10:49 Broken wheel for Sainz
Carlos Sainz is still stuck at km 38 of today's special. The front left wheel of the Spaniard's Mini has almost been torn off. The champion seems about to surrender his crown…
Casie Currie having a good day
10:43 Joan Barreda throws in the towel!
Joan Barreda has decided to call it quits after failing to get his motorbike out of the basin where it was stuck. The Spaniard was touted as a favourite to win the rally and started today's stage in the lead, but his ninth Dakar has now come to a premature end in a crushing blow for Honda.
Robby thru wp3
Hildbrand in front
Just read up and once again see that the AS-h-O-les are doing their thing.
Off to work.
Blade up to 15th
RG lost a bunch between 2 and 3
With Hildebrand starting 9 min after RG, it looks like they crossed the waypoint about the same time.
