To get to full screen...

Once you've clicked on an individual and his screen comes up, click on the blue Westcoast Stage 1 bit.

It then comes up with the whole field, the fullscreen function then works

I think Brian came in before Roger but he made a navigation mistake a few k's from the end so he'll get penalised. If Roger didn't make any mistakes I'd say he's won the stage.

Ardi's bike killed itself on the Prolog, suspected bigend. Mikes bike wouldn't start yesterday for the prolog, fuel issues. Started today, but 8k's in died again. They will try fix it this evening and ride tomorrow.

That's rally, the roaring crowds of adoring fans at the finish... not.

Faff had a fall 200k in. Sore back.



Peter had a fall at a triple caution.





Niklaus, most of that bikes bits have been fabricated by him. He's not slow either.



Many have finished, still quite a few out there.

By my reckoning that looks like Gavin Morton won it - or where did Eben start? Of course they'll have to open tomorrow.

sorry to hear
Rally 101
rather take a shortcut or cut and run and take the penalties.
as long as you are in the bivouac in time to get some decent rest and organizers do not have any hassles getting you back to camp, they will most probably  allow you to race the next day again.

Trust you to find the "cut and run" Eddie  :lol8:

Very unfortunate that she didn't make the cut.  We saw her coming past us some 15km Alexander Bay and was wondering what had happened.  The marshal told us that she apparently stopped a few times, takes small breaks and simply got caught out by the time :-\

There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep Sea, and music in its roar:
I love not Man the less, but Nature more"
