    I doubt he'll even notice. He'll get on a running bike in the morning, start it twice at gas stops during the stage, and hand it off. Not like he stalls and struggles with the rest of us!

    Win bonuses usually come from an insurance policy, once we find out where he lands, it would be fascinating to see how the statisticians lay out the odds! 1 million euro win bonus for Cyril on KTM? Probably almost 1 million Euro for the policy. 1 million win bonus on YZ? I'd sell that policy at a decent discount, myself... :deal

    Cyrils odds get longer when he is on anything else than the KTM squad IMHO.

    They made him, he's not superman and without the KrypToMite armour in his corner as part of the Mattighofen machine... then he becomes another beatable bike/rider combination... not the "next level" equation that he and Coma have been the last five or six years or so... It will be a very "open book" Dakar come next january.

    Not holding my breath to see if the 70 degree engine ever re-appears, but I'm keeping my '11 FE390, love that thing.

    It's back to KTM and a HuskyKato lineup. Since they are both from the same company now, wonder if Husky will even be in the Dakar?

    It will be an interesting Dakar 2014 with more uncertainty no doubt!

    I miss so much the 70 degree model, loved riding that bike since it came out in 2009!!!

    Ps. I think there is also Botturi that could be fighting for the podium next year (this year he was running in 4th until he messed up). My guess is that he could go back with Speedbrain. At the moment he is on a standard privateer Yamaha

    You mean a 450RR painted red and white?

    Now there is a left-field suggestion!
