Anyone know what happened with Greg Raaf? He was riding so well but by the looks of it didn't finish?

I saw him taking a shortcut at the dam.  Depending on the issue he might use one of his 'Duck and dive' (or what it is called and still complete the rally.

I think the final results might change due to penalties as a few missed waypoints.

Just noticed again that this is a WOMSA event and not MSA.  Wonder how that would affect the entrants.  Are MSa members allowed to enter WOMSA event?

Sadly I heard from Martin Lourens this evening that Greg Raaff had a big off today as well and has injured his back & shoulder. He needed to go to hospital for treatment. Trusting he'll make a quick recovery  :-\

Martin finished the day in provisional 5th. He recons Lyndon is crazy fast and throws that 700 around like a 2stroke  :o

Damn and he was on the pace earlier. Speedy recovery I hope.

Yeah Lyndon is quick for sure, bloody impressive.

Little summary, lots of mud, pleased to say Ross Branch is ok after his crash but a bit banged up. Tomorrow’s the long day, 800km+

Over 1000 instructions on tomorrow’s roadbook which is 800km long, that’s an average of one instruction every 800 meters. It just took me 3.5hours to mark it all

800km roadbook is going to be a long day.

Could be a very interesting stage today if all the roadbook info is required for proper navigation.

Brian Bontekoning (#15) is racing with a broken hand (broke it in Lesotho previous weekend) - talking about old school tuff  ;)

Real pity about Giraffe (Greg Raaf for those who don't know) and just glad Ross was able to continue.  Wish one could tell Ross that he doesn't need to win this one and that he must rather focus on the roadbook (that means also not riding next to Lyndon) and his own navigation.

Interesting to note how many racers have been slapped with penalties, especially for speeding. 

I think this is going to be made more tuff by the busy roadbook and according to Garth he expects the front runners only to come in between 19h00 - 20h00 on Thursday - not for the fainthearted
“There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
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"

I see on SS1 today Ross Branch was faster than Lyndon by 32sec. And looking at their times they are right up there among the cars along with Roger Kane-Berman.

They must have been flying  :ricky:

How's the route on that web site work? Blue is obviously liaison but what's red, just the general direction of the route?

The red route is the SS route and I suspect is just a series of straight lines between certain roadbook points, maybe prominent changes in direction? I guess this is to give spectators an idea of the route without giving away too much detail.

Join the club haha. High time my ship comes in I think  :deal:

I guess they won't be able to do this with larger rallies like dakar to prevent teams using it to give riders live updates etc. Or maybe that is not really an issue? I love this tracking site as well, gives you a great idea of what's going on.
