The Machines

By my unofficial dump into Excel and formulate it out, this looks to be the bike breakdown. A nice mix this year. The Gas Gas Desert bike looks great. Interesting that no one is running any Aprilia's this year, they've done pretty well in the past few years.

128 - KTM
51 - YAMAHA
24 - HONDA
6 - BMW
4 - BETA
4 - GAS-GAS
3 - SHERCO
2 - JINCHENG
1 - HUSQVARNA

I thought I saw a Kawasaki in one of the pictures, maybe it dropped out.

What are you looking at to make that list, I would love to see what everyone is riding.

Thanks

Just the list of entrants, here. I copied/pasted it into excel and ran a few formulas to tally up the different makes.

Well, Aprilia is probably the only manufacturer with a 100% finish rate in the Dakar.... but it was only one bike. In 2007 a Dutch team ran one and finished, due to some luck, and a very busy mechanic.

John Deykes from LA was going to run one last year, but then they went and cancelled the race on us.
