Lots of action - Pablo Q after taking time off Sam has now got properly lost and thrown it! Looks like we may have a new overall leader today yet ...

Sorry BD, where do you see that PQ got lost? I don't see him yet on WP2.

I meant live feed - I see that their live timing is not working. Yet somebody is getting info from Dakar.fr or some such.

This is proving to be a difficult stage for the second placed rider in the general standings: Pablo Quintanilla has a technical problem with his bike and has been at a standstill trying to repair as the minutes tick by.

Damn right - Go Ondrej!!!

On the more sombre note - there are rumours that the Russian chick so beloved here (I'm Czech, so naturally you cannot expect the same attitude from me) didn't start the special for some reason.
