Tim CoronelVerified account@TimCoronel
Looks like a real big penalty for Peterhansel Reason should be illegal refeuling

He never left
SEBASTIAN CAVALLERO (PER)
Scott Bright How did he finish today
so we still have 019, 153 and 142 out there if I see that right.
Scott Bright 73rd for the day. He started off strong running in the low 60's then fell off a little bit toward the end of the special.
I'm curious how his wrists are holding out. I'd guess he's riding conservatively to finish.
I wonder what currency he accepts? Euros or Qatari riyal? ;-)
Gordon has made it in +4:10:03
Creed still hasn't made WP6
Waitress: And where are you positioned in the race currently young man ??
Aiming for zero mistakes
For his first Dakar, Alexander Smith has set himself the goal of reaching the finish without making the slightest mistake. For the moment, the American rider is living up to the challenge.
As incredible as it may seem, Alexander Smith has completed the first six thousand kilometres of the rally without making one single mistake, which is not bad at all for a debutant. “It's the goal I set for myself,” explains the Husqvarna rider, son of American motorsport legend Malcolm Smith. “I want to get to the end of this Dakar without falling once”. If only some could say the same, such as Chilean Chilien Patricio Cabrera who fractured his wrist on the approach to Belén. “I stopped twenty kilometres from the finishing line to help him,” explains Alexander. “I set off the alarm on his Iritrack, and three minutes later a helicopter landed to assist him. I found it impressive and reassuring, because it's the type of accident that can happen to anybody. The Dakar really is an out-of-the-ordinary race”. The American rider, occupying forty-fifth place in the general standings in the bike category on the evening of the stage between Salta and Belén, has come to the rally this year to learn. “I found the first week of the race less difficult than I expected,” he confesses. “But then I feel the second will be more complicated and I was able to get a taste of it today, with the navigation and the sand. But hey, that's why I came along for the ride. I can't wait to get the dunes around Fiambala. I've heard so much about them”.
Guessing Sheldon didn't leave WP5 and is done?
So that piece on Motorsport is implying Peterhansel took fuel at a moto/ quad fueling station that wasn't for cars?
The Peugeots are diesel though?
Maybe he stopped for pee and a snack at a fuel station during the neutralised section and topped off or something?
It does beg the question. If Peugeot thought it was OK, surely it wasn't just Peterhansel that topped up..
