    Quint and Svit were behind Walkner on the piste and they both just turned in slow times to WP2.

    They have a neutralization at the start of their SS, the bikes have one near the end.

    1. 07:21 Karyakin out!
      Sergey Karyakin fell at km 44 and broke his arm. The Dakar is probably over for the defending champion, the only man who has been able to push Ignacio Casale hard since the start of the rally!

    Hi There
    If the one leading goes bananas, they all follow.
    Of course road book, blablabla, not good blablabla.
    That's the difference this dakar. They cannot follow. 30 minutes gap is not definitive.

    Such a ride has to have a cost, I wonder what the cost will be? Will he make wp4?

    Yamaha are still tied at the hip as is Honda aside from space cadet.

    I see the trackers gone dodo again...

    Still no Walkner At WP2. If he's got a tracker issue he'll show a time at WP3 since it's also a CP. They should be rolling up there shortly.

    Edit: and there he is :clap

    About the bubble graph, I gathered a few printscreens from previous years tutorial:

    WARNING: Sorry to pop up mid Stage with this info, I 'm posting when I can :D, Screen grabs ARE NOT LIVE, they are from previous Dakar as an example. Don't go over excited as Price is not leading :D

    A) Go to the excellent Website www.trackingdakar.nl

    B) Select Waypoints

    [​IMG]

    C) Select the Waypoint at which you wish to check the Rider's position on the ground

    [​IMG]

    D) Click the Name of the rider whose position on the ground you wish to check:

    [​IMG]

    E) Tchan! Analise and conjecture strategies until you blow your brains out:

    [​IMG]

    F) Debit your precious conclusions to the F5rehose, "HRC is sleeping", "Toby the Messias will get them all, single legged and eating pies", "If only 'famous Baja racer' could gather 20 M$", "Portuguese do it better on a thenth of the budget", "JBB will blow it", ..., the usual :D...

    E) Don't forget to DONATE:
