    Maybe DAKAR should have a PINK jersey (it is close to red) Honda always seem to go for "stage glory" at the expense of the end result... I guess yellow is closer to orange on the colour wheel... isn't it? KTM have the most tour wins... they'll play the team game... let the "climbers" fight for the stage wins... it is a long haul for the next two weeks... :nod

    Yes - that's a potential key, but it depends on the track tomorrow and if he can pass, but if anyone can its him? :thumb

    With respect to Pedrero, he isn't the quickest out there based on the results over the years, so they fast guys are laying off the pace a little!?

    Problem is that almost the entire Honda team might be ahead of Toby on the piste tomorrow

    Not too sure if he wanted to finish that high up today, but as I've said, if overtaking is difficult tomorrow then it may not be that bad?
