    IMHO, yes. I put 35,000miles on a Rekluse in my KTM990 (LC8 engine), 9,000 miles with a Rekluse in my Aprilia RXV550 and 2,000 brutal miles so far on my FE390 with EXP. The new EXP is very rugged.

    I think strategy will be dictated by relative positions. If you're alone at the front, change an engine to lessen risk. If its all super close, don't give up the 15 minutes.

    Team update.

    Kevin fractured his L2 vertebrae but is doing fine. He is on his way to Lima, but I was able to talk to him at the medical tent. It was on a steep dune drop (!!!). Paul Jay, other UK rider also crashed in same spot and is out with dislocated shoulder.

    Marco and Mateo are kicking butt. Bikes are in very good shape.

    Luis had problems yesterday with new carb. Swapped to old one last night. But he still out in the course and rumored to have seized the motor. We're standing by to replace it tonight.

    Lyndon calls in with the details from Stage 2, a day which saw the first riders put into difficulty on a long, sandy stage. In a war of attrition, Lyndon rode a sensible ride today. Keep it steady, Lyndon, and thanks for the great call!
