Sure have! will put some up later on, just got in to the hotel after a night out in the desert at a Berber camp.. been a fantastic week so far, great tracks laid down by Jonny Maroc and we used his bikes, which have been nothing short of faultless.

Feeling very happy back on the bike again after not riding since October.

Bring on Touareg!!

Just in...

Quote:
We are ready to start.

Information about the route, participants and more details are actualised and *can be found at www.tuareg-rallye.com. The virgin forest and the labyrinth will be new parts of this years track. Longer tracks in the south of morocco will be an additional challenge.

We have 22 Nations represented by 200 vehicles in competition. These numbers show that the Tuareg Rallye is now one of the most established Desert Rallyes. 2500 Kilometres including 500 kilometres of dunes are part of this year’s Tuareg Rallye itinerary. Several international teams will take on this challenge
In the profi motorcycle group, the title of the favourite is still open. Thorsten Kaiser, three times winner of the Tuareg Rallye will be modest at the start but he will support his team. The possibility of Martin Fontyn (Team chief of EAO) raising his previous podium finish to first position cannot be dismissed. It will be an interesting battle. Team Energia e Sorrisi, Team Roadstar, *Team Härtel *and Memotours which provided also last year’s top drivers, is back in the race with several top drivers. Many members of this team have already been seen in the leading field on last year’s Tuareg Rallye.
In the motorcycle amateur group, taking part will be more important than winning. Experienced riders from last year as for Example Frank Allgaier or *Raffele Bacchi know that precise navigation is far more important than an open throttle.

With more than 50 vehicles in the 4x4 group, the level of competition for the Tuareg Rallye has been set. Christoph Danner, several times winner of the Tuareg Rallye, will have to fight hard against massive competition. Maxtraction *and Race 2 Recovery, two teams preparing for the Dakar will be seen at the start of the Tuareg Rallye. But this is not all… The German French Team lead by Malte Asmus, have collect experience last year and will also be good for a surprise. And don’t forget Team 4x4 Service *from Kachachstan, or Team Bowlerspirit from UK.

In the 4x4 amateur group, the familiar array of enthusiastic desert racers in budget race cars has not changed. The father & son team Dominique and Reiner Kleer or Arne Dolle with Codriver Bianca * *Seekles will on one hand provide good competition, but also demonstrate the unique camaraderie found amidst the competition and the social elements of the Tuareg Rallye. Whether out on the race tracks or back in the paddock, the friendly cooperation found between all participants of the Rallye is something to be proud of.

The Tuareg Rallye Organisation is very well respected as a professional, experienced and effective unit providing good security for all Rallye participants with up to nine known and hidden checkpoints. seven medical teams under the leadership of Dr. Oliver Zorn and supplemented by the ORMS medical service, will ensure fast response time and top-class medical service provision. Two M.A.N Kat1 recovery trucks and several pickups will bring broken-down vehicles safely back to the night’s camp. Hopefully, they’ll just be returning with exhausted recovery truck passengers.
This year will will have first time a livereporting direct from morocco. Internett access have been tested during the preetour.
See you in Almeria

Rainer

Sweet pics!

I wish I could give you advice but I as this is my first attempt at the Tuareg, I cant give you any...

We just got in the start numbers, Im currently listed as # 61. A friend of mine on a similar Aprilia (ex Erik Kofman dakar bike) is listed as # 83.

For all the American followers, Brent Teixeira is on the EAOB team as well, he has start number # 112 !

2 weeks to go before shipping and I am still awaiting my engine... Shells and a new 3rd gear should be in today, meaning I can collect the motor before the weekend and put her back in Friday night. Then off to my favourite bike builder (behego.com) to mount all the extra bits and pieces... Close call... Getting really close...

Martin Fontyn from EAOB just forwarded them to us last night, I guess the 'service team owners' have received the info from Rainer during the weekend.

On a side note, you did get the emails from Rainer with the links to the GPS files?
