Cool Dakar 2015 [with Spoilers]

160 bikes still going after the end of Stage-1 yesterday. Today they're only showing 85 at the end of Stage-2. 108F today. Must have been pretty ugly.



I also do not see the 'Gordini' listed among any of the racers for Stage-2 of the cars today. Finished 2nd for Stage-1, but today.. nowhere on the radar. Something bad must have happened. Peterhansel (now driving for Peugeot instead of Mini) came in 27th (now 22nd overall), over an hour after the leaders which is really odd. In fact, several big names came in over an hour behind the leaders. I'm betting Robby 'It's not my fault' Gordon is out though.



Despres (no longer riding, but driving), finished 24th today in his Peugeot.

Looks like 143 bikes are now reporting in, with the last guy being over 13 hours behind the leader. Shew.

Gordon in 50th place for Stage-2.

Re: Dakar 2015 [with Spoilers]

Some earlier reports today, was saying that Joan Barreda was first for Stage-3 on his Honda, but they're now showing the winner as being Matthias Walkner (KTM). Walker is now 3rd overall, 10:33 behind the leader.



Barreda finished 1min-53sec behind the leader to claim third. He is now leading overall. If his Honda holds up (and if he doesn't make any big mistakes), he could easily win the whole thing this year I think.


Coma finished 40-seconds behind the leader today, putting him 2nd for the stage. That puts him 4th overall, almost 11-minutes behind Barreda.

Laia Sanz, currently in 14th place overall. She is a bad ass, and only 1hr-30min behind the leader.

Re: Dakar 2015 [with Spoilers]

1/2 hour highlight show on NBCSHD this early Saturday morning. Showing next to last stage. When you see the overhead shot and see the bikes flying down the "road", you think "s**t, these guys are fast!", but when they then show a wheel level shot and you see just how rocky the "road" is, all you can think is "HOLY S**T! These guys are NUTS!"

Might be just my opinion, but I really believe that rally drivers/riders are just about the most skilled racers in the world....and the bravest. Love it!

I share the same opinion.

Thanks for the pics/links TTTom . That last video was intense.
