Goncalves and Rodrigues have lost major time, and Mr Despres is making merry - big time! 
And I was so enjoying a Honda being in front.......

It could be a similar problem to what Joan Barreda had yesterday? Fingers Crossed!

I think Rodriguez is out. Same as Coma yesterday his speed is sitting at 0km/h and Barreda was stuck at 137km/h.

So something must of happened!

Maybe the terrain is today is taking it's toll.  The pics show what they are into today - Heavy on machinery in the dunes or what.  What do you say Kenesis & BlueBull, does the sand and dunes pose a bigger threat to the bikes endurance, than ordinary or other terrains?

Despres as usual always very good in the dunes.  Dont think anyone will catch him today.

Riaan and Darry through CP2. They are picking up places, so whether issue they had earlier appears resolved.

I wonder if they are having a boxing match to clock in?

Looks like just about everyone except Despres made a Nav error on that section.

Yip, that is exactly what has happened, including Darryl & Riaan and a buch of the other top 10 riders.  Despres had no such issues and his lines were perfect and so has made up a lot of time on the others.  Just goes to show, its not all about how fast you are in these races, but it has to be a combination of rider skill and navigational skill.

Olivier Pain also made no mistakes today and had a cracking ride. He should be moving up the overall standings after today.

Looks like today took its toll, with quite a few riders out.
Jabobus Potgieter surely has to be a South African, anybody know him?
