Both Jarvis and Knight have expressed interest in the Dakar in interviews before.

I'm really interested how this is going to play out for Viladoms.

Who's taking the GasGas seat?
¨
Put it in a raffle hat and draw a name... only FIM international licence holders need apply.


This move by Jordi cements the Mercinary title he has carried the last couple of seasons... Can't blame him for jumping at the KTM call... but GasGas must be pissedpissed... The bike and support gear is all shipped and so forth...

Don't think his name on a signed contract will be worth much in future... oh, unless he WINS the rally of course.

I start thinking that KTM, for whatever the reason, starts to look desperate in getting all the seats filled so that they do not loose the crown. I am just thinking out loud...

I'm with you. Plus, Villadoms jumping ship so close and after GG has supported him to this point is a pretty low thing to do, pretty crappy actually. Maybe the GG support was minimal? Contracts broken? I'm just a little taken aback. No honor amongst thieves I guess.

Gas Gas let go Viladoms KTM

11.26.2013 · A LA UNE RALLY · 0 COMMENTS
Gas Gas has announced officially facilitating the departure of its pilot Jordi Viladoms to KTM Team for the Dakar 2014. For Gas Gas , Jordi Viladoms was the cornerstone of the team formed with Gerard Farres and Marc Guasch and his bike was already well on the way to Argentina. Catalan brand has displayed " sportsmanship in not objecting to Viladoms from another team , taking account of the reasons which led to this change ."
" Gas Gas wish good luck to Jordi Viladoms and focuses on the Dakar 2014 starts in just over a month. The project remains intact and the team that will participate in the world's toughest test will be presented soon. "

Jordi Viladoms :
"We had big plans with Gas Gas , a promising future. Unfortunately, the tragic circumstances (note: death of Kurt Caselli ) that has met the KTM team led them to seek a solution and they came into contact with me. For me, this is a sports opportunity. I hate to leave the Gas Gas project because I had opted for a long-term program which had already begun to bear fruit , with results in direct competition with the strongest teams in the Dakar . I am very grateful to Gas Gas , and I enjoyed the experience with this team. The project is good and I wish them good luck to those who were my teammates and the entire team who work on this project. "

Nicely written. You can be sure Jordi will never be given that opportunity with Gas Gas again.

I suspect that unless he can stretch out this KTM ride, nobody else will touch him, and that's it for him except for Malle Moto...

They proved on the Myth Busters show that you can put a shine on a turd, just like this press release. However, no amount of shine is going to take the stink out of this stack of feces. I hope that this venture bears fruit for Jordi, I cannot imagine he is going to have much of a fan base left after this and that would mean diminished marketing power. Not being from his home market, I could be totally wrong.

Wouldn't it be great if the rider that gets Jordi's Gas Gas wins. Karma :)
