At WP 10 only 46 seconds between Sunderland and Benavides for overall. Tomorrow won't be an easy stage so it's not the traditional "ride to the end" stage.

2 days ago, it looked like Honda for 1-4, now we only have 2 Honda's and 3 KTM's in the top 5...

Wonder what KTM's game plan will be tomorrow with Sunderland opening the stage...

Ja not sure about the authenticity of that snapchat clip but ja they do not have to refuel but they have to stop and it is a 15m decontrol as far as I know.

Turns out the fuel stop is not a control or waypoint....


Hmm - well the thot plickens then  :o   Now as speculated, surely if JBB intended to try and pull this move it would have been run past the team management and also offered to the other riders? Maybe he should have pushed the bike 30km  :imaposer:


Maybe a keyboard jockey comment, but it almost seems as if JBB finds a way not to finish the race each year?  :patch:

14:02 Barreda exits the race
It was likely to happen and now it has been confirmed: Joan Barreda has drawn his adventure to a close. The Spaniard, who had ground to a halt after running out of petrol, requested an examination by the medical team that has airlifted him to the bivouac.

So what does tomorrow's stage look like?

Any reasonable opportunity for Sunderland to catch up to P1? Seeing as he opens that might be too much to ask.

Yes I know, this is Dakar and it's not over till it's over....

So factory riders can pull a Sickie and get airlifted if they run out of fuel and quit? I wonder how long a Male moto guy would have been forced to wait for the sweeper truck to pick him up

They have 2 podium spots as we speak - 1st and 3rd and unless something dramatic happens tomorrow (DQ because of technical or injury), they will keep them as Sanders in 4th is 23 minutes behind 3rd Brabec. If anything - unless there is reverse order start - Brabec is in good position to get to 2nd as he is 6 minutes behind Sam, who is opening tomorrow (again - unless reverse starting order).

Edit: those 6 minutes in a way give KTM some hope that Brabec is going to push hard and possibly DQ. But given how level headed he was up to this point, I do not believe he is going to do something stupid.

Edit 2: But then - being American for whom only 1st position counts, he might actually push as he will have plenty of tracks to follow and he is less than 7 minutes behind Benavides. Will be interesting to see if he will try it or if some kind of team orders prevail. Interesting times... 8)

Not sure if I'd say this is the "norm".

I hope the jacket will make it.  :o

Produced by MIRA in Cape Town. Awesome product.

Are they colour blind?  :imaposer:
Hi original plan was to ship his own WR rally build bike, but realized it was better to join the BAS team. Jacket was already made by then.

I think James Alexander would enjoy opening up the stage, they should do it for him  :biggrin:

I am almost certain Benavides will win, followed by Brabec in 2nd and Sunderland 3rd

Why?

1. Sunderland is opening, and closing a 5 minute gap whilst opening is impossible.

2. That coupled with the fact that Brabec is starting in 6th position, he’ll have plenty of tracks to be on the pipe the whole day. He is used to gunning it an not crashing.

3. Benavides only needs follow the leaders and get up right behind Sam. Done.

All this falls apart if anyone of those crash out or this reverse start thing.

If reverse start, Sam or Brabec will take 1st.
