Copy paste from their website
In the large moto category, Pal Anders ULLEVALSETER showed the competitors how good of a competition he is by winning this special stage, with 8’10’’ ahead of Lyndon POSKITT and 9’35’’ on Alessandro BOTTURI. Departing in 8th position, the Norwegian did not make any mistake on navigation, unlike the others. Indeed, Alessandro BOTTURI on his YAMAHA got caught up by Lyndon POSKITT on kilometre 40. The Italian opened the way several times but he lost the correct track, bringing the KTM and its British rider with him. Therefore, Lyndon also went on the wrong track. Later, the two leaders rode together until the finish line of this rather fast route. During this time, on his KTM, ULLEVALSETER was going full throttle and as in sport the best way to gain some time is not to loose any, the Norwegian ends up top of the general ranking with 1’29’’ ahead of Botturi and 2’01’’ on POSKITT.
Amongst the other performers of the day, the Italian Paolo LUCCI places his HUSQVARNA in 5th position just in front of the Norwegian F้lix JENSEN, who has performed nicely since the beginning. Konrad DABROWSKI, young 18-year-old rider from Poland confirms his potential by ranking 7th, just before his “professor” Jacek CZACHOR, long term co-rider of his father Mark DABROWSKI. The first moto +450 c3 is the KTM of the Italian Gabriele MINELLI finishing 16th and the winner of the Motul Xtreme Rider malle moto category is the excellent British rider Richard KAYE on his KTM.
Read this-
A last word on the Italian rider Nicola DUTTO, number 128 who has the particularity of participating in the AFRICA ECO RACE without having the use of his legs. This is possible for him thanks to two other riders, the Spanish Julian GARCIA VILLARRUBIA and the Italian Stefano BALDUSSI who hold his motorbike at departures, refuelling and at arrival. They are of course present to help him in case of any problem and putting back up in case of fall. For now, everything is going for the best for Nicola who, on his specially equipped KTM, is in 26th place on the temporary general ranking. Wow where there is a will (and $)there is a way

I think Lyndon is giving the AER a lot of publicity which is great. I'm following the Dakar with great interest, but this is the real race to Dakar!!!

Joey and Greg are moving very slowly together. I shouldn't wonder if one of them has a problem. But they are moving.

Lyndon has finished already, but Joey and Gregg are more than 100kilos back, sticking close together... Lets hope for the best

From Greg this morning.
Had a good day today. Was long and tough. Mostly rocky roads again with a 20km dune section and a 6 km sandy riverbed. I caught Joey in the dunes and we rode 400km together which was awesome. 9 odd hours on the bike. Feeling a lot more confident and comfortable.
Helped our teammate Matt out at the refuel so we gave up about 20 mins.
Foot and shoulder are 100% - hands are tired!
385km tomorrow of the same type of terrain as we continue to head south towards Mauritania.
Warmer every day which is great!
