SABC article:

Quote:
Darryll Curtis and new team mate Riaan van Niekerk have announced that they will contest the next three Dakar Rally on factory entered KTM motorcycles.

Former Dakar winners Cyril Despres and Marc Coma will spearhead the KTM assault. Curtis and van Niekerk will be known as the "B" team.

Similar story from SouthAfrica.info and Motorsport South Africa:

Quote:
The Broadlink team has been included in an official KTM support team of four riders to the factory team of former Dakar Rally winners Cyril Despres of France and Marc Coma of Spain and their "water carriers", Spanish riders Reuben Faria and Juan Pedrero.

The hope that you won't be needed?
That they may have the chance to come second or third?
Happy to be a team player when the other member of the team wouldn't piss on you if you were on fire, or stuck in the mud?
The fact that they will have the 3rd and 4th best bikes in the rally - so far that is?
The money - not understood to be great, but neither are the other basic opportunities?
They have both accepted that they can't beat the aliens anyway?

All of the above

The B team have big sponsorship from Broadlink, a South African networking company, that is a fact.

I think that Faria and Pedrero hope to be the next winners. But as you say that they have been waterboys -or should I say watercarriers - for quite a while now.

Who know how long the aliens will continue? Mr Pendejo has talked about going over to cars but not just yet. I give him one, maybe two more years on bikes. Mr Coma on the other hand seems to really love riding, he still seems really strong, maybe another 3-4 Dakar's in him on a bike?

Thanks for the link Dread!

I think Darryl has the potential to get a top 10 this coming year. I'm certainly going to be cheering him on!
