Please HONDA - hire Ross and fire Barreda!!

My patience for one is completely exhausted by his repeated un-professionalism!
He can only look better on a "bad" and unreliable bike...
I'm certain his "f'up" cost the remaining Honda riders time as well - as they would most certainly have stopped to try and assist him...

On this note, has he finished a Dakar before as I had high hopes of him actually finishing this year.

And then how long will honda entertain his outright ruthless "style" if one could call it that!
Stroom op!

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....

I was wondering the same thing, but forgot it's normally a reverse start on the last day...

Not sure if I'd say this is the "norm".
But would be interested to know...

As far as I remember - at least in South America, the last stage was always reverse order. The reasons were practical - they wanted to give weverybody who finished chance to be on the podium, but didn't want to wait till dark for Alexander. So letting the last guys go first roughly brought everybody to the podium in reasonable timeframe, without need to wait for backmarkers.

But I'm not sure in Saudi Arabia, where they have one less stage than used to be in Africa and SA. How was the last stage last year - was it reverse order or the normal one?

How long is tomorrow's stage? No info on Dakar.com.

If it is just short one as used to be the case in SA (but on Saturday) - e.g. 30 km, then probably not much will change. If it is a proper one, then there is still good change for upset in top 3. And of course the strating order will be crucial.

Seems like proper stage, not just procession. Does anybody remember if the starting order last year was reversed?

That sounds like a proper race stage. Not just a ceremony.

Very unlike ASO

Thanks goonrider  :thumleft:

Given that it is a long stage I presume this one will also not be reverse order, which used to be used only on the Saturday short parade ride.

In that case I expect first two Hondas and Sunderland 3rd or out - he usually does not stand up to pressure that well.

James seems stuck outside WP9 for a long while.  :-\

Doesn't look good, but he just moved, maybe not?

Either way, its the "Prince of Darkness" again.  ::)

In the WP only ASS but a long way in the dark!

Still WP10 in between. The trucks nearly all passed him so the track is a mess...

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

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.
