I saw a tweet today suggesting that HRC felt 'the [Dakar Team] structure was too young' to absorb new riders at this late stage...

Makes sense really, riding an unfamiliar and unproven bike at anything like race pace is going to be tricky for anyone - it would be a hell of a gamble on both the side of the rider and the team? - Noone wants to see a failure or an accident.
