Any livestream for the party?
El Dakar, una meta profesional
Not to be alarmist, but Sylvain is kinda late getting to WP1?
Dakar breakfirst while we wait
Let's hope it's a tracker issue not a stroker-issue.
Does a back runner charge and attempt a stage win?
i saw him on dakar.com but not on misc... but now hes disappeared... (time was 50min )
Spyrograph, you get this wit opposite starting list
Helder and Kevin, only one second separates them. 4th place is up for grabs. Not nearly as significant as if it was third and a spot on the podium but should still be a race between these two today
Possibly - I think TP will ride 'safe' and go for a finish, others may be more focussed on the finishers medal rather than a position in the rankings - but the battle for the second/third spots on the podium will potentially get exciting !
The starting order of tody is a bit odd, it's not the reverso order of yesterdays stage nor is it the reverse order of GC.
Or is it just me who is confused?

If you were an artist, you could probably frame this and sell it for ££££'s !
TP isn't stuffing around !
Meo running pretty slow today. Knocked around after yesterday or just waiting for Toby?
Quads: a crowning achievement for all
Finishing the Dakar is a triumph in and of itself, but the closing day is also an opportunity for those 'languishing' at the bottom of the classification to bask in glory. Thanks to the reverse starting order, the last riders are actually the first to blast past the massive crowds thronging the tracks and roads of today's stage. It's Giuliano Horacio Giordana's turn to open the road on his Yamaha quad. The Argentinian is revelling in his status as 'race leader' until the leaders cruelly overtake him, compensating somewhat for a lacklustre edition. He was aiming for a top 5 spot after finishing 12th last year, but after two weeks of racing, Giuliano is returning to Rosario in 23rd place, over 42 hours behind the leader.
Motorcycles: a Dakar between them
The last rider in the motorcycle classification, Oswaldo Burga, is currently in the final 180 km special of his maiden Dakar. The Peruvian hasn't really had a hellish time in the race, and he is now sitting 84th and dead last in the classification, over 54 hours behind leader Toby Price. A gap of over 8 hours compared with the Australian's race time. In other words, Price could have completed two Dakars before Oswaldo finished one.

Sylvain still not in wp1
