It would be a rewarding challenge to get HRC onto the top step at Dakar.
Think not only of what KTM has done for him, but what he and Coma have done for KTM.
Lol! Speculation is a wonderful thing. There must be
many facets to this news......
Despres or Coma's careers would have gone anywhere
(in Rally Raid circles anyway) without the integral mentorship, sponsorhip and team structure of the KTM rally effort over the last 10 years... They were both brought early in as waterboys, and groomed to be champions... thanks in no small measure to people like messrs Kinigadner, Trunkenpolz, Arcarons and later the long term continued corporate support of Pierer and Mateschitz (at the KTM/RedBull level).
