It was only yesterday when Coma was taken off, so things move a little slow.

At around $ 125k ++ to get a bike in, plus the right CV you need to be pretty keen, have loads of $$$$ or be good enough to be sponsored in a private team, or ultimately have one of the few factory rides, all in all Rally is not up there in the USA, a bit like soccer and rugby maybe, but with Johnny Campbell and Robbie Gordon and the efforts of KTM now pulling in US talent, maybe things will change as we move on?

Quinn should have been there also with Speedbrain, but he has had a shitty year on the injury front.
