The start of the third stage in the 2012 Dakar rally is about to commence, but already the number of withdrawals* are up to 5,4% as a total. Both bike and care categories are down 12 units from the start. Trucks and quads keep it cool, just losing one unit each. Though to the smaller quad category this means a 3,3% withdrawal rate.
Thank you Jolanda Sjöblom for your help!
