Coma hit a lurking tree stump that catapulted him into a tree , he was groggy , then lost conciousness .  :(  Medics have sent him to Dakar hospital .  :(

They say he did'nt know what happened , same with Istre he also did'nt know what happened . When I did my Lesotho dismount , I too was'nt sure what happened or where I was , still have no recollection of the crash . I remember lying on the ground , knowing my bloody colar bone was broken again though !!!

Tom seems to have got a penalty for not waiting the full 15 minutes at the fuel stop ,  :oops:  oh what a silly mistake !!!! :oops:

I see he won his class today , despite the penalty that dropped him to 6th on stage , instead of 2nd.

Oz is still thundering along slow and steady , good for him !  :lol:  Tomorrow another critical day , last day , although timed is really just a cruise , no one wants to toss it on the last day !


Any news on Coma?

He is fine. He was at the finish in Dakar chatting to Cyril Despres... he just had a slight concussion.

That is the nature of the game. You win some, you lose some. It is how the coockie crumbles and the mop flops.

My freind Chris Varju said in an email he sent me today that for him the Dakar passed very quickly.

He had a good ride, without too many major dramas.

Second Dakar and this time he got there.

Good stuff.
It's not just a mode of transport, it's a fking adventure!

Coma is a tough bloke .

Never forget , he won the world championships in 2006 !

So , yes it is a big blow not to finish 2007 , but for this year any way he is number 1 .

Good luck to all of them , they certainly deserve their finishers badges !
