His teammate Sebastian Buhler, who has been impressive so far and was well poised to break into the top 15 in the overall rankings, suffered a technical issue with his bike and could not finish the stage on Friday. As a result he too is now out of the contention for the overall results, but like his teammate Joaquim Rodrigues, Buhler will opt to restart the race again in stage 7, and still compete for the stage results and gain valuable Dakar experience.READ | NFL Playoffs Divisional Round: Ravens’ Blitzkrieg, Chiefs’ Balance Likely To DominateGoncalves registers third top 10 stage finisAnother Hero rider C S Santosh continued to gain confidence as he too made a last dash for a better ranking on Friday to finish the stage in the 32nd place.

LIVE TV Also Read | Marshawn Lynch urges young players to ‘take care of their chickens’ in post-game interview SUBSCRIBE TO US WATCH US LIVE Former Seattle Seahawks’ star Marshawn Lynch was recently elected as the ‘Class Day’ guest speaker for Princeton seniors. Marshawn Lynch was drafted in the 2007 NFL season by Buffalo Bills after he impressed scouts while playing football for University of California, Berkeley. There was a lot of criticism generated at the decision-making processes by the Princeton students as they penned a letter in protest to the decision.

We do not mean to criticize this choice of speaker in particular, but rather want to call attention to the opaque selection process for Class Day speakers.”The letter went on to talk about the other grievances faced by Princeton students and their objections to Lynch’s off-field antics. The letter added, “On receiving the email about the speaker announcement, members of the senior class who were not aware of Lynch tried to learn more about his identity and relevance to our Class Day ceremony. Among articles that praised his NFL career and philanthropic contributions, we came across articles discussing Lynch’s reticence with the media and his terse responses at press conferences. In 2013 and 2014, for example, Lynch was fined $50,000 and $100,000 for refusing to speak to the media. During the 2015 Superbowl Media Day, Lynch famously responded to multiple questions with variants of ‘I’m just here so I won’t get fined.’ With no other frame of reference, such reports caused confusion over the set of criteria that led to his nomination.”Also Read | Marshawn Lynch heads to Packers locker room to exchange jerseys with Aaron RodgersFans support the idea of Marshawn Lynch addressing Princeton seniors COMMENT FOLLOW US Daniel Arambur read more
