    it is about the Dakar and the competition for Honda, Ben Grabham is also riding a KTM this year at Dakar and although his first and getting over a horrific accident at Condo he could still place well. Matt Fish did well in Maroc and Ben has consistently shown to be quicker.

    It will be a very interesting year, wish I was there....

    Cheers

    Ben just pulled off 10th outright & 5th in E2 this weekend at the A4DE (Australia's ISDE) just taking it easy in his first race since April, so his form is looking good, and he says he feels good and strong.

    Awesome!

    Quinn is my dark horse for stage wins... and what a style on the bike! Never get tired of watching him hang it all out on that segment before the huge ass-over-end crash last year ... he's the closest you can get to a Robby Gordon of the bikers

    :clap

    Not sure if they have, I just don't think the Dakar was part of the KTM package in the USA :deal
