    Yes!

    And that means he looks to be comfortably back inside the top thirty overall again (having slipped to 32nd yesterday) - 26th!!!

    Go Ian! Go #106!!!

    Hola! Hoy he tenido problemas de agua en el radiador y temperatura durante más de 100 km. Tenía que ir parando a poner agua y no podía correr. Me da mucha rabia porque había mucha navegación y arena, muchos se han perdido pero yo iba bien y era un día para hacer de los 10 primeros y ponerme 11 o 12 en la general, pero no ha podido ser. Sólo queda mirar hacia delante y seguir luchando.

    Hi! Today I had water problems in the radiator and engine tº during more than 100km. I had to keep stopping to put water & couldn’t go fast. It makes me angry cause there was a lot of navigation and sand. Many riders were lost but I was doing well. I think I could have make top10 and take the 11th or 12th position in the overall ranking, but it wasn’t possible. I can only look forward and keep fighting.

    Hola! Avui he tingut problemes d'aigua al radiador i temperatura durant més de 100 km. M'havia d'anar parant a posar aigua i no podia córrer. Em fa molta ràbia perquè hi havia molta navegació i sorra, molts s'han perdut però jo anava bé i era un dia per fer dels 10 primers i posar-me 11ª o 12ª a la general, però no ha pogut ser. Només queda mirar cap endavant i seguir lluitant.

    Also means he will be starting with some faster company tomorrow, which will be great experience for him!

    If this was true, then Sylvain would have a one week penalty by now for changing piston every night in his 2-stroke engine ;-)
