Something going funny at WP1, maybe just a technical glitch but the top riders not reading it?  :o
The guys say they can do a Pistol on their 3D printer, not impressed I have had a Canon printer for years.

Yep, a glitch, but Walkner not showing?  Ross second fastest at WP1 so far.  :thumleft:

Walkner, clutch or gearbox issue.

Toby Price is a local hero here (in Gold Coast QLD Australia) and all the guys I have been riding with recently went to Bowen to see him race the Don River challenge which is a roughly 80km blast up a sandbed with some rock shelves to Pretty Bend which is roughly where I was going with the man on the dead KTM on the T7 thread.

08:06 Technical problem for Walkner
Matthias Walkner is experiencing a tough start to the special. The Austrian has more or less immediately encountered a problem linked to his gears or clutch. The official KTM rider, third in in the general standings, risks big losses today if he is not able to fix the problem quickly. In the meantime, his main rivals are starting to reach the first time check point after 46 km…

Tracking seems to have a Major Glitch  ::)

Guys are in at WP4 while others are not at WP3? and not one or two?  :sip:

Ja and the live timing map is not really in sync often with them hitting the various waypoints.  ::). Shows Ross riding with Micheck.  ... now corrected  ???

Navigation is looking to be tricky this year. TP is 9min down on Sam Sunderland at WP6 because he is opening.

Race day two looks set to deliver a lot of action   :ricky: . Why oh why do I need to focus on work now  :BangHead:

At the moment according to the live map Ross is riding semi alone with a few guys near him.

This is a more accurate and informative to see where someone is in the field. What is great is that it shows them relative to others and more importantly to the leaders' times;

To get there, click "Waypoints" on the top right next to "Live Monitor". Then once that page comes up, click on "WP1" (or which ever you one you want) on the top of the columns, not top left. Then click on your riders name to get the graphic.

At the moment, Toby and many others are the big losers and Ross has gained enough to be only a few seconds behind Bareda overall!

Ross is having a helluva day. 3rd at WP6 and only 2m47 down on JBB.  TP is having a rough day at the front as can be expected though. He was 17m43 down on JBB at WP6 which puts JBB on top. Early days though, there is still a long race to run and a lot can change as we saw last year.

10:20 Walkner is on the move again
Matthias Walkner, who suffered a technical problem in the first kilometres, has finally managed to resume the special. However, the Austrian has lost 2 hours and 15 minutes repairing his KTM...
