It will be a very interesting year, wish I was there....
for 2013 Dakar there will be the strongest field of Aussies ever with at least 4 guys who are regular winners or podium placers at the Safari and other desert races in Aust.
Ben just pulled off 10th outright & 5th in E2 this weekend at the A4DE (Australia's ISDE) just taking it easy in his first race since April, so his form is looking good, and he says he feels good and strong.
With 3 Safari wins, 3 Finke desert race wins, 3 Hattah desert race wins, 3 Condo 750 rally wins, ISDE E1 win, multiple national enduro, longtrack and supermotard titles to his credit...........Ben is Australia's top desert/rally racer
In addition to Ben Grabham there is also
- Rod Faggotter with the EU Yamaha team
- Matt Fish Husky Speedbrain
- GHR Honda withTodd or Jacob Smith ?? not sure which one
