An 8th is half nut I think

The Dakar pilots are brought in from all corners of the globe, including Australia. As "Pantah" will attest - much of the flying at the Dakar is done in the "Deadman" part of the "Dead man's curve", otherwise known as the "Height-Velocity Diagram". I'm not sure what their insurance premiums are, but Dakar helicopters get trashed regularly - one each in 2009 & 2011 years that I was crewing in the event.
The Argentinian Army pilots are a bit nuts, they loved dragging their skids ( well almost ) over the top of the bivouac mess tents - highly illegal for a commercial pilot in Australia.
I always tell people that helicopters are the "dirt bikes of the skies" - and fixed wing aircraft are the Toyota Camry's of the sky.........
The starting positions for the cars make no sense, and are changing with every refresh.

This ^^^ from four pages back in the f5irehose
This ^^^from GONK's own facebbok page... also four pages ago...
@appliance57 seem's that you jumped on the hose too late to see the news... look up ^^
... currently Gonk is immobile... out... it seems... and looking for appliance57's left nut...
The first three riders to set off this morning have reached CP2 (after 243 km) and Toby Price has again demonstrated that he has the stature of bike category boss. At the mid-way point, he leads Kevin Benavides by 3'02 and Stefan Svitko by 6'09''.
I think Gonk's luck finally ran out...
Antoine Meo has reached CP2 (after 243 km) which is also a refuelling point for the bikes. At the mid-way point, the Frenchman, fourth in the general standings, lags 3'28'' behind Pablo Quintanilla, the day's second fastest rider. Given the 430 kilometre length of the special, all is not lost for the five times world enduro champion, as he still has time to reverse the trend.
*107 - GABOR SAGHMEISTER (SRB) KTM 450 RR*
Stage 10: Place 71, 6h56m15s +03:08:52
On track since yesterday with broken right hand:
Wow, looking at it by overall position, both Meo and Benavides must be thinking, "Just five minutes over Pablo and I can podium this race!" This will be great to track.
Well TP has impressed the heck out of me up until now. He should not be charging to win the stage It is an amateur thing to do (not alien thing to do)...he has a 23 minute lead. Preserving the bike and himself should take precedence over a stage win. I get that his normal speed is fast, but no way he is just cruising today...aside from Svitko (who IS showing signs of being an alien by not attacking..currently slipping back a couple of places each wp = SMART) Toby is keeping and gaining times on the the guys fighting for third.
If I was a betting man the management at KTM are going to give him a tongue lashing tonight
There's only one thing left for him to do.
This time next year he'll be a famous country and western singer.
Actually Toby is smart about this.
now he knows that his direct adversaries will not gain any time on him as long as they dont pass him.
Gonk is out.
He shouldn't care if they gain time on him...he has tons of time to spare
That sucks, he was definitely the person I wanted to see win this year. Dakar can a cruel mistress
