I don't think JC expects to win the Dakar... but there's a serious Dakar slaying monster resting inside of his helmet that could get unleashed at any moment.
And you can bet Robbie Gordon will create helpful interference any opportunity he can.
I'd want to be on the right side of both of those two.
JC is there to support and assist the HRC team and Helder, that he will do 100%
One thing he will do (machine permitting) is to stay with Helder to the finish - job done
