Thoughts of having one engine last the entire rally have likely changed. Last year several top ten made their engine last the entire race. I don't think (based on f5, france4, etc) it would be feasible this year...
I think the overall route this year has been brilliant. By having those stages early, they're also able to run the whole distance without shortening due to attrition considerations. Doesn't bode well for a subsequent Argentine start, I would think.

So can anyone give me the People magazine version of Casselli? I had never heard his name and now he's in for Coma on KTM, big jump.

Does he post here? Is he a decent enough guy for me to back? Anyone know.

Only a lurker really, but enjoy this F5 ride very much. Also glad to support Lyndon and now Manuel as they both seem to be enjoying it so much.

Thanks for taking me along for the ride.

seems the Husky's are all suffering from "electrical issues" ,they started off strong but have all fallen victim lately.
Doesn't seem to matter how much testing anyone does , the race environment just is harder on bikes.

The cheapest way to ride The Dakar is Malle Moto (on your own, out of the box with no support) but I’ll still need a bike. I contacted ASO and they confirmed there was a place available in the Malle Moto (only 20 places allowed) but would recommend I don’t go this route for my first attempt. I couldn’t stop myself thinking, was it not meant to be, should I just pull out and loose my deposit as I’d missed the deadline to with draw my entry and try again next year? I should also mention that at the same sort of time this was going on Uncle Alec (Uncle Bud) suddenly died, he had a massive influence with my love of bikes and a mentored me through many life situations with his wise words. This was a real low point, a quite week of contemplation, lots of questions and reflecting. I came to the conclusion, I’m not getting any younger, I’m very lucky to have been given a ride and if I’m to learn anything from Uncle Bud’s death/life, is that it’s over before you know it and you only get one shot at it. Live life with No Regrets! I paid the remaining money to ASO (8,400 Euros) to get myself and a bike entered, I’ll work the rest out as we go along.
I now have only 5 weeks to build a Dakar bike and get it to Le Havre….!!!


see it


was he malle moto

He's one of KTM North America's top racers! Mutiple time Hare and Hound Champion, Multiple time Worcs champion, GNCC Pro, a few ISDE gold metals I believe, second in the Baja 1000 this year and the list goes on.

Agreed, I'll miss the argentine eye candy but a start in Bolivia should be on order for next year. Day two, high altitude salt flats. Then off to Peru for the guaranteed to become "classic" Dakar stages. A zig zag over Mtns with a day or two in Fiambla before heading to Copiapo and it's world class terrain. South America....for the first time I'm stoked the rally is there
