I see Jan Sand (115) has not made a start this morning.  He came in late last night and I wonder if he's got bike problems.

Ek sit nou al die hele week so en kyk na wat aangaan.



En probeer arm pump opbou om te probeer deel wees van die race!

Some of the front runners made a nav error.  The cat is in the pigeon pen

My guess at the moment is that Willem du Toit and Hentie Hanekom's positions are relatively safe, depending if penalties will be incurred.

Koos van den Heever stands a chance to forfeit his third place to possibly Rudie van der Merwe or Peter How.

Way too early to tell though.

Spoke to the people on the ground... Jan's bashplate came loos and had a nasty fall.  Broke a couple of ribs.  He continued slowly but later the rear moose collapsed.   :'(  His is fine but it would seem his out of the race!  :'( :'( They're on the way to Upington now

Thanks _ah_.  I followed his progress and training from just before the Baja and he's put in a lot of effort for this.  He'll be very disappointed, but I'm sure he'll be back!

Just spoke to Bluebull. He's fine, but he's out.

"Concussed,  bike caught fire 🔥 put it out, lost all water rode 20 HP thru dunes, fuel problems fixed those too. Made it in. Medics & gill did not want me to start but convinced them otherwise provided i skipped the hard part.engine blew up 30km in"

Some strange tracks this morning. Looks like some made navigational errors
Would have been awesome to see the proposed route on tracking
