    There are a lot of parts the same as on the Malle Moto bike of Jurgen van den Goorbergh.

    Woodzrider,

    USA rider Ricky Brabeck on the HRC Honda team for sure. Maybe more but I have not searched the rider list on the Dakar website.

    For coverage check out RedBull TV online and on a Apple TV. It’s free and they cover each day. And of course go on YouTube to check out Races To Places for Lyndon’s Coverage while he rides Malle Moto class.

    I bet he's happy he did that testing rather than during a special! Better to cop the bad luck now and get it out of the way...

    Besides sleeping in my height tent and the intensive altitude training on the bike there is a third acclimatization form and that is the passive altitude training. This means simply / globally with the mask in hand, 5 minutes on, 5 minutes off and that the last weeks every day for an hour.
