    I doubt he missed the CP - last year he backtracked and lost nearly 10min on one section to make sure he didn't miss a WP... but stranger things have happened no doubt.

    Or maybe thats just glass half full one eyed aussie thinking!?

    CP4

    After 396 km (CP4), general standings leader Toby Price (KTM) is strengthening his position as the stage's quickest man. With less than 40 kilometres before the finishing line, the Australian has been credited with the best time ahead of Antoine Meo (KTM). More importantly, KTMs leading rider has opened up the gap on his closest rival, distancing Stefan Svitko by more than 10 minutes.

    He lost time to some of the top runners... He only gained big on Benavides because he got lost

    at WP7 where he disappeared, he had 46sec on pablo and 4min on Meo, at CP4/WP9 he had 1:10 and 1:30 on Meo and Pablo. Seems pretty legit - based on that I'd guess they're are all racing the same track.


    They should finish up and we will all get put in the loop shortly.

    But the question is "what's happened to Corky?"

    Gone AWOL on the liaison section? Tracker FUBAR?

    As well as the other five riders who don't appear to have started at the DSS????

    Nani Roma didn't show up all day and suddenly he is there at CP1 (on Live Monitor only) with no WP times.
