    On the updated start list we see a 45 minute start time gap between no 10 and no 11.

    There was a HRC video posted earlier, in which Ceci mentioned they'd swap the engine either from his or from Metges (at least I think that's the name he says?) bike.

    HRC - Still battling to make a strong enough F1 engine and figuring out how to run a Dakar team. HRC PR Management have been fast a sleep for to long. HRC by been exclusive they lost the market share to KTM who are inclusive.

    KTM : “At the moment two things are existing regarding the MotoGP project – the decision to go into MotoGP and the decision to create the successor to the RC8,” explains Thomas Kuttruf, KTM’s Worldwide PR Manager. “This is the real intention, it is not about ‘we must compete in MotoGP’ it is the fact we are on the way to becoming the world’s leading sports cycle manufacturer.”

    My fear is that whoever finally wins this race, will be constantly pestered with suggestions that this 'Wasn't a REAL Dakar...'

    That would be very sad.
