Darryl appears to have lost quite a bit of time to Riaan. Looks like the speculation that he made a nav error was correct.

Mr Depres seems to be having should we say a quiet day. I guess just managing his lead, taking no risks?
The same can't be said for Sam Sutherland. He's having a flyer, as is Joan Barreda.

The leading bunch are all in now.
Mr Depres still has a healthy lead for tomorrow, with a few fast guys ahead of him. Smart tactics, I think.
Riaan has been moving up steadily today.
Darryl's not having such a great day?

I am getting excited about the Dakar, now that there are local guys racing again. I think both Riaan and Daryl will be much stronger this year with the experience and this preparation Rally under their belt.  :thumleft:

I do Agree that it will help, But how much is the question. The Dakar is in a league of its own. I think that Darryl will have a blast with his second Dakar, he knows what to expect!

The boys are riding well! I am happy Sam managed another Good Day today!

It will depend A LOT on how fit they are at the time and how focused they can stay through the three weeks. Alfi Cox always said you first mission it the get to the last week and then you can think about racing. Many/Most times the Dakar is won or lost in that last 5 days of racing. That is why the top ten is always there. They are not always the fasted byu they stay fast enough for every day of the Dakar. That is a big part of it. Well that is what I think looking at it from the outside.

From Sam Sutherland:
"Today was cloudy and much cooler. The bike is great and suspension is working really well."
But he missed a waypoint and has been penalised 30 minutes.

Absolutely. Quite a few of the guys have had gyppo guys big time from the food. Interesting that Cyril is eating from rat packs.

I'm so chuffed with Darryl and Riaans effort that have been very consistent. Darryl is really struggling with the navigation, I think he could be in the top ten if he can get this sorted out. I'm pretty sure he going to push hard in the Dakar this coming year, he wants to do well in it. At least the navigation is a little bit easier (not much!) in the Dakar.

Riaan is doing amazingly well for a virgin rally guy. Both these guys will be up there if they get more time on the ground.

Watching this rally makes me want to ride so badly! This has been a super exciting rally, and the closest finish in a long time.

BB i agree. A nice closely contested Rally is great for the sport. It gets rid of the some of the mud gate scandal. Every Team is Stepping it up. Husky`s with Cancalved and Barreda, Yamaha with Fretigne and Casteu, Honda now and as always the KTM lot!

It has been really exciting to watch from a computer and all one can hope is that they actually convince Redbull to televise the next events, I mean if they can show a chop jumping from a baloon in the Stratos phere surely a rally is an easy thing to do! Maybe some live cames at  the PC,s and start and finish?

This all said and done as a spectator,  like you I would rather be riding myself!

From http://www.broadlinkktmrally.co.za:

"The 2 riders started out well today (Friday) but as a result of the dust and a slight navigational error Darryl went over the bars and lost some time to his team mate. Riaan is doing well with navigation and along with his smooth riding style he managed a 12th in the penultimate day of the Rally.
Tomorrows day (Saturday) is a short stage of only 171 km of timed stretch and 206 km overall. Organisers say it is short but technically tricky and will take the riders back into the small dunes.
Riaan and Darryl are lying 14th and 15th respectively...... Good job guys!!"
