    Yamaha's Helder, Botturi and Van Beveren, are running with Metzeler Karoo from this year.
    Xavier is running with Michelin.

    But a weird choice of weapon.
    Would assume it is the partner/sponsor for them.
    but that rear looks DOA. Just as one would expect from a Karoo.

    minutes!!!

    Stopped at less than 50 kilometres from the finishing line, before resuming the race, Antoine Meo has just crossed the finishing line 38 minutes behind the stage winner, a cruel disappointment for the KTM rider…

    fell!

    Towards the end of a faultless stage on which it was difficult to imagine the Frenchman taking the slightest risk whilst escorting his team leader Toby Price, Antoine Meo suffered a fall towards the end of the special. With an injured hand, the KTM rider had to finish the stage at a slow pace whilst gritting his teeth.

    Something going on with Helder, he is arguing with time control people. This is seen from distance, don't know for sure...
    Fox reporter waiting for a chance to ask him.

    Price attacked only one or two days but that's all it took. He "cruises" on this stage for six hours and still winds up second. Smashing ride almost drama-free. Lots of smirks between he and Coma on the podium soon.

    The issue seems to be a FZ that was wrong on the roadbook, according to KB.

    Helder saying there's no penalization, he was discusing other issues with the organization, didn't want to specify...
    He looked happy with his performance, no problems on the entire stage.
