    Awesome, glad to see Don is taking another crack at the Dakar, also I'm a big fan of Si's. I'll be watching the Dakar with renewed interest.

    T-shirts, race replica gear........I'm in!

    Well someone beat me to posting that!

    Sorry for neglecting the post, the business level has been off the charts helping to prep for this years race!

    The riding kit thing, we are thinking of replica race shirts, printed and/or whole sets of off-road kit if you so desire.

    And/or enduro jackets as well?

    For those of you craving some Dakar photo's go here - www.simonpavey.com/galleries

    Some detailed statics of simon's bike there, all images and video by me :evil

    +1 on the t-shirt (not as keen on the replica stuff)

    Anyone know why his son wasn't allowed in? age? experience?

    Some great videos and photos, thanks. :thumb

    What's behind the decision to use Ohlins rather than WP suspension? I thought WP would have been the logical choice given its popularity and the potential for borrowing parts from other teams if needed.

    BTW good luck to Simon, I hope he does better than ever.
