    Svitko today very good ride - now on both WP8 and WP9 5th. place
    Even Ondrej Klymciw is going OK around 26th. today. His injured leg hurts.

    Meanwhile, on the other end of things, it looks like these two have yet to make WP4.

    With over a 3 minute lead in the stage even if Speedy catches up tomorrow Toby's still time ahead so long as he stays on his tail. Right?

    Don't know if there is an extra penalty other than your stage time started when you should have checked in. There would not be a penalty if you got there early as long as the gps doesn't read a speeding infraction. They want to keep the rally moving but not make it a significant factor so there is ample time. Don't think its much different than fuel neutralizations. If not ready or paying attention after the 15 minutes, the clock keeps ticking wether you leave or not.

    Paulo had a fall apparently, big crash according to his word, probably why he lost a bit of time... but he was pretty happy with his day

    I'm wondering that too. Does ASO provide premix at fuel stops? I know he carries oil in his swingarm, but getting at that would be relatively slow.

    It's Paulo not Paolo. ( I don't mean to be rude don't get me wrong).

    Great fight between Price and Speedy. Haven't seen such a fight in recent years!

    Winter time/; so that would be the opposite of the 37 c today & 39c we're expecting today & tomorrow I guess. Seeing as Troy's from Orange he wouldn't understand what I'm talking about:lol3

    @misc, another request... lock the column headers somehow? so scrolling down the list can still see the WP headers.

    Sainz has been far from the limelight, there or thereabouts; but it looks like he might have the overall lead going into tomorrow. Hasn't really been a big tip for the win, but who knows?

    I think the back markers are in for a very long day, and maybe night too.


    I asked the same a while back but I don't think we know yet.

    • 15:04 : Bikes: Price wins and takes the rally lead
      Toby Price (KTM) has won the 8th stage between Salta and Belen. Totally in his element throughout the day, the Australian has landed a sledgehammer blow in distancing Paulo Gonçalves (Honda), this morning’s rally leader, by 5’17’’. As a result, the KTM rider takes command of the general standings with a lead of 2’05’’ over the Portuguese rider Honda rider.
