    It seems unlikley as there is less than a week between the finish of Pharaons and scrutineering for Morocco and there is no safe way overland other than through Libiya and Algeria,plus the website advises that the bikes will only be available for collection from the port in Alexandria on the 12th :cry

    Unless they have 2nd Dakar prepared bikes :clap:clap

    Now on Aug 1st the Moroccan site said:

    "Officials teams have already confirmed their participation including the KTM official team complete with its two “bosses”: Marc Coma and Cyril Despres and HUSQVARNA RALLY TEAM BY SPEEDBRAIN and these rising stars BARREDA, GONCALVES, PELLICER !"

    The rider list for Morocco should be out on the 8th, so we will know then :clap

    And he seemed to have a bit of a "wobble" towards the end, he was stopped on the track on the tacking, lost some time and missed a cp?:eek1

    Maybe he will twitter why, but its mostly in Spanish - any info out there?

    Barreda is gaining a lot of experience leading stages on various rallies..not easy experience to get. He has the speed and with the lead/nav skill set developing he is likely the number #1 contender to challenge the aliens in January.
