Today´s announcement:

Franz Verhoeven to be part of the Yamaha Team Europe for 2013 & 2014.

it was funny that Franz himself in twitter announced he was going to make an announcement today, and someone ask him if it was going to be in a Sherco.

His answer: "For sure NOT. Today we announce our plans"

That was me that asked him. Up until very recently, and even currently depending on the translation, Croco Adventures has on their site that Frans is part of their 2013 squad.

I thought Simon Pavey's son, Llewelyn, had been accepted to race the 2013 Dakar, but

Quote:
Upon release of the 2013 Dakar acceptance letters, Llewelyn was one of the unlucky few to be refused a place in the next edition of the race. . . . Left with nothing to aim for until next year Llewelyn quickly began to look for another event to compete in that would gain him further experience and as the Taklimakin Rally is one of a series of Dakar Challenge events it became a target of his attention.
Story on Llewelyn riding the Taklimakin Rally here

edit: I noticed that the winner of the Taklimakan Rally gets to race the Dakar, though the article I saw didn't specify whether it was the 2013 or 2014 edition.


I suppose that a handful of those initially turned down might yet be offered a spot as they become available (as with those in Jenny's situation deciding to not race, or as a rider is lost to tragedy, like with Kemal). So maybe Llewelyn will yet ride the 2013 Dakar.

Here's another article on Grundy & Cummings:

Quote:
On Sunday, after arriving in Windhoek the crews had the day to prep their bikes and make sure everything was in order before having a full day of classroom sessions on navigation.
On Monday morning they left bright and early for White Lady in the Brandberg for a total of 410km.
Each rider had two road books from which to navigate to their destination. After a long day in the seat Brett and Glen reported that they were in one piece and safely settled in at the beautiful guest lodge.

I tend to think the same.
Moreover with Euro crisis still on, some may not find the enought budget, and probable not get to Le Havre, the point is, would it be enought time to let others in?

Some great info from Manuel

http://www.ladakar.com/2012/09/12/tu...pate-to-dakar/

The other route I suspect is to be selected to ride for or with one of the established teams, as they must have a "block booking" which therefore actually reduces the number of available entries - by 50 I would say, I.e. the elite riders - so not the easiest of second routes in
