This is from Stage 4, but pretty cool.

From David Casteu

“It was tough. For the first 50 km it was okay, but in the middle there was a lot of water. Still, we rode through it at around 140 or 150 kmph and in some places there was about 15 cm of water. The bike was flying above the water. But I don't think Etienne should have any regrets at all: it was amazing for the riders. That's what the Dakar is about: you need to know how to handle the race, the repairs, the terrain, the climate… If it's just to ride the dunes around Iquique, you'd come along with your mates to have a laugh with an endurance bike. But this, this is what the Dakar is all about! One week ago, we were in Argentina wondering how we were going to manage to get out of the furnace like 50 degree heat and this morning we were wondering if we would need our waterproofs and double screen goggles. It's the hardest race in the world and I think the organisers were right to take this decision. There is a very strong emerging generation, but today you could see that experience counts a lot. At the refuelling point, most of the riders were the older ones, apart from one young lady who left us most of us trailing. On the salt lake, she was the one leading the pack. She's incredible, she's always there. She's one hell of a lady!”

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.

Comment by Jaci on January 11, 2015 at 2:41pm

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