    next breed of Aliens for KTM?

    Maybe they got wind of Cyril wanting to defect this year and are throwing a spanner in his gearbox, or maybe that's just one conspiracy theory too far

    Another rider lost his life, I was hoping we would not have this happening again but Dakar is a cruel mistress, may his family find the courage to move on, I don't know if I could, so young with so much that would be ahead of him all stopped in a moment.. :cry

    PS: Neil amazing gmap-fu as usual, don't care about your post count, with posts like this you are a true F5 alien in my book.

    You gotta wonder.

    If he gave notice, or even was just making strong noises, well then now would be a great time for the team to figure out who they want to fill the shoes.

    Let loose the dogs, and see who you like.

    Just a thought... Maybe cyrils bike is jetted for where they are waded, not where they Are. Maybe a way to make bike work well in final k's up high where everyone else will struggle?

    You know another reason could be the altitude...It feels like you are drunk trying to concentrate at that altitude. Sometimes you have to stop for a few minutes just to catch your breath. You see stars if you engage in any kind of heavy activity.
