    One of the more informed will probably know.the full details. But I think Las year or year before there was a really bad storm mid SS and some of the riders didn't get in to bivouac until gone midnight. Then they still had to do all prep for next day eat and sleep.

    The stamina and determination of even the lower ranked riders always amazes me.

    thats my point ................to do what they do they need to get the stage done, to maximise ,rest,eat, and service time because without those 3 your not going to finish

    Balanced with riding slow enough to keep the bike as damage free as possible so you aren't up all night fixing it, if you are doing your own spattering...

    It's the other, team supported competitors that have to nurse their bikes/cars through two days with no outside assistance.
    I meant the long stages, not the no assistance days for the others. Coming up in the next day or two there will probably be some mega long stages with a few hundred km's of liasons either side where it will be really difficult to get in before dark if you started last and don't go fast enough.

    Ah right. A marathon stage is the no assistance days.

    The hardest stages were supposed to be pre rest day this year. The idea being the first half splits the men from the boys but then it settles down to allow people to race. Whether it will actually turn out like that who knows. Traditionally its the big dunes that slow people down. Im not sure if there are any this year, the route has changed somewhat.
