    Also Ricky Brabec is out from the leading position with broken engine and Svitko is out injured from an accident. Not a good day for bikers.

    Shame when the official website reports about Svitko as about Czech rider when he is Slovak...

    There are some strange times for the Semi category ("superally" crews). They say that had same route as cars and trucks but by their times Terranova would be fastest of all half an hour ahead of Loeb and Macík would by fastest trucker half an hour ahead of Sotnikov. This isn't possible I think.

    Think the media crew for Dakar is getting a bit tired.
    I think they have posted stage 7 results for stage 8 in the bikes at the end of this.

    It seems that this may have been caused by a thick fog in the morning. The late starting "Semi" crews may have not encountered it at all.

    Stéphane Peterhansel retired from today's stage due to a crash and his codriver's injury.

    Loeb, still lucky, is currently the first...

    probably transmission=driveshaft

    "I think we were doing a really good stage, pushing hard from the start, but at kilometre 250 or something like this we had a broken transmission. We had to change it, it's quite tough to do, but we have a spare one, so we changed it. Maybe we made a little mistake, we lost a lot of time trying to put a clips. Finally, we decided to go like this and it broke again, so we had to wait for Pierre [Lachaume] to give us his spare transmission. We changed it again, [it took] a long time and now we're here. That's just the way it is."
