Should be fairly reliable they are still using Yamaha 450 motors....
I guess that basically depends on how much volume can JVO handle (supposing that they build the kit they have developed).
I'm with Brodo. Reseeding doesn't apply only to DNF's. Elite riders who spent 4 or 5 more hours than the average of their "speed group", fought the whole day to drag the bloody Sherco stuck in 2nd gear or finished the stage with a truck battery on their lap because the stator gone south. They may still be fighting for a top 10 or even top 5, despite having lost 4 or 5 hours in a stage. Letting them start the next day from the 100th position doesn't make much sense from a security point of view. IMHO.
Re-seeding happens how many times in a rally? I can't remember that many for the subject to be discussed as a blatant injustice ? The ones I remember weren't that polemic (Jonah?). They are not altering the classification chart, they are just releasing fast riders on the course. Maybe I see it this way because I always imagine rallye stages in fast open ground where overtaking is possible, though always dangerous because of dust.
There's so much involved in rallying that I don't believe reseeding creates any sensible unbalance or unfair advantage either for the ones being reseeded or for the ones getting the reseeded to enter the stage before them. If I would be fighting for 17th place I wouldn't care less if I would enter the track in 16th vs 17th . As I never done it this opinion is worth shit, but anyway...
Come on Vander... when we think GasGas we think:

She won the poker this year...

That gas gas just may be the first true privateer bike
I guess it's what everyone is hoping the crf project to be...
She is awesomely talented !
I'd say there is a little bit of talent and a shitload of hard and consistent training involved, just like any sport that's mostly skill dependent.
If the Gas Gas is readily available at that price (Öhlins Suspension fore and aft... as standard spec. !) and Honda did make a CRF 450 Rally version kit available (at a realistic price)... then get ready watch the "formula 450" thing go viral!
KTM would have to respond (as one would imagine Husky also) with a customer spec. version at a market pricetag.
The maybe (just maybe) we could expect to see "production" versions in dealerships by 2015...? (okay F5'ers reume pipedreaming sequence )
All we need now is a little 450 twin
Whoever said "Two heads are better than one" eh...?
Obviously had no hands on experience with Aprilia's or Richard Cranium's...
A problem with reseeding team riders back towards the front is that they become waterboys for their team and that by being close by if a problem occurs and they supply a wheel or whatever, then they have just changed the outcome of the rally. If they dnf, put them at the back and let them earn the right to be back up the front !! or better still if they dnf, then park them up. Rules should be the same for all entries.
