South African Albert Hintenaus with his KTM 690 yesterday.
As a rookie to the Dakar he can still ride the faster bike.
Scrutineering was a scene of chaos, but he came through fine, strongly supported by Desert Rose Racing.
Thanks to them he was bumped up to No. 96 to give him a better chance of doing well, given his previous rally experience.
