Fuck, tell, them you don't need medic's.   :patch:  :biggrin:

He basically did that!  :lol8: Said stuff it and mounted his bike about to head into the dunes no matter what they say and then they talked to race direction and he just got penalties.

Great news, James back in the race.
He strongly objected and they decided to let him continue on the main road, but incur maximum penalty.
What a seriously determined Madala he is
This made my day! Go James!

Regardless of today's outcome, 2021 has been a fine edition.

ē Lots of navigational challenges.
ē The new rules around tyres and roadbooks, made for great tactical racing.
ē Lots of drama and intrigue at the top of leader board.
ē Saudi has got some beautifull landscapes and scenery to boost.
ē Some steller performances by rookies and lesser experienced riders
ē Some very good competition between manufacturers and even internally inside some teams.

Enough talking already, someone's about to take to the stage with a song..

So Confirmed no reverse order start....


07:32 Sunderland gets the last day underway
Super Sam Sunderland is the first rider to start the last special on the 43rd Dakar. Kevin Benavides, his main rival, will start six minutes after him. Title holder Ricky Brabec will be the sixth man out. The battle between these three men promises to be breath-taking.

07:56 Rossat grits her teeth to the bitter end
Among the women riders in the bike category, Audrey Rossat is about to finish her very first Dakar. Despite suffering a fractured rib on day five, pain in her wrists and a big bruise on her arm following a fall yesterday, the Frenchwoman will still be starting the rallyís last special!

08:39 A big blow for Van Beveren!
The nightmare continues for Yamaha! After Ross Branch, Franco Caimi, Andrew Short and Jamie McCanney, now Adrien Van Beveren, the last official representative of the team from Iwata, has run into technical problems after 30 minutes of racing...

After WP 1 its a 1 and 2 for Honda. Brabec will push till the end but with 6 min down Benavides will have to make a navigational error.

I dont mind Benavides winning - he rode a great rally

If I'm looking at the map, Benevides looks like he's gone off to take a leak..

OK no need to panic.  All back on track....

And this is once again what happens when you open a stage.

If Sunderland isnít careful the rookie might get podium at the rate Sam is losing ground.

He is not opening anymore so no excuses although he has been struggling with tendonitis in his wrist the whole race.

By now at least 3 other guys caught up to him physically - including Benavides, so he is going to stop the time bleed just by sticking with them. However right now it is panning out as I expected 2 Hondas at the top and Sam 3rd overall.
