    By the way, during this weekend, Laia is competing in the World Enduro Championship, and not on a Gas Gas... a KTM on loan I read on FB.... what's happened? (of course she won anyway yesterday:D)

    Well, his manager has been swanning about enjoying Australia for the Dakar road-show presentations. Maybe not focussing on keeping the inmates informed. Shame on him.:lol3
    Pilbara and I tried several times to get a hint from him, but no go - even the wine didn't seem to help. I figured the colour of his socks would be a clue but he wore long leg jeans and I couldn't get to see his socks. He wouldn't let me see, so I suspect that's where the secret is.:lol3

    spoke to Paulo Concalves ( Speedbrain Rally Team ) at the start line from the Baja 300 in Germany, 2 days ago, his tip was for 98% that cyril will wear blu socks in the near future :-)

    I personally met Cyril a couple of weeks ago in Sardinia for an event and speaking with him he has still not signed anything and evaluating multiple choices. Furthermore even if he confirmed he won't be racing for Ktm next Dakar he is still under contract terms so for now he can't get on any other bike so probably we will have to wait a bit to see hime racing. My guess is Yamaha France! With Cyril's drastic change next Dakar will be really entertaining to watch!

    I think Despres should be Manuel's water carrier and work his way up.

    Solomoto (and I have confirmed) reported Barreda's signing with big red and in the same article, they speculate Laia Sanz will also join the HRC team with Marc Guasch as her water carrier with Jordi Viladoms backfilling a Gas Gas seat.
