Desafio Ruta 40
 
Nobody talking nothing about the race next week ?
Desafio Ruta 40 belongs to a Dakar series prior to the Dakar.

I believe Michael Stanfield of Freedom Rally Racing, Kansas City, Missouri is entered. :clap

Certainly a few things to come out of it and the provisional entry list -

Can Coma continue with 4 out of 4?

Will Speedy be there as the no. 2 in the championship race, as he is entered under Speedbrain. HRC were previously only sending Helder, with Javier already being there? What bikes will they be on with Helder going?

Will Cyril be there, we know Casselli won't as he got injured in the Baja 500?

I can't confirm it, but it sounds like Kurt might be there. - I read that his wrist injury was not that bad and Patty Moore Blais just wished him "Good luck in Argentina" on his FB page a few hours ago.

I've been seeing conflicting reports on Caselli's wrist injury too. His post Baja 500 report didn't seem to indicate that the injury was as bad as first reported -

The official site was updated yesterday with entries listed as closed - http://www.desafioruta40.com.ar/wp-c...-DR40-2013.pdf , however I seem to recall seeing today that Chilean rider Daniel Gouet would be on a KTM. Should be fun to keep an eye on :clap

Chavo gets a new bike for this one as he moves from Jolly Racing to an opportunity that opened up with Speedbrain. It's a 480cc kit so he will still be contesting the over 450 class in which he leads the championship standings. He tested it after Abu Dhabi and said it is world's apart from his other bikes as far as maturity in development.

They should be running. No timings up on the site yet though. Looks like the liaison of 97.53km kicked off at 06:30 with the first bike (Coma) starting the 371.98km stage at 08:15. Still waiting for the official timing links to kick in.

Going to stick this one for the week since a couple of inmates are involved.

Saw Kurt Caselli #6 in the vid, so I guess his wrist is not so bad after Baja 500 crash.

ArthDuro 06-17-2013 07:43 AM

yeah Kurt posted a while that we was there, I wasn't sure if he was riding though.
