    Sorry to hear the news.

    Talk to Dave, there is a little 2,000 mile rally called the Sertoes in August that will be a great replacement.

    RMS has room for one more rider to join us. We have a great group going, including Charlie (lastplace), Sid, Dirk, and Jean-Luc.

    We have all the shipping (to/from Oakland, CA) and logistics worked out. We also have a sponsor for the team, which is making this an even more affordable proposition.

    If you are interested, please contact me.

    Cheers,
    Dave

    The Swedes will be there again, 10-12 riders something, with some really good and talented riders. Calle Hagenblad, 2:nd in 2011, will for sure aim for the podium again.

    My brother Åmme and myself will not make the Tuareg in 2013 as we are heading for Rally Mongolia in August.

    I'm going to throw my hat into the ring too... all being well with the new race bike, this should be the first 'shake-down' event we compete in next season...

    I'll be going with Torque Racing Services (Martin Wittering & Donna Gray) from the UK who are providing support and assistance - they already have a number of riders going, but can always accommodate others who are looking for a comprehensive support package - plus there is currently a special offer of training and pre-event 'scrutineering' should you require any further incentive!

    Our friend ktmJOE's bike is already in Europe and he's racing with Torque as well, then shipping home in the RMS container.

    Hee hee - let's get all the hoo-ha of Dakar 2013 out of the way, then hopefully I will have a project to keep you all entertained right up until (and including) Dakar 2014...

    The details are coming together over the next few weeks, and all being well - I will be able to launch the new campaign right after the finish of Dakar in January... I think it is really going to appeal to everyone here on ADV, for so many reasons!

    Sorry to sound so cryptic, but we don't want to get ahead of ourselves until the new bike is up and running...
