    Ok, a little news.

    I'm working hard to get the bike details finalized. I want the bikes in hand before announcing what I'm riding.

    Details of the support package and benefit auction to come soon.

    Confirmed today:

    I'll have the best suspension components available courtesy of Ohlins USA. There will be a Ohlins discount offered in the support package.

    Coming soon, an ongoing column in Eastern Dirt Magazine covering the journey to Dakar.

    Bill, I think you are a perfect candidate for the Dakar. It will be a little different than the Sandblast:clap Congrats on the entry.
