    He and the kid are now 10 sec apart in real time, maybe Creed broke it....:rofl I guess the debate and appeal of the hour penalty doesn't matter much any more. He dropped an hour and a half for some reason. Unfortunately Creed lost a half hour in the same segment, presumably stopped to help.

    Peterhansel is amazing- he was an alien on bikes and now he's an alien in cars. Most impressive indeed.

    Along with Maciej.
    Good to see Jurgen doing so well and Jasper too, those pair will keep each other chuckling along all the way through the event, great attitude.

    I find it hard to believe that Joan Barreda Returns to have problems with the bike in uyuni.
    Casale is out with a fracture.
    Hold on to the chileans still in the race!

    Unfortunately ‪#‎Dakar2016‬ is over for me and I won't be starting Stage 6 today. I'm hugely disappointed but in circumstances like this, you must use your head and not your heart: Safety comes first.
    Thank you all for your ongoing support and belief in us!! Alex, as always, is the most incredible co-driver anyone could wish for, and we have both been fighting to keep the ‪#‎Zebrabuggy‬ going for as long as possible! Now, there's only next time and we already look forward to taking on this adventure in 2017!

    Has anyone else thought that RG picked Creed not only for the PR of having such a young pilot, but also because if he brought on a more seasoned one there is a chance they might go rogue chasing the top 10? RG found a pilot who will faithfully support him and because he has a lot to learn he won’t bite the hand that feeds him. Just a thought.

    Pierer has heavy shares in all the companies that KTM outsources too including Pankl :) I agree with your points (Y)

    And they all went away for the same reason as Rodrigues. It's the team. Rodrigues had is his own setup inside the team because of the differences between them all. So the word goes at least. :)

    You mean like Nasser did?

    Creed has cubic mega bucks and has beaten Rubby multiple times in Rubby's own SST series. Rubby likes him, but Rubby does not hand feed anyone. If you wanna play with Rubby, you better get out your check book.

    That was Matty Fish's Job though. And he wasn't the only person to break his bars on that stage. Another Italian guy did. I think it was probably the cold.

    Are the neutralization periods subtracted out of the times posted on the tracker?
