And the gift box wrapped win for Peugeot begins. Canceling a stage for poor working conditions. SMH.

Yes have been there during the 2006 & 2007 baja UK round of FIA world cup of cross country rallies its shame we don't run that event anymore.
Used to have a house just up the road in a tiny village called Pennant. Was there for the Baja when Alistair McRae was debuting the McRae Enduro. Can remember what year it was, but Sheikh Hamad Bin Eid Al Thani from Qatar won the World Cup for T2 that year.

sainz just cruising im sure....lead car is DANGEROUS, just like baja....with a huge lead he has, let the others pass him and break the trail, much safer for him.....then gets to follow them again on the next stage with still having an HOUR to spare.....carlos NOT dumb, or getting schooled by any means....

SPH at full gas and will likely win the stage with Depres in second on the stage...going to set up beautiful protection for Sainz. SPH also to be on the verge of taking 2nd place overall back from NAAT as well...

Must have been a stage that favored American style on bikes...4 riders inside of top 21 on the day with Esposito in 15th, Short in 17th and Samuels in 21st in addition to Brabec in 2nd

Crazy they even got Depres to the finish yesterday. T4 must be hailing around a ton of parts for them.

And they cancel tomorrow’s stage to give them time to rebuild. Peugeot = French, ASO = French.

5 or 6 trucks in total for Peugeot at the event and I'm sure they can get something flown in if necessary.

Your sure he’s cruising? He opened the stage and averaged 93kph and the stage winner averaged 95kph.

Are we doing those excuses again? Can't we just have a rally raid without this crap again? :/
