    Luis Belaustegui #150, a 48 year-old professor from the University of Missouri-Kansas City Living the Dakar Dream, campaigned and finished on a KTM 150XC 2-stroke! :clap

    Wow, that is just phenomenal! Way to go luisbelaustegui! I have so many questions...

    Wouldn't fuel consumption be an issue compared to a four stroke?

    Does the 150 have enough power? (it obviously does, it finished!)

    That is just awesome! I love hearing these success stories, especially when it's someone that clearly doesn't want to follow what the rest of the herd are doing. I'm not too far from UMKC, maybe I need to drop in an buy him a beer!
