The format is tighter for the day's race against the clock... as are the mountain tracks featuring in the special section. Experts in sliding and on the road will be able to showcase their skills here, as long as they stay constantly focused. Those hunting down the leaders will be on high alert during this route, which has been designed for opportunists. But the programme could also be transformed by any rain: even the strongest competitors do not necessarily perform well on heavy ground.

Today's stage has been shortened its now 190km long. Loeb will start the stage at 10:51am local time. The stage is expected to take about 3 hours for the leaders to complete. We are en route to CP3 now to shoot photos.

Looks like HRC was out for the win today with Bort, Benavides and Goncalves finishing 1,2,3 and American Brabec not finished yet but putting in a top 20 effort.

We just got word that Stephan Schott's Mini is out of the race. They hit a boulder and the car is done, both are okay. Drivers and car back in the bivouac, car not repairable. That is two Minis down so far. Are we starting to see some vulnerability in X-Raid?

Too bad. There goes the dream of finishing every Dakar since he started competing.

I am surprised this early into a 2 week race that they wouldn't fix it. I'm sure what they have plenty of spares and a welder.

He was the silent hero of the X-raid team. Always carrying parts and consistent finishes on every dakar that he raced.
