Their tracker was having a bad day. Nothing all day but they showed up at WP6 in 26th place and now the same spot at ASS.
things can always be worse!
You can watch the vids from octane27 on you tube. I don’t remember what stage it was that the guy got ran over but it’s worth watching all the stages ,great videos of the Dakar
I've seen that several times but no follow up. Two views of both feet being run over by one of the big blue trucks.
oh man. That's bad
Blade and RG thru WP4 2:22:20 43th and2:15:32 41st [lace respectively
None of the second half teams showing at wp4 but cole was +1h7m in class at wp3
All three textron,s thru wp5
Robby 37th blade 39th.about an hour of racing left, can catch a few more cars if all goes good
Cole running 9th in class at way point5 +1h:15m behind 1st including cas sxs and trucks
Wonder if he would be further ahead than that if it weren't for all of them running together.
