No on both counts

for Dakar 2012 ASO has said for the last couple of years that ALL moto riders will be 450cc max..................but be interested to see if they are having 2nd thoughts about this for the non-elite guys though

for 2011 FIM championship rallies FIM are about to let all know that only the 450cc class will be world championship status, if you ride a open class bike you can still ride in these events but only for the event class category placings not for points in a world championship series of any kind.

So yes that now makes FIM CCWC and Dakar 450cc only

Expect FIM announcement soon

but still lots of other rallies for open class bikes
