    UNYIELDING FIAMBALA
    It is very rare for nothing to happen in Fiambalà! And in 2012 rain ensured that this lethal white sand remained firm, allowing the vehicles of the Dakar to pass through this prime spot for getting blocked and for engines to overheat, without recoiling or stalling. These dunes with their very welcoming contours typically have a very unpleasant surprise in store for competitors. Everything is possible in Fiambalá, including in the new strings of dunes featured on the route. The third part of the rally will boast sand once again, and each person will have to adapt his driving and his general approach to the terrain: those who are less attentive will also risk making serious navigational mistakes which will cost them dearly.

    With the time difference, does that mean a start time of 4:38am central time? If so, ugh.....

    The connection at the start is 260+k. It looks like he is set to start the special at around 10am eastern. Maybe your looking at the time to start the connection.

    Orlando Terranova took starter's orders at 11.53 AM local time for this 190-km long special in which the cars and trucks will be taking a slightly different route to the bikes and quads.

    Kurt is now out in front of everyone...Testing his navigation skills again to regain confidence? A 2nd stage win would tie him for the most in a Dakar by an American rider would it not? With a few stages left? If he isn't on the KTM team REGARDLESS of Coma next year, there is something wrong.
