Ole Tobes really nailing it nicely.  Pity that riders get penalized having to open a stage when winning previous one but guess the format will never change.  Maybe Castera and his steam made the opening sections of the specials a bit more difficult for the top 10 riders to follow tracks - maybe some more rocky instead of sandy terrain.
“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"

Ross is in. Looks like he will be about 11 minutes behind Toby.

Looks like 9.47m at the ASS - should move him up.  Brabec, BB and boys screwed up early and sitting around 12m back. Early days though.

The spidergram from the dutch site (see below) clearly shows that there was some navigational mayhem at WPT 1. Just how relative positions changed dramatically, before things settled down.

All I can find on tyre rule.

Limitation of the number of rear tyres to 6 for the 12 stages (30 min penalties for non-compliance)

 Ross Branch: "I was trying to just do the best I possibly could"

January 3 rd 2021 - 13:59 [GMT + 3]

The Botswanan winner of a stage in the 2020 edition started fourth today and spent the day with the leading group but still managed to lose about 10 minutes to Toby Price.

"It was really difficult today. The navigation was tough, I think one of the toughest days in navigation I've ever had in rallies. It was really good fun, I really enjoyed it. I managed to catch up to the Honda guys and just try and stay with them because all of us seemed to be making navigational errors. I was trying to just do the best I possibly could, it was really difficult at the front for us five, but it's all a learning lession"

Yip. Tomorrow he'll have a few guys in front of him, so hopefully won't suffer navigational errors. I'm sure he'll haul in a few asses...

Really lekker having a live tracking map for the Dakar this year. There is also a time slider at the bottom of the page so you can replay.

Go ROSS!!!!
- you reckon that thing will pop a wheelie? We're about to find out, SLAP that pig!
