Been watching the Dakar coverage on YouTube, and so far the scenery has been blowing me away. But what is happening to Despres? Without Coma as his team mate, and main competitor, I was expecting him to romp it. Currently he's almost half an hour off the lead.

Nevermind Despres, he gotten beaten yesterday by Pyndon (Lyndon Poskitt - 168 ), only the second ever brit to score a top ten place on a Dakar stage.

He lost 5th gear which slowed him down as it was a marathon stage he could only swap engine a competitor which cost him a furter 15 minute penalty. Mind before all that he was up there but not in the lead.
