"announcement" is stretching the term a bit...
It's cyber gossip or a (wll informed?) insider rumour at best at the moment... but like you say - if it is true - this could have severe "bite one in the ass"
ramifications for a solid DAKAR campaign in the coming weeks.
Up till now I had Cyril as #1 tip for the podium (again) this year... Especially with Coma's injury - then subsequent withdrawal.
THIS could be a (major) chink in the armour for CDP's 2013 title quest... I think Tiger Woods called it "taking your eye off the ball..." ?
