A few names I've read would be foolish choices at the level of this program and what's needed.
I'd suggest Aussie Jake Smith.
Fit and ready, good navigator, knows Hondas, been to Dakar before, pissed he didn't get the GHR ride at Dakar.
Have heard a little whisper the Jake Smith will ride at Dakar to fill in for Sam.
Looks like they will be taking five riders ?
