I have noticed how many Hiluxe's there are this year. Would they all be built in SA?

Is it a marathon stage for the cars aswell? Because that's going to suck for Alonso

According to this morning's Red Bull Dakar Daily they indicated that the one presenter will follow the riders and the other will remain with the bivouac.

So it sounds like it's a marathon stage for all then

11:51 Stage 10 between Haradh and Shubaytah interrupted
Due to the fact that the resources committed to ensure the safety of the competitors are virtually all entirely mobilised and with a deterioration in weather conditions (strong winds), the Race Directors have decided to halt the 10th stage between HARADH and SHUBAYTAH after 345 km (NEU OUT). The competitors from all the categories will thus travel to the marathon bivouac in link stage mode.

Bang bang must now just bump that Husky off second spot. I think Honda wants him to push so that they have more insurance at the top.

Know of them but there are many others. Wonder if they buy them or rent them like some people do with bikes?

Gazoo racing themselves are supporting 7 Hulixs this year. But I think they built quite a few more for customers

No, I want Pablo to win the Dakar, he's the sexiest by far, he deserves it! 8) My heart skipped a beat when he said he dedicates his stage win to Paulo Goncalves last night. He is the best!!! :love7: Realistically I know he can't win with Brabec and the other guys pushing. He has had so much bad luck in the previous Dakar's as well, but I believe his day will still come.

Starikovich crashes and is evacuated
Roman Starikovich did not even manage to complete 1 km of the special before crashing. Suffering from a back injury, as is his co-pilot Bert Heskes, the crew of Toyota No. 360 have been evacuated from the stage by the medical team.

Same place Alonso rolled his Toyota. Luckily they drove off unscathed.  :eek7:
