    A painful challenge
    Good physical management will be the key to success in this second marathon stage for the bike riders, whose arms will not be spared by the hundreds of twists and turns and stony sections they will have to endure. The only way that car and truck crews will be able to get through this long day without getting stuck in the rios will be by carefully keeping to the road book.

    Liaison > 270 km - Special > 523 km

    The tracking has really sucked in the second parts of the rally these last couple days.

    They are long passed waypoint 8.. but can’t find a result on any page, just the written report.

    I just did the same thing. This is taking all of the excitement out of trying to follow along.

    Looks like NAA takes the win by 2:03 over SPH. Its interesting the times are different between the Dakar website and whatever Peugeot is using

    Another fun day in jagernauts category.
    After yesterday's troubles with broken driveshaft, former leader of the race, Nikolaev ended the day on second position +16min overall after Villagra. But later, Villagra was penalised for 15min for the broken straps on his front suspension. That had reduced his leadership margin by only 1minute on Nikolaev.
    Today, on stage 12 Nikolaev lost 30min,for unknown yet reason, in the beginning of the stage. But right after that Villagra, in his turn, lost 22min. So right now, as i write this, after WP8 the gap between them in virtual overall standings is 3minuts for Villagra. Quite entartaning for 12 stage of a long race I might say ;):)
