BIKES News from stage 8 as it happens

2013 - Argentina/Chile
1st start (GMT-3) : 6:40 AM


 

 

15:24 - bike
010 - Casteu takes the overall lead

David Casteu has moved to the top of the general classification following the eighth stage with a margin of 9'26" over Cyril Despres and 11'16" over Ruben Faria. Fourth-placed Francisco Lopez (+12'00") has leapfrogged former leader Olivier Pain (+16'10"). The first eighteen riders are still within one hour of each other.


15:04 - bike
005 - The best "Barr" none


It's official: Joan Barreda wins today's special with a total time of 2 h 07'26", with Ivan Jakes second at 7'57" and David Casteu third at 14'13". Hélder Rodrigues came in fourth, 15'57" down, with Cyril Despres fifth at 16'09".



14:59 - bike
009 - A Pain-ful blow for Olivier


Today's special was a step back for Olivier Pain, who lost 37 seconds to the stage winner, but most importantly 23 seconds to David Casteu. He's also been overtaken by Faria and López in the general classification. We're now waiting for Cyril Despres.



14:50 - bike
005 - Barreda bounces back


Joan Barreda looks like he's going to make amends for his stroke of bad luck a few days ago by winning today's special. After leading the stage from the beginning, Barreda crossed the finish line with 7'57" on Ivan Jakes, 14'13" on David Casteu and 26'44" on Francisco López. Nevertheless, seeing how the special's gone so far, this classification is anything but final.




14:03 - bike
003 - Rodrigues' turn to get lost...


Hélder Rodrigues didn't take the same wrong turn as all the leaders, but he's quickly made amends by turning right a bit later and losing loads of time.



13:57 - bike
The riders lose their bearings


118 km into today's special, all the leaders on the course are straying off the right path. They're all heading towards the mountains instead of following the river, as they should.


It looks like Hélder Rodrigues and Paulo Gonçalves are the only ones who are still on track, but some of the leaders seem to be backtracking.

13:33 - bike
005 - Km 86 CP: Barreda, Despres and Grabham!


Joan Barreda (Husqvarna) still holds a fastest time of 55'02", with Cyril Despres 26" down. KTM's Australian Ben Grabham (+1'01") grabbed third place at km 86, followed by Svitko (+1'02"), Frans Verhoeven (+1'06"), Olivier Pain (+1'14"), Alesandro Botturi (+1'17"), eighth-placed Ivan Jakes (+2'08") and ninth-placed Francisco López (+2'18"), who's only got a one-second gap on Javier Pozzolito.




13:14 - bike
005 - Barreda and Despres take the lead at km 56


Joan Barreda has taken the reins of today's special with a time of 37'39". Cyril Despres lies second, 28" down.




13:04 - bike
006 - Svitko second at km 56


KTM's Slovak has moved into second place, 14" behind Frans Verhoeven but 10" ahead of Olivier Pain.




13:00 - bike
015 - Verhoeven fastest

Flying Dutchman Frans Verhoeven has just sailed to the lead at km 56, posting a time 24 seconds faster than former leader Olivier Pain's. Ruben Faria came in fourth, one second behind "Chaleco", whereas Juan Pedrero García posted the seventh best time, 2'10" down on the leader.




12:57 - bike
009 - Pain leads López and Caselli


Now that the first three riders have gone through km 56, Olivier Pain is in command with a time of 38'42", a mere 2" ahead of Francisco López and 1'20" ahead of third-placed Kurt Caselli. The American may have missed several waypoints during his excursion outside the course.




12:33 - bike
Caselli takes a wrong turn


The American leading the charge in the motorcycle category has strayed off course 30 km into today's special. Caselli "forgot" to turn right at an intersection and is now lost in the pampa.



12:09 - bike
The motorcycle special is underway



Only the motorcycles, quads and cars will be racing this afternoon. American Kurt Caselli was the first rider to start the special at noon local time, followed by "Chaleco" López and Olivier Pain, the Frenchman at the top of the general classification.



07:23 - bike
The motorcycles start the link section


American Kurt Caselli entered the road section which will lead him to the start of today's special at 7 am local time.


Due to bad weather, the start of the special for motorcycles, quads and cars has been pushed back to Punta de Balastro, which will come after a 300 km link section. The motorcycle race kicks off at noon local time.




06:08
First part of the stage cancelled


A few changes have been made to today's stage due to the torrential rain falling on the area: the first part of the special has been cancelled, including the entire Truck stage, which was supposed to take place on this part of the course. On the other hand, the second part of the special for cars, motorcycles and quads will go on as planned. The motorcycles and quads will set off at 12:00 pm local time, followed by the cars at 2:05 pm.



05:30
Salta-Tucuman: the very essence of Argentina


The road to Tucuman will be split into two timed sections (except for the trucks) with varying characteristics, as the bikers and quad riders finish their marathon stage...


The stage will be have three distinctive versions for the bike/quad, car and truck categories. Between tent rocks, canyons and cactuses, the competitors will reacquaint themselves with the red and green of Argentina's most beautiful natural theatre, for a distance of 150 km in a wild west atmosphere.


On the second timed portion, which will take place on a terrain not yet visited by the Dakar, the contrast will be evident on the tracks, which will be sandier and sometimes tricky. The weather conditions could also play a significant part, if the wind combines with the heat wave currently affecting the region.


Observers will be keenly watching the Al-Attiyah/Peterhansel duel and the racing situation is potentially explosive between the first bikes and trucks. Only Marcos Patronelli in his homeland can contemplate this day relatively calmly.
