Rider needs assistance in Almaty, Kazakhstan

Edit And another one in Samarkland Uzbekistan (see below)
Hi

A Mongol Rally entrant (Geoff) is stuck in Almaty. he was doing pretty well on the Mongol riding an old Suzuki GN125 but it has lunched a piston and valve and he needs some help.

I think he has 4 days to clear the Russian border because of his visa.

Anybody know/recommend/is located in Almaty who could help?

PM me or post here if you can help.

And there is a second guy down in Samarkland, Uzbekistan. Chris.

'Richard I'm in Samarkand, Uzbekistan. Need to find a mechanic. bike has a Honda 250cc engine. put a new carb today. electronic seems fine but won't start. had overheating problems, maybe from cooling failure, maybe from bad fuel quality'

Same shout, anybody out there or know any guys locally?

As indicated, My Town Moto has very good mecanichs: I've been there last july, it's close to restaurant Tourandot.
Otherwise he can try to contact Marat from http://www.silkoffroad.kz or go to the local motoclub, but I think he will be ok with the My Town Moto guys.
