Sardinia Rally Race 2014

Only five days... as usual no entry list so far, but should be quite impressive judging from the latest press release:

Sardegna Rally Race has always been a Rally with “something” more. The only one in Europe worthy of being a Cross-Country Rally World Championship date. The only one solely dedicated to Motorbikes. SRR is the safest because of his intrinsic technical and geographical features. Exclusive specifications combines with other uniquenesses. Sardegna Rally Race has always been the only Rally of the World Championship that is able to gather the Best Aces of the Specialty, the only Rally who called up the myths of the legend: e.g. Stephane Peterhansel, exclusively for two editions of Sardegna Rally Race. Records have to be achieved in order to be defeated, and myths have to be strenghtened.

These are nowadays myths who have responded to the call of the great challenge invented by Antonello Chiara and Gianrenzo Bazzu. Joan Barreda, Paulo Gonçalves, Helder Rodrigues, all toghether with the Honda HRC “army”. Marc Coma, Jordi Viladoms, Ruben Faria, the “officers” of the holder Brand, KTM. And then Gerard Farres for Gas Gas, Olivier Pain and Michael Metge for Yamaha, Joan Pedrero for Sherco. Alessandro Botturi for Husqvarna, Juan Carlos Salvatierra for Speedbrain. Other World Champions. Camelia Liparoti with a Yamaha quad like the one driven by the actual Championship leader Rafal Sonik. More. Graziani against Mancini, Beta, the best Italian riders once again in competition with riders coming from Bolivia, Belgium, Japan, Russia, Qatar, Turkey, Austria, Slovakia and from the Netherlands. Everyone is joining Sardegna Rally Race to compete with major national teams of Italy, France, Portugal and Spain. "Bigs" and Amateurs from all over the World also will meet in Sardegna: a few will compete for the most desired trophy of the World Championship, many will enjoy the opportunity offered by the Sardegna Rally Race.

myself and Phil Gunn(Gunner) are in Alghero for 4 days doing the outriding for WRC-TV until sunday with the car rally, then we are going over to follow the bike rally.
We have Chris Cork's bike & kit in our van which we brought over for him from the UK, as he will be riding in the Rally.
We have recieved our first official rental customer for Dakar 2015 on our new KTM LC4-50 bike, it is Swedish rider Tony Landh, who was riding with us earlier in the year at Tuareg Rally.
So when we get back to the UK we will be sending his LC4-50 over to Sweden for him to test during the summer on some of the swedish forest rallies.
Check out our new website for the LC4=50

Say Hello to Corky for me John.

Did this Rally last year and loved it. Hopefully do it again next year.

Great news on Tony Landh joining you on the LC4-450 for Dakar.

I can't figure Barreda's tactics - he won the prologue, I assume could chose his start position, started 4th and is now 2 1/2 mins down. Maybe is was a conscious choice with the difficult overtaking there, but it didn't do Coma any harm starting from 11th - let's see how today unfolds?

Maybe BamBam was not too keen on the idea of leading out, given the tighter terrain, greater number of notes/instructions and the general intensity of the navigation/roadbook side of things? By starting on pos 4. at least he had a few others to follow? looks like the others just did a better job on nailing the ICO/route instructions.

Coma on the other hand had more "hares" out the front and his own roadbook skill/navigation is usually pretty much impeccable.

Barreda seems as though he is not too comfortable on this bike or this rally. His word was "dangerous".

Dangerous? Does that mean (in barreda speak) = too much time with the head down/reading, while the throttle stop is on WFO (BamBam style) ?


One of the trademarks of the Sardinia Rally has always been the frequency and intensity of the roadbook navigation, and the more enduro-like/technical nature of the terrain. It's not a "desert rally" in the classic sense of the word... neither the nature of the course, nor the bikes that are suited to it.

In that respect, I always thought it a bit of an oddity when compared to the other event's on the FIM CCR championship calender.

It would be similar to the situation if they had one of the FIA F1 races on an old antiquated pre-WWII circuit from the 30's...


oh, hang on... they have Monaco in the F1 calender still, don't they...?!

I guess the navigation plays an important role as TSC said... Terrain suits enduro bikes more, that's why all the teams arrived with their ''enduro'' versions and not the beasts. Except Catanese of course
