11:07 Brabec's stock rising
Although Ricky Brabec was 7′23″ slower than Sam Sunderland at WP5, he was still much faster than overall leader Pablo Quintanilla, who is trailing at 22 minutes. Brabec looks well positioned to retake the overall lead tonight.
Brabec finished the stage14:37 ahad of Quintilla
Back in the lead for Brabec! Thanks for the update Sabre, Dakar tracker not working on my phone
Blade is 45 at wp1 22 min back
Rg is 38 th 14:01 back
makes sense if they are trying to roll through it together today
yeah Blade most likely just waited for RG
Does anyone know what today’s stage consists of terrain wise? Hard pack, mountains, dunes, etc?
Casey Currie lost alot of time between WP1 and 2
Blade thru WP2 33:32 33th place up 20 postionsRg thru 40:11 back in 40th Peter leads Roma at WP5 3:13
