With the 2018 Dakar Rally nearing an end, Stage 11 marked the first leg of the Marathon stage for the bikes. Running from Belen to Fiambala, the stage consisted of a 205km liaison followed by a 280km timed section.
After a strong stage the previous day, Stage 11 proved to be yet another fruitful stage for Hero MotoSports. Oriol Mena continued his top form to finish the stage in ninth place, helping him make his way up to 10th place in the overall standings. Meanwhile, his teammate CS Santosh completed the stage 33rd, gaining four spots in the general classifications for an overall 35th place.
Sherco TVS also had reason to cheer, with Joan Pedrero delivering a strong performance to finish the stage in eighth place – his best stage result in the 2018 Dakar Rally yet. The result has helped him inch closer to the top 10, with a 14th place overall ranking.
Stage 12 of the rally was set to see competitors traverse 723km to San Juan. However, organisers have decided to cancel the stage for the bikes and quads categories due to safety concerns because of the weather. The stage will continue as planned for the cars and trucks categories, though, since their route is different.

Refugees in Bangladesh don’t want to be repatriated to live in a Myanmar transit campIn the last week I have spent time in Cox’s Bazar in Bangladesh among the Rohingya refugees in the camps of Kutupalong and Balukhali. It has been a distressing experience to speak to so many people with so little left in their lives.I spoke to one mother of nine children, who said they fled their home in fear after her neighbours were killed. It took her eight gruelling days to get to safety. She is absolutely insistent that she won’t go back to Myanmar without the documents that establish her right to be there.

Yiannis Chryssomallis, Giánnis Chrysomállis; born November 14, 1954, known professionally as Yanni, is a Greek composer, keyboardist, pianist, and music producer who has spent his adult life in the United States.
Yanni continues to use the musical shorthand that he developed as a child, blending jazz, classical, soft rock, and world music to create predominantly instrumental works. Although this genre of music was not well suited for commercial pop radio and music television, Yanni received international recognition by producing concerts at historic monuments and by producing videos that were broadcast on public television. His breakthrough concert, Live at the Acropolis, yielded the second best-selling music concert video of all time. Additional historic sites for Yanni’s concerts have included India’s Taj Mahal, China’s Forbidden City, the United Arab Emirates’ Burj Khalifa, Russia’s Kremlin, Puerto Rico’s El Morro castle, Lebanon’s ancient city of Byblos, Tunisia’s Roman Theatre of Carthage, India’s Laxmi Vilas Palace, the Egyptian pyramids and Great Sphinx of Giza, and the Amman Citadel.
At least sixteen of Yanni’s albums have peaked at No. 1 in Billboard’s “Top New Age Album” category, and two albums (Dare to Dream and In My Time) received Grammy Award nominations. Yanni has performed in more than 30 countries on five continents, and through late 2015 Yanni had performed live in concert before more than 5 million people and had accumulated more than 40 platinum and gold albums globally, with sales totalling over 25 million copies. A longtime fundraiser for public television, Yanni’s compositions have been used on commercial television programs, especially for sporting events. He has written film scores and the music for an award-winning British Airways television commercial.
Yanni popularised the combination of electronic music synthesizers with a full scale symphony orchestra. He has employed musicians of various nationalities and has incorporated a variety of exotic instruments to create music that has been called an eclectic fusion of ethnic sounds. Influenced by his encounters with cultures around the world, Yanni has been called a “true global artist” and his music is said to reflect his “one world, one people” philosophy.
