Woops. KTM on the head.
You found the pic of Ned holding the fairing up for me. Yes. 450x HONDA. That is his '06. I have his shiny new '12 here that he will use at Dakar.

I have not heard directly, but the other is Louis on the 150 again!

Funny, both US riders are not from the US. F-ing French

Here is a video of a brief chat I had with frans on the 12th of January minutes before the start of the first special in Peru. He was pretty miffed with the way the Sherco people had treated him so Im really glad he now has an official Yamaha team.



Sorry about the poor sound quality. You will see Cyril there as well but he was too important to chat to me. The little mud man was probably worrying about the previous days events and how he could stay ahead of Coma.

Good to see he is still approachable during the rallye! He is a pleasant guy to talk to, plenty of of banter and likes to show off his trial skills
