David Reeve from Zambia broke his leg, looks like Ullevalsetter helped him out quite a bit

Good morning all!

Helder at breakfast, looks a bit relieved the race is nearing the finish line I suppose

Question F5; a conversational f5ly on the wall...?



Helder to Henke: "... and then he say's...
... maybe if we put a fuel gauge on each of the five fuel cells...
we can see where the consumption is most...?"

Henke: "... sound's good... schedule a test for december then shall we...?"

"... there appears to be (several) fairly fundamental misscalculations in the building, preparation and execution of HRC's "return to Dakar".
the general heading of miscalculations will in your own inimitable words, do nicely thanks

Thanks a bunch you guys and gals, it's going to be weird when it's over. Now, time to do my workout (ugh), get to bed, and do it all over again...
Well said, thanks for sharing!

A few days ago a friend of mine looked at me and asked, what's wrong. I could barely speak and had to answer, that a rider of the DAKAR died in an accident. Someone I never met but still I was almost crying. My friend didn't know anything about DAKAR but asked and was interested in the stories. I met her 3h later again and then I had to asked what was wrong. She could only answer that she is sad because a rider died in the DAKAR. She doesn't understand why she was sad.

--> We are riders. Most of us are kind and nice people. Helping each other is quite natural for us. And that is a part of riding I really like ...

RIP Thomas Bourgin

It'a nice, 441km special, and there's bound to be some more HRC fuel consumption bashing.


Rumour has it that Helder is selling his spare gas at the end of the special - housed in special commemorative vials $ 1,000 per cc

Helder to Henke : and then we go ahead and blame it on an electrical fault. Right ?







f5ixed for accuracy ...

Call it like you see it ! Is HRC impressive on their first outing ? yes or no ? ( And no is not necessary a bad thing - because one only learns when things go wrong )
Not the best comparison , Caselli is a rookie with a a champion off road pedigree and Coma's bike

I believe there was only one fuel issue and we really don't know the reason, other than it has happened to Helder in a previous life also notwithstanding this whatever happened was nothing short of amateur

The HRC 450 - 100% a no, not podium material, but was the KTM and Husky 6 months after conception? - as you say not necessarily a bad thing, but I don't believe the pragmatists believed it was anything other than a 50/50 for 2013

let's revisit this for Dakar 2014, or as the year progresses

Mornin'...! Any idea what happened to Luis and Manuel yesterday? Can't see Luis in the starting list? I can't even think he made it to the bivouac pushing his bike ...
