You can download the pdf here: http://www.dakar.com/dakar/2013/us/history.html

Jonah, 6 starts, 3 DNF's
Eric Palante, 9 starts, 5 DNF's

From an overall perspective, I am not sure who has the ultimate most.

What's more impressive are the guys who have been in it for years with no or only single withdrawals, Helder, Cyril, Pal Anders...
Jaap van der Kooij , 17 starts from the top of my head, 17 DNFs....

Trying again in 2013...

He owns a few small chip shops and his friends keep sponsoring him, trouble he has is a lack of base speed to make it through. Plus the fact that he tried 14 times in Africa, which was a totally different ball game alltogether if you ask me.

He has plenty of great stories, including waking up in an egyptian army hospital after getting lost, breaking all his bones, being found, recovered and shipped to that hospital, trouble was that there was misscommunication in the bivouac and nobody was informed where they had flown him to...

I just got a call from JCR to prepare roadbooks for the guys to use to test the new bikes over here in a month or so. Seems they are serious about getting the bugs worked out in some tough terrain while having some good roadbook navigation practice at the same time.

So, for those of you who have ridden the popular Pahrump Loops, it looks like we'll have Helder and the others doing the same stuff in a few weeks. Poor guys are going to really suffer with nasty heat that time of year! To get the requested 3000 km, I'll have to pull together almost all of the DVR stages, including the high-elevation (9600ft, 3000m) stuff from the Bishop-Dumont stage.

One more thing, apparently they are full-on HRC bikes (not adapted from other rally kits).
Wish I could come!

We'll be expecting photos. Glorious, full-colour hi resolution photos

Hi Scott!

That's also the word here. HRC had something new already developed that is now being modified with Helder's suggestions / requirements.

just to poke an eye or 2 as you're w/ honda.

i'm sure we'd all love to know when finally honda updates the xr650l class bike and truly competes in the 800 adv market (a real transalp). i'm thinking that will happen after those classes have moved on to to the next standard up.
growing up honda was the leader, now all they do is follow way way behind.
maybe that's changing?

Plus input from Quinn Cody and JCR.

BTW, seems like you guys (Nomads) need a Vegas / California / Mojave Desert / Grand Canyon vacation in August.

You could buzz around the desert on a couple of borrowed GS's and "accidently" be hanging out just at the right time at every highway crossing where my roadbook routes go! You might be able to get some spy photos of you own. Then come and borrow my 525 and do some of the routes yourself!
Not Quinn, he's with the Orange team - but by all accounts not for the Dakar - !!!!????

Yes Quinn, he WAS on a Honda in Dakar and provided feedback through JCR before going Orange.
