2015 Dakar Rally – Stage 10 Results

I got an email yesterday noting that I was being harsh toward Nani Roma and the author pointed out that the time-of-day arrivals at the checkpoints did not support my rant that Roma should not have passed Al-Attiyah.  The actual time of the arrivals yesterday were as follows:

Start:                                                                                                                                                               Al-Attiyah 10h16                                                                                                                                     Roma   10h25

CP1                                                                                                                                                                 Al-Attiyah 11h34                                                                                                                                       Roma   11h43

CP2                                                                                                                                                                 Al-Attiyah 11h43                                                                                                                                       Roma   11h52

CP3                                                                                                                                                                 Al-Attiyah 12h11                                                                                                                                       Roma   12h19

Finish                                                                                                                                                            Al-Attiyah 15h04                                                                                                                                      Roma   15h06

So the data supports that Roma stayed behind Nasser Al-Attiyah all the way, which to my mind is what he should have done.  I did over react.

Today’s Stage 10 went from Calama, Chile to Salta in Argentina.  The day started out with a 385 kilometer transit that took the competitors across the border into Chile.  The Special Stage section was 358 kilometers long to a 116 kilometer transit to Salta.

Today might have been the day that has set Nasser Al-Attiyah up to win the Dakar Rally for 2015.  He won the stage and gained 4 and a half minutes on DeVilliers.  DeVilliers is running out of stages.

Yesterday’s stage winner, Nani Roma, had a spectacular accident today.  I don’t know the details but I understand that his Dakar is over.

Attiyah Wins Stage 10 (2)

Al-Attiyah Is In A Great Position To Win The 2015 Dakar Rally

The following are the standings after Stage 10.  With Al-Attiyah’s 28 minute lead over Devilliers it appears that Devilliers can’t win the 2015 Dakar, but Al-Attiyah can still lose it.

Barreda bounced back today with a stage win.  He finished about a minute and a half in front of Marc Coma.  Coma finished 2 minutes ahead of his nearest rival Goncalves on a Honda, who finished 5th on the stage.

Coma now has a 7 and a half minute lead over Goncalves and I suspect that Coma will be able to manage that lead to the end.
