The three upper-right papers on the van look like Google Earth imagery of typical desert terrain. The lower-right is a map of what may be their practice course. I took that fuzzy image and re-did it below in Google Earth following existing roads in the Stoddard area. Looks pretty close!



I just rode that route last weekend!!!

The next morning, he spotted it lying on the table, cut it down to A5 width, put it in the Hog's roadbook holder and set off...

That's what I meant. I wouldn't expect you to be able to sleep otherwise.

That's EXACTLY how the "grid" part of the Pahrump Loops roadbook route happened!

HRC: Honda’s Rally Conundrum

HRC, Honda’s eponymous racing arm has a problem. In racing back to its place at the sharp end of long distance rally stardom after a 24 year break, it has created high hopes and even higher expectations throughout a rabid and vociferous rally fan base. Some of these hopes may have been dashed as in the midst of last minute preparations in California,two of the team’s top riders, this year’s Rally dos Sertoes winner, Felipe Zanol, and Dubai based motocross and baja star, Sam Sunderland crashed and unfortunately, were injured to the point that Sunderland is out and Zanol's participation is questionable at best....continued

Johnny Campbell will have to step in as was insinuated earlier in the HRC campaign. Maybe Honda can talk Jimmy Lewis out of his Dakar retirement to use his masterful nav skills that he taught Cyril Despres, when Cyril was his waterboy.

Sam's wrist

Well that won't be back in action for a while - but it will be back in action

Still no more news on Philipe as yet.

The op has been carried out and initially no problems, Sam has a scan on the other wrist later today, so fingers crossed

That's not good news at all. Will see how things unfold over the next month.

Honda should put Colton Udall on one of those bikes after winning Baja.

Absolutely. Zanol would be representing Brazil. Replace a Brazilian with an Argentinian?!? No way!!! There's as much rivalry as possible, Brazil being the bigger market (by a factor of 5 - in terms of population alone).

I have scanned the web and twitter in Portuguese also but can't find no more news on Zanol, quite worrying indeed :(

Despres published a nice video with just his highlihted roadbook of one of the Morocco rally stages - besides riding, the guy can paint lots of notes, scriblling and so on - quite interesting for the fanatics like ourselves (sorry for the off topic): http://i2.ytimg.com/vi/WV8OUe1rTHI/hqdefault.jpg

+1!

If HRC would go for it, what a perfect mochilero for JC. He expressed interest in Dakar during a post race interview with Scotty Breauxman on Race-Dezert after JCR Honda's hard fought Baja 1000 win this year.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DyWIW...layer_embedded

He is a great person. I met him at Jimmy Lewis' rally navigation clinic. He helped Kevin Muggleton change out a tube on the trail, stagehand has the video. He takes the time to help people all the time. I do not know if JC would want him to be exposed to more risk at this stage in his career, as he is groomed for baja. If the F5r's want to rally behind a racer with podium potential, it is CU. He is fast, smart and young. To propel him to HRC recognition, we should get permission from JC to put together a grass roots effort to get him to Australia this year. (free shipping) It is a Honda dominated event, and Colton could surf while there as well (he loves to surf!) This could give him the experience and exposure needed in route to the big show in 2014 and beyond. I am willing to put my money where my mouth is. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DyWIW...layer_embedded Watch the video, he is the kind of guy you would be happy to let your sister or daughter date!

Ha ha - my daughter has been going out with Sam for 4 years and we are very happy - now there's a riding partnership that would sit pretty well with the marketing boys! Sam and Colton that is, not my daughter

Sam should be at JC's race day tomorrow, he is having another scan today - you may struggle to recognise him though as he looks native SoCal, but he'll be the one with his wrist in plaster
