Marc Coma's 2013 Dakar might not happen!

"Marc Coma is in serious doubt for the Dakar. Marc Coma may be limbo for the next edition of the Dakar, which starts on January 5 in Lima (Peru). The Spaniard suffered a fall at the Rally of Morocco in which he injured his left shoulder and has since worked at top speed toward his recovery. Although it seemed that his recovery was favorable in recent days the triple champion of the great desert race has found that his fitness is not ideal to meet the demand of so much competition. He still lacks the strength to control his KTM.
Coma, also following the recommendations of its advisers, has decided to suspend all events in which he had planned to participate this week to focus on his recovery, undergoing an intense, specific work program.
Coma will appear at a press conference on Friday in Barcelona, at which it will be known if he is finally ready for the Dakar, but today the options to make this happen are really minimal."
