Great news! I haven't seen Johnny since spring of 1990 if my recollection serves me!

Freedom Rally Racing is going

This year, for the third time we are going.
The team has the support truck and the RV in England
The two KTM 450 are being finished and send to France on October 16th.
Colombians Marco Saldariaga and Mateo Moreno are the riders of those two bikes.
Bikes were prepared by Scott Spears here in Missouri.
Michael Stanfield is racing KTM Rally Replica.
My KTM XC 150 is in Spain, this year is going to be prepared by JVO, the first JVO KTM.

We still have spots in the container if anyone needs to transport items to France

It is going to be a great Dakar

Hi Luis,

Darn right it's gonna be a great Dakar! RMS going again too. It'll be BicyclePhil and I running the truck this year. Truck is in the UK right next to yours ;-) Let's talk about your container. Check PM's or have Mike call me.

ADV folks, RMS will have room for two tourists this year. Contact me asap if you are interested.

Dave

So people from the U.S. racing this year include:

Johnny Campbell
Kevin Muggelton
Mike Stanfield
Luis Belaustegui

Am I forgetting anyone? And I realized I've been assuming that JC had ridden a bike in the Dakar before, but that's not actually the case, is it?


Even without Jenny and Llewellyn not racing, if I've counted correctly The Crown is sending another 10 riders (UK, Australia, South Africa,Canada).

I have to wonder if it cost him less than 15,800 Euro's to get the 15,800 Euro entry fee for free? Not sure if he hired a bike package for the Safari or brought his own over.

Rumors are that Patsy is not sending a support team....maybe some Brits backed out?

Mike Stanfield is going? I thought he wasn't accepted? Super cool if he got in. Always good fun to cheer for someone to defeat the odds

More Canadians than Americans this year....odd...

I got the same impression chatting to her a month ago in Serres. She was heavily championing the Africa Eco race as an alternative and "back to the roots" race which is cheaper to do for the motorcycle enthusiast who doesn't have access to a trust fund

Yea, RMS was gonna go with Patsy, but she changed plans and now we are sending our own truck.

Did I mention we have room for two tourists? Ted, come back again?

Anyone else want to write a book, live the dream, etc?



I think Ted will tell you it was worth it.

KTM - JVO 150cc.

Freedom Rally Racing is assiting
Colombians Marteo Moreno and Marco Salsariaga on KTM 450 prepared by Scott Spears
and Luis Belaustegui (myself) with KTM 150 prepared by JVO, The first KTM -JVO.
Here is a picture of the computer model. I can upload pictures as work advances.

Freedom Rally Racing is sending a 40 foot container that leaves for France on Oct 16th, if anyone has stuff to send, contact Mike Stanfield.

We also have room for tourists, and two spots for motorcycles and mechanics.
The team has a state of the art support truck and a beautiful motor-home, for the ones that do not like to chew dust while asleep (not my case)

As soon as I figure it out I post pics.

As Charlie says
Fun Fun
