fwiw. I'd say the Speedbrain style chassis (that is rear main tank, front header tank, slim ergos and linkage suspension) and a KTM450RR engine would be an excellent combo for the 'new' Dakar, especially at the Factory sharp end?

I can't help thinking that this move represents consolidation of the various off road brands and may ultimately lead to a reduction in the diversity of manufacturers competing in events like the Dakar. As a neutral fan this would make things less interesting to me. Surely if Pierer maintains his links with KTM/Husa then we aren't going to be seeing any factory or semi-factory Husqvarna effort in Rally Raid in a few years time?

After all the crashes in the Dakar rally has Annie cobbled together – and come back. But störtdykningarna among the dunes has not gone unnoticed. An hour before the start of the Swedish Rally dropped out one shoulder dislocated. '

Yes - I think it has a lot of potential! - well, with the TE449 modified version of that engine at least - I know BMW/Speedbrain struggled in the Dakar with the original G450X version cooking it's clutch and stuff like that...

Yes, he'll be competing in cart races using large Red Bull cans. It's a joke/commercial.

Looks like it's a real Red Bull "soap box" event and they are using Cyril to promote it - maybe Vettel wasn't available, or they didn't have the budget

Bolvia

LA PAZ, Jan. 16 (Xinhua) -- Bolivia's President Evo Morales Wednesday said his country "is close" to be included in the 2014 Dakar Rally, due to the negotiations held with organizers of the international motoring event.
"We are close to achieve the goal, due to we have held negotiations for two or three years. My government will continue negotiating, with the participation of our institutions and experts in the motoring issue to guarantee this international event," said Morales during a public event.

Before the beginning of the 2013 Dakar Rally Jan. 5, Bolivia was informed that to be part of the 2014 edition, the country needs the support of Peru and Argentina, besides investing some four million U.S. dollars for the organization.

At the beginning of January, Minister of the Presidency Juan Ramon Quintana and Culture Minister Pablo Groux said they began the negotiations in Lima, Peru, with the representatives of Amaury Sport Organization (ASO), the rally's organizer.

About the negotiations, Morales said that according to the last meeting held by Groux and Quintana with the organizers,"they have advanced a lot."

Morales asked all the government's institutions and authorities to be prepared to contribute in the possible development of the rally in Bolivia.

On the other hand, Quintana said Dakar Rally is an open door so that Bolivia can show the world its tourism capacity and its current economic growth.

Quintana said Bolivia has the conditions to be part of the international motoring competence and that it's essential to position Bolivia as a country brand in the world context and the rally is the door for this tourism goal.

The minister added that Bolivia's participation in Dakar Rally will be useful to promote extraordinary tourist sites, such as Salar de Uyuni, the world's largest salt flat, as well as the Bolivian Amazonian and tropical regions, among others.
