    @dentvet, you asked for it!!!!


    There is also this question: when they go over the road in neutralization section, they arrive in next section, when they pass a shield, can they go back in the neutralization section.
    How does this shield look like and what does it mean?
    Is it allowed to ride back?

    When you see the camera moving to the left. 02:02, you see the DSSb and shields.

    Hello All,

    Can anyone provide info on where to find the list of Malle Moto finishers?

    I know that Lyndon took 2nd place and but when I tried to find other results I couldn't find much information on Malle Moto at all.
    Almost nothing on the dakar.com site.

    It must be somewhere!?!

    TIA,
    Brian

    tracking dakar is not reliable enough, they make their own list of riders.

    After all stage screwed up the list by th A.S.O.
    at the end the straighten the list stage 12.

    look at column M

    Yes - privateer KTM riders (on 450 Rally's) were able to get spare parts from the KTM support truck - but they have to apply/register in advance for the service and a sizable fee is payable whether or not you actually take advantage of the service during the event.
