    What's he saying here? He lost his Iphone and had to resort to a hand drawing on a napkin to navigate?

    is that happening today? No reason on a 11k/6.8mile stage. They'd barely see any dust on a thirty second interval.

    Look at the start times on the DSS of the prologue...

    2 minute start gaps for the last 15 priority seeded motos.

    I now think this 11km specie is nonsense.
    This isn't in the nature of the rally raid discipline and you can either risk a lot or lose a lot.
