    He doesn't have a bright white bandana and sucking down a Red Bull during interviews. Admittedly he is a flat biller but it doesn't even look like a fresh hat.

    Think the F5ADVASO needs to change the rules next year and make the use of "gate" an automatic DQ.

    David Casteu

    [​IMG]


    David is ranked 35th of the 7th stage of the Dakar disputed between Uyuni (Bolivia) and Salta (Argentina) at 13'42 '' behind the winner Antoine Meo (KTM). It appears in 21st place overall, 1 h 01'53 '' leader Paulo Goncalves (Honda).

    "I left this morning on a good pace, but my bike was not working well. I do not know if it was from the altitude. I found a gasoline pump fault, my bike was 70%. I stopped, I tinkered on the track, I got back on the rear pump. But drivers have passed and I found myself in the dust. "

    Then racing motorcycles was stopped before the passage of a river swollen by a big storm. Twenty-two drivers were able to cross the river before it is too big, but David and the rest of the pack, could not pass. "It was me who made the decision to stop the race, says David. We could not go in the river. A Polish driver wanted to move, but his motorcycle was left completely under water. With Verhoeven, we tried to cross but it was impossible. I then went back initially to warn others and we could then regain arrival in convoy ... The rest day will be well deserved! Laurence and Charles arrive tomorrow (Sunday) in Salta manager for me all week. The mechanics, themselves, will arrive around 3 am after making 1200 km on mountain roads at 4600 m! ".

    The three riders of Team Casteu are still in the race

    Harite Gabari ranked 79th in the stage at 45'20 '' behind the winner. It appears in 80th place overall at 7 h 06'26 '' behind the leader.
    Thursday night at the finish of the sixth stage, Harite sent a message: "It was a very dangerous step, fast, long and played in altitude. I rode well, I kept the pace from beginning to end, I still suffer, but I grit my teeth! "

    Laurent Lazard ranked 74th in the stage at 42'09 '' behind the winner. It appears in 70th place overall to 5 h 44'25 '' behind the leader.
    "Even a complicated day. It had been three days since I had altitude sickness and therefore I was not well. I preferred to make thinking about the second week I'll attack at 100%. I assured so as not to hurt me and not dip into my physical, because I had trouble concentrating. I regret because the Bolivian people, the landscapes were really beautiful. It is a pity that the altitude has made us so badly. "

    Thanks Bill! I've only ridden a couple days of road books but even with that very small pool it was enough to see very different styles in what to mark and what not to mark. But man.... given the pace possible on that road, you'd think that one may have been marked....

    I do not believe that, that they have two or more sets of elevation. All those printed press and .... on paper should be wrong to.

    Very sloppy, as you said.
