Stage 6









Stage was cancelled at first but will now go ahead. It has been shortened due to weather for bikes.

Sad to report that Wessel Bosman has been prevented from sharing Stage 6. He arrived in the bivouac just before the start of the days face and for safety reasons he was pulled. To dangerous to let him ride among the cars and trucks from reports

Stage 8









100 riders remain.

What chance that a differnt marque may break the KTM dominance this year?
With Sunderland out and Price not looking on form, possibly Benavides, JBB or van Beveren may take the win.

But still a long way to go.

KTM went on the hunt on this stage. Price and Sanz were there or there abouts the whole day.

JBB has a hard fall and there was a concern that his knee was broken (stage 7) but he is soldiering on.
