Why are some guys referred to as "aliens"?

The ability to read a road book, read terrain, navigate, all at once while riding flat out and making it look easy, when everyone around them are struggling and breaking bikes and getting lost. They are "aliens", the Dakar has always had a few.  :thumleft:

Winning a stage, hence opening the next day, looks like being a liability, JBB has lost 8 minutes at the first WP, how will team tactics change, will the front runners bunch more to get a good time but avoid the lead?  ::)

Still very early on but Ross is in a good spot for podium if he can keep finishing the stages between 3rd-6th place.

Toby Price is back on the pace today being only 23seconds down at wp2. Barreda's pace seem to be very similar to TP's from yesterday, it is tough at the front.

Iím thoroughly upset about Price and Walkners bike issues! I mean címon KTM, clutch and fuel supply issues on the 2nd day? Itís not like they havenít been doing this for years already. Mechanical issues halfway through, sure, but this is unacceptable especially given the pressure of having to take the title back.

Thereís only one person that has what it takes to take back No1 for KTM, especially at their current deficit, and thatís Price. There are many riding gods on this forum But this guy is next-level.

Sunderland and Walkner are good, actually just... ďmehĒ, but with the stiff competition lately it needs a special kind of rider and Price is a special kind of fíed-up luckily.

If youíre a Dakar fan, have a look at what a machine this guy is and his abilities:

Kurt Caselli called it when Price was enlisted as the water boy and got podium on his FIRST Dakar. Took Brabec about 5 tries? Ignoring that his ride gave him quite a bit of troubles previously of course.

The Ricky Brabec segment is also pretty good - Also a guy with a lot of talent. Personally I think besides Price, KTM can do a lot better ito riders,

Seeing that Brian and Taye is currently doing better than Geniel, will they get a Gazoo toyota for next year? >:D

Met die pace van die ander manne, kan ek net nie sien dat Geniet weer in daai top 5 gaan kom nie.

Interesting to note the times of the first 10 or so bikes on stage. It is very tough at the front, look at the difference in pace with the guys running behind them.

18 🇧🇼 R. Branch P2 @ PK235 Provisional

117 🇧🇼 J. Alexander P90 @ PK88 Provisional

Benavides still leads
Kevin Benavides is maintaining his lead ahead of Toby Price. The Australian trails by a little more than 20 seconds while Matthias Walkner, who lost almost two hours on Monday due to a technical problem, completes the top three, 1í21 behind the current stage leader. The Honda and the two KTM lead the first Yamaha on todayís stage, ridden by Caimi Franco.

Ross was 18th at WP5/km235. Need to wait to post the standings for each waypoint until at least the first 15-20 bikes have passed through.
