    Hmmm - Ica Desert in October, interesting, I wonder if it will pull from Morroco and Phaorons?

    They already compete with different organisations, is the ASO now taking on the FIM event :evil

    If the bikes do go to Peru then Would they stay for the Dakar also, it's a long round trip for the Europeans so close to January, so maybe just an event for the South Americans?

    Too Old,

    Actually, if they are contending for the Dakar Series they have to run the Ruta 40 in Argentina the month before as each only counts as a 1/2 event.

    Come ride with me to spectate the 'Desafio Inca' in October! It is a 1-week all-included trip that takes in the race on motos:
