Another Dakar book I read a long time ago, and just found again is Against Gravity, by Ed McCAbe.

Interesting story of one man's failure to finish. Its not exactly a great book, or even a really good one.. but for sure there is something to learn in this guy's experience.

So it's official - bike launch in 2014 - let's hope the reliability is there in just over 2 weeks time!!!!

Honda's Participation in the 2014 Dakar Rally

Honda will participate in the motorcycle class in the Dakar Rally to be held in January 2014 in South America, with its works team “TEAM HRC".

Five riders—Helder Rodrigues (Portugal), Sam Sunderland (United Kingdom), Javier Pizzolito (Argentina), Joan Barreda (Spain), and Paulo Goncalves (Portugal)—will ride the CRF450 RALLY, a rally-racing bike specially developed for the 2014 Dakar. TEAM HRC took the CRF450 RALLY for testing and competed in the 2013 Morocco Rally, a prelude to the Dakar Rally held in October of this year, and also the 2013 Merzouga Rally. The team took victories in both races.

To further popularize the sport of rally racing, Honda is planning to market the CRF450 RALLY in 2014 for teams and individuals who are aspiring to compete. As part of the verification process, Honda will provide pre-production models of the CRF450 RALLY and on-site technical support to riders Pablo Rodriguez (Argentina), Jean de Azevedo (Brazil), and Laia Sanz (Spain), all of whom will race in the 2014 Dakar Rally.

Tetsuo Suzuki
Senior Managing Officer and Director
Chief Operating Officer, Motorcycle R&D Center, Honda R&D Co., Ltd.
President, Honda Racing Corporation
“Since our entry in the 2013 Dakar Rally in January, the Motorcycle R&D Center and HRC have focused on developing an outstanding machine and a winning team. The 2014 Dakar Rally spans more than two weeks, but through this race we will fight to the finish to share our dreams and exhilaration with our customers. Next year starting with the Dakar Rally, HRC will boldly move forward to share the excitement of two-wheeled motor sports with its fans world wide, and we look forward to continued support for HRC"s activities”.

Katsumi Yamazaki
TEAM HRC Rally director
“Everything was new and we learned much from the 2013 Dakar Rally, since the last time we raced in the Dakar was 24 years ago. This year we will put together a winning team in a very short period, carefully considering the machine, rider and crew. We know we are on the right track since we won the Morocco and Merzouga rallies on our brand new CRF450 RALLY, and our team will do its best to achieve the ultimate goal, winning the Dakar. We appreciate all the support, and hope everyone will cheer us on as the team fights all the way to the checkered flag”.

On 4th January, at 11:00 AM, there will be an official press conference at Rosario City Center, Rosario (Argentina), with all TEAM HRC and other official Honda teams supported in this 2014 Dakar Rally

Has anyone got/made a comprehensive list of all the inmates or deserving privateers we should be paying (supporting with cash!) attention to? I have a small hole burning in my pocket and want to get my t-shirt/sticker/good guy collection ready for the year.

Not sure it's comprehensive, but...

Peter Hardy is a great guy from SoCal who is going, and who I supported- try paypal to: peterhardy@sbcglobal.net

Mike Johnson is also a great guy, haven't seen a link to help him.

Kevin Muggleton, of course...

Who am I missing in my pre-breakfast haze?
