    I think because in the regulations there are only 20 ? priority/seeded rider plates issued each year...? #13 is not allocated so Jakes gets #21 and Kevin Benivides (who is priority due to his World Championship ranking) choose to ride with the #47

    Regulations:
    Never had a top10 finish.
    Soultrait
    Dakar record :
    • 2014 : 34e
    • 2015 : 13e
    • 2016 : abandon (10e étape)
    • 2017 : abandon (12e étape)
    Regulation shows 26 riders on (old) list
    G1 class in 2017 after stage 1 shows only G1/17, so 17 elite riders in 2017.

    Only elite must be placed within place 5 overall to take some price money.
    G2 Amature first 3 to get some money.
    Better off as a amature then as a elite.

    Caimi last year had 4 prices.
    8 Overall (trophy) 1 G2 Amature(money+trophy) 1 G2.2 Super production (trophy) 1 first participation challenge (money+trophy). Now, 2018 elite, so only overall possibilities.

    Penalities:
    Where there is a difference, the elite riders and the first 15 overall are mostly punished more in time (twice as hard) then the rest. The rest get often only a financial penalty.

    Apologies if this isn't appropriate (it looks like both races to places threads got banned), just let me know and I'll delete, but I'm pretty excited to see the footage that Lyndon puts out.
