At last years Dakar the BF camp looked very, very, very low budget compared to KTM. Sadly a part of the race is money so unless BF is putting a much larger effort into it I dont foresee them being competitve with KTM. Just my two cents. But who knows, maybe with them hiring new riders and the bike development they intend to throw mega $'s at the race..time will tell.
