I believe we have just seen a re-appearance of the previously missing in action, and now famous Mustache Man of the 2010 Dakar experience.

ASO is making us wait some more............hopefully by the end of the week we will know if we are in or not.

Chris B is currently racing in SA for Alfie Cox KTM. He has really been great here and made plenty of new friends seems like a real standup guy and super talented at racing and riding. Think ASO will give him a spot if he enters.

He is brilliant and I would think ASO would grab him if he entered.

I think now that Quinn has gone .. you will see many of the younger desert/enduro racers wanting to follow suit.. Thought CB rode for Beta?

Go Jonah!

Some areas received up to 80 centimeters (32 inches) of snow, leading to closed roads and stuck vehicles.

According to local media, authorities rescued 36 people on Tuesday, whose bus had been stuck in heavy snow.

Local media reported that the passengers may have endured freezing temperatures for up to 48 hours, before being rescued.

Denise Canaveri,a passenger, said the group was desperate and had no food.

The temperature in Santiago, Chile dropped to as low as -8.5 degrees Celsius on Wednesday.

Other countries in Latin America such as Uruguay and Argentina have also been affected by the cold front.

The AP has even picked up on the story link. The last paragraph caught my attention though:
