There have been a lot of FB updates from Laurent Lazard who is on Casteu's team and also from Tina Meier (riding with Sherco as well). While I'm not fluent in Espanol or Deutsch, I can muddle through to get the gist of their posts. None really mentioned David specifically, but in that regard, no news is good news so I suppose things are moving along as normal for Casteu.

Lazard does have a spiffy new haircut though.

A huge thanks to everyone for all the coverage of the ups and downs of scrutineering. The good thing is that it seems to be mostly ups save for some tires stuck in customs, flat batteries, and twisted ankles.

Modern technology is really making this into a two to three week information technology overload.

Between twitter feeds, facebook updates, blogs, rider's personal pages, and this forum, it's a wonder if anyone can take it all in. That said, keep it coming. Each year it feels more and more like us virtual rallyistas are actually there.

Of course, it has changed a lot, but I think it’s wonderful to see so many participants present even though things aren’t going too well in the world”. Today, his goal is to help Cody to become a genuine Dakar rider, capable of battling for victory in the years to come. “Quinn is a very mature rider. It’s about time he got stuck into the Dakar. We’re here to help him gain experience. Finishing will already be a success for him. My strategy is to tell him that he won’t win his first Dakar”. But will Campbell clamber back onto a bike to try his luck? “I’ve had several opportunities to make a comeback, but today I just don’t have the desire to battle for victory. I’m happy to be training Quinn and looking after my team. That’s where my future lies…”

Its great photo thats for sure. But if you look at the helicopter in the photo you will see that the angle it was taken on makes that slope look at lot steeper.

Not much yet on David Casteau nothing of interest on his FB page either. But he is in allright.


Translated from this french article:

Earlier this year, during the first two stages of the "Dakar" in South America, Sherco, known for its machines enduro and trial, marked the publication of a white stone, occupying the top overall . Then, late in the season David Casteu won the title of World Champion Rally off-road 450cc class, after a particularly tough season.

On the "Dakar" which will run from 1 to 16 January 2011, David Casteu and Uruguayan Laurent Lazard but also the German and Belgian Tampax Meier will all be equipped Sherco, slightly different from each other ... The team will attempt to complete the South American campaign against a formidable adversity ....




I rode with Laurent's (on the left in the picture) team in Brazil. He is great guy, and good rider who is passionate about Dakar and looking to step up his game.
