    Just realized @CDN Rick wasn't talking about Rally. Or maybe he was. I'm confused with his hipster brands of racing. :dunno

    What I don't understand is that Josep Garcia, Taylor Robert and Kailub Russell are all super fast wherever they go or do. Why is Daniel Sanders stomping them here when he doesn't podium in EnduroGP's

    It's a good question. Eero Remes isn't doing as well as i'd have expected either....
    I think the last two years of AUS racing has done Sanders good...

    He appears to know how to hold a 500 wide open according to this video...

    Who’s providing the KTMs this year? Is Redmoto still supplying Hondas? Does Suzuki Finland still lease bikes...or did that get axed? How aboot Yamaha UK...are they still a player in leasing? (Kaw used to ship their own. Don’t know if they still do.)

    Most riders use their own personal bikes nowadays AFAIK. Often a brand new one that they ship to the grounds for the race.
    All the Canoodian riders shipped a container of bikes there.
    I know a good number of USA riders did the same.
    Not sure if maybe some are renting or their team gives them one...

    When you wanna go fast.....go 4T. :thumb
    Wanna drag your bike up a mountain.....go 2T cause its kinda lighter and so you don't scratch up your real race bike that's a 4T.

    Wow, I didn’t know shipping bikes had made a comeback. That was pretty much dead when I used to follow it.

    Some folks in the Racing section of ADV here have some good info on friends\fam who race in ISDE and all that goes into it. Might be time to step away from the THumpers section and see there is still some good content on this site. :deal :lol3

    I would pay good money to enter a real actual roadbook multi day Rally...
    I think it'd be a blast...
