    Not that risky looking comparing the pocket depths of VW vs. Citroen or in this case, Honda vs. KTM. :deal

    I can't imagine that. RB headquarters are like an hour from KTM. I always thought the Despres deal was made between Mateschitz and Pierer.

    Red Bull is already on board. They were on board with the Vee Dub Dakar program and they were on board with the Vee Dub Baja Trophy Truck program.

    From a very reliable, but unnamed source that has yet to be incorrect.

    Niel! WOW! I just arrived in Cuzco to get the news on your leg! Sorry I didn't call you yesterday, but I see you were otherwise occupied ! :roflSorry.... that was un-called for! :wink:

    YES on the Nazca bivoac pass! I have one rider who will pay! :clap:clap
    pm me. Still want to meet up Jan 4th if possible.

    HEY! I have a free full backseat in a 2012 Hilux completely un-occupied Jan 5, 6, and 7, but you'd have to find your way back from Nazca!

    Cheers! :freaky Toby

    Evening all, I'm not trying to hijack this thread but have a quick statement and question. Finding out who's providing Dakar TV coverage here in the USA is next to impossible yet again this year. Will someone let me know the details(please).

    :huh

    That's huge. I thought Cyril is in the middle of a two-year contract though, expiring sometime in mid 2014?

    edit: Sorry just saw that it expires in November of '13. Still, not much time to prepare to ride '14 in red...?

    He did sign for 2 year's, just over a year ago, both of them - haven't heard this one; knew about many other things through the year, but this one is not from left field, but from another planet, but where else for an Alien :lol3:lol3

    Hey, but who knows :spam or :topes or just
