From Jordi Viladoms

It was pretty obvious this morning that we couldn't set off, it was raining during last night, and there was water in the salt lake. It wouldn't stop raining and we were waiting at the starting line of the special stage feeling frozen, hoping for the race managers to cancel today's stage. In addition, we knew that if the salt lake was wet, the electronic device of the motorbike starts to get rusty and it begins to fail.

It turned out to be as we expected, because of a poor and unfair decision from the organization, who didn't even considerate the riders security nor the competitiveness.

Last night we thought that the special would be cancelled and today we couldn't believe it was not, it's been crazy.

I'm out of the race and it's not my fault, is because the organizations's poor judgement. To me the Dakar is over and it's not my responsibility.

Yes, "finding" new bars in a ditch that just happen to have the grips and controls installed. Only being a rider on a factory team is that possible.

@Jaci, my guess is a backmarker on a Honda may get his race payed for to swap bars, or he could end up walking to town and "finding" some in the roadside ditch.

Was. Not. Tested.

Damn! He's going to have to ride it back that way too, right? Unless he can straighten it somehow.
