'm not 100% certain. This time of year can be very wet fwiw.

    Yes, exactly. I had guessed that it was to save space.

    • 12:30 : Bikes: broken wrist for Faria
      The sixth stage is definitely not smiling on the leaders of the bike category. Following the technical problems suffered by Joan Barreda (Honda), now the progress of Ruben Faria’s (Husqvarna) has ground to a halt. The Portuguese rider fell and has fractured his wrist. Whilst Barreda was able to resume the race after a long wait, the same cannot be said for the unfortunate Faria, who is forced to withdraw due to his injury.

    Not sure before, but now it´s proven - Toby is 100% alien :)
    CP3-CP4 two minutes faster then Goncalves plus another 20s up. Alien task...

    @misha What seems to be happening is that those values copy over until the rider actually comes through, at which point the wrong value is replaced by the right one. It's eight riders; I can't see why those particular ones are getting the times copied and not the others.And Juan Pedrero was showing an earlier time at WP11 than at WP10.

    You never know how a fall is going to turn up, do you?
    I wonder if the pros practice falling and tumbling.
