    I tweeted nationalities yesterday, 37 countries represented with France still leading the way with 25 entrants. Argentina is next with 19 and I believe it was 17 from the Netherlands.

    For the bike count, I went with 90 KTM's since the Pavey family is listed riding brand "...." when I believe they are both on KTM's this year. Even Javier Pizzolito is on a .... I think it's a special consolation bike from HRC which slots in between the full HRC unobtanium and the Honda Argentina customer version.

    Oh c'mon Mad Cow... :lol3 don't come that bit... :wink: Like when the Chinese put Whang Chung stickers on XR 400's one year... (then some WR 450's... and then a KTM 450 RR another time) and called them their "own"... :evil


    Mind you... ASO did make John jump through hoops to get the LC4-50 kit approved... so it's probably only right that they do mark the precedent! :D

    Good news today from Eurosport Player, I've just had an email from them offering me a free one month's subscription if I take part in a survey.

    As I usually sign up for only one month of the year anyway and the survey took me all of 30 seconds to complete, that's my Dakar coverage sorted for 2015.....

    Or I could watch the snooker :2cry

    Harsh Troy ;o) We did actually re-engineer the internal parts of the LC4 engine you know!

    But yes, I agree the rest is pretty much a KTM 690 - albeit covered in Rally Raid Products' own tanks, fairing, tower and other race parts...

    Oh, and I just heard from John - the Rally Raid Products LC4-50 has passed scrutineering - we are good to go!!!
