FIRST BIKES AT THE NEUTRALISED ZONE

The first 15 bikes are now in the 55-km long neutralised zone on the way to the start of the last portion of the special and its 146 kilometres, a portion on which they will have to remain vigilant due to a first zone of fesh-fesh.

Ah silt... Hope to see some epic photos from this.

"Antanas Juknevičius is in a race against time to reach the start of the special before the cut-off time. The 12th-placed finisher on the Dakar 2018 is trying to repair his engine after an error during maintenance which could prove to be costly!"

What did his engineers do? Drop a nut into the intake?!?!

Since RG is obviously out of contention at this point, do you think he says "F it" and goes all out, to hell with the speed limit? I guess it would depend on the level of repairs done to the machine, the terrain and his attitude. Thoughts?

No because they will DQ him instantly and he wont be able to do anymore stages

Im pretty sure the rules said there was only a time penalty, not DQ for each infraction......But then again as of mid-October, there was no speed limit either and we know how that went.
