And they only started building the bike 25 days prior to the start of the race!


Quite impressive for a first time run.

Hi, I'm looking for help to fix my MD roadbook. I noticed that one of the wires going to the electric motor has come out. How do you take one of these apart? To take the motor off requires the removal of 3 screws, which are inside the roadbook and in-accessable. I've taken the hex screw from the bottom roller out. (had to drill a small hole to work through) but cannot remove this roller. Anytips? Does the plastic lug at the end have to be removed? If so how?

Argentina & Chile for one more year.......................because

1) the $$$$ the 2 governments are prepared to throw at ASO to keep the event there

2) also the need for more time to get a secure route and various government agreements in place for a north africa rallye Tunisia - Libya - Egypt etc

+1 for SafariBerg's theory...

As Garry is aware, government's/organisations like "three year plans"...

1. Create the program (get the teething problems over with and establish the "new" endeavour). 2009... check!

2. Build upon the success of the initial investment... realise the viability of the program and conduct a great event. 2010... check!

3. Capitalise on the investment, infrastructure and promotion of the previous two years to reap the full commercial potential (return on investment) in year three... 2011...???

For 2011 ASO have a two nations and govenment bodies that WANT to host DAKAR in South America; that have both demonstrated their ability to support the event in immaculate standard... in the meantime ASO can use the next 12 months in a calm and calculated manner to weigh up the other options 2012 and forward, to negotiate the best deal, the logistics and THEN return to Africa (whether it's Egypt/Libya/Tunisia or the Sahara)... or wherever ELSE in the world they might be considering, all with the comfort of knowing they can make the announcement in good time, not a "last minute" decision.

Argentina/Chile for DAKAR 2011 makes good commercial sense I reckon... and ASO is a business.

Yeah the China connection sometime not too far into the future makes a lot of sense

Again a lot of commercial dollars to be made by Chinese companies increasing global exposure and seeking credibility, its already happening in trickles, couple of more years it will be a flood, bit like the Japanese at Dakar in the '80's when the home economy was booming.

The big determiner will be the domestic political stability at the regional level where the event could take place.

Yep.....but I think if it came down to local political stability the Chineese government would just make it stable if you get my drift.
