    Some interesting quotes from Pit on the Dakar (from speedweek.com)


    Cyril hat als fünffacher Dakar-Sieger aber dann von uns zu viel gefordert. Wir sollten die anderen Fahrer vernachlässigen und ihn zur klaren Nr. 1 machen, er hat auch sehr viel mehr Geld gefordert. Wir haben also entschieden, auf diesen internen Psychokrieg zu verzichten und ganz auf Marc Coma zu setzen. Wir haben das ganze Team für ihn arbeiten lassen.

    Cyril wanted us to neglect the other riders and be No 1, and he wanted a lot more money too.
    So we decided forego the internal fighting and back Marc Coma We made
    the whole team work for him

    Dieses Konzept hat sich aber bewährt. Wir hatten im Team eine super Stimmung. Weil wir keinen internen Kampf hatten, gab es eine bessere Atmosphäre als je zuvor.
    This approach was a success. We had a great team spirit. because we did'nt fight internally we had a better atmosphere than ever before

    Wir werden aber sicher einen jungen Fahrer dazu holen im Laufe dieses Jahres.
    Der Plan ist klar: Wir werden 2015 noch einmal mit Marc Coma als einzige KTM-Speerspitze in die Dakar marschieren.

    We will hire another young rider during the coming year. But our plan is clear: In 2015 we will go into Dakar with Marc Comaas our sole No 1 rider

    Kommt KTM mit der neuen Zweitmarke Husqvarna nächstes Jahr mit einem eigenen Werksteam zur Dakar-Rallye?

    Das ist absolut noch nicht fix. Dieser Plan steht noch nicht. Wir müssen in Ruhe überlegen, was wir auf der Husqvarna-Seite machen. Fix ist nur, dass wir 2015 mit einem fünfköpfigen KTM-Werksteam in die Rallye starten.
    Du kannst ja Cyril Despres wieder zurückholen und ihm als Nr. 1 bei Husqvarna alle Wünsche erfüllen.

    Ähhh... Dafür ist die Husqvarna zu schade.


    Q: will Husquarna field a factory team in next years Dakar?
    No decision made yet. We have to carefully think about what we do with Husquarna. All we know now is that we will be competing with a five rider strong KTM factory team in the 2015 Dakar


    Q:You could get Cyril back and spoil him as No 1 at Husquarna


    Ahm- Husquarna is not desperate enough do do that.....

    Okay, I have never watched a 1:44:00 vid before, LOL. Can't believe how many people are out in the sticks lined on the side of the road to watch.

    Wife thought he was honking his horn when the speed limit warning came on. :-)

    I just watched the whole first clip - can you call a nearly 2 hour long film still a clip? :evil

    Anyway, I enjoyed it and am going to watch the others as well. :D

    Same here. Wifey wanted to know why I hadn't come to bed an hour &l a half after her. I'm still in my recliner with the iPad in my lap. I think she thought I was watching porn since I had the columns turned down. :rofl

    Try & watch the next segment without doing anything else but riding along. No breaks, no drinking a glass of anything hunker down & see. I was personally surprised @ how difficult that was to do.:clap:clap. Can't really imagine that for 13 days STRAIGHT

    Did anyone else think how we, at the same time of the video, were watching numbers on Mischa's site and drawing conclusions? We tend to forget that most of us wouldn't last a day on this race, let alone 14 in a row.. These guys are superhuman, what a Herculean effort, I am in awe... :clap:clap

    Once again MyWay, thank you for ruining my life, now stop it, it's not even funny anymore, it's almost February... :deal

    I love Bianchi Prata videos, and now at last he is releasing the full versions not just time lapse versions. :clap :clap :clap

    No doubt about it, its hard to concentrate for as long as these guys do.



    A very interesting and amusing interview. :lol3 Thanks for that!

    It also confirms some of our suspicions that Cyril really is a pendejo after all.... :deal

    I forgot I was subscribed to the tube videos from Prata. Man those are cool.
    I'd need to have Depends sponsorship though. I nearly soiled my boxers watching on the big screen. :lol3

    Well I started with Etapa 3a (looks like its just the first part of SS 3, before the mountains).

    23:30 #133 Toomas Triisa Comes flying past as if it were as Sunday afternoon jaunt, and Bianchi was standing still.
    25:02 #69 Hugo Payen also comes flying past.
    38:57 He passes a guy who over shot a corner and likely crashed. Seems okay.

    49:00 He enters a refuel and 13:00 Minutes neutralization.

    Have a look through his channel. He has almost every stage posted from last year. Most are the first 2 hours or so. I used a Firefox plugin to download in case they disappear...

    I am sad to hear that but you can do something about it "unsubscribe" this thread and do not enter the bivouac (unsubscribe) to be productive.
