Race action from stage 5 of the #dakar2019 @bladehildebrand has finished the special and is on his way back to the Bivouac (Camp) in Arequipa Peru after the stage was shortened because of heavy fog
Well I'm still at work and checking in but I'd like to know if anybody else knows if Robbie is still running or if they called it for the night
Please excuse the spelling of Robbie I'm using voice text while driving well sitting in the parking lot now actually
316 was still on course an hour ago according to fish. Now get home and open the scotch!
RG and Kellon have been at WP5 for two plus hours, or the tracker is jacked again ..
With the heavy fog, I wonder if stage was called and they are on highway
Per the Dakar Website: The car / SxS / truck special has been halted at CP3 for safety reasons. Fog has made the end of the stage too hazardous and the competitors will therefore finish the stage after 425 km.
