Roulette in the rocks...

Curious... looking back at that footage from 2012... Barreda's crash looked as (if not more) spectacular than the one Quinn had... yet he got up (even though cautiosly) and continued... whereas QC's trip over the bars ended up with the medics...

Whenever you "race" sometimes there is just something out there with your name on it... at Dakar there a thousands of kilometers of stuff with places for names.

Not the best video, but I love hearing him say 'Sono bloccato dalla paura' and "Vai moto vai, forza moto...non mi tradire"

crisis Bordone Ferrari

from Gerard Farres Guell homepage & Facebook

Estimado/a amigo/a,Me pongo en contacto contigo a través de este email para comunicarte que desde hoy mismo he dejado de formar parte del equipo Bordone Ferrari Racing Team por la no renovación del contrato que nos unía.La vinculación entre el Bordone Ferrari Racing Team y yo nació hace aproximadamente un año con la misión de desarrollar un equipo de competición potente para el Rally Dakar y el mundial de raids.En muy poco tiempo hemos conseguido articular un proyecto muy joven y ambicioso con mucho esfuerzo, trabajo y buena voluntad. Los resultados, además, nos han acompañado en todas las pruebas. Y en mi caso me siento muy orgulloso del séptimo puesto conseguido en la pasada edición del Dakar.No obstante, siento que he cumplido una parte de los objetivos que me había marcado y que el proyecto tiene que seguir su propio camino sin mí. Tengo el convencimiento de que he cubierto una etapa de mi carrera profesional y ahora es el momento de buscar nuevos alicientes y nuevos retos, que espero poder explicarte muy pronto.A Bordone Ferrari Racing Team y a mis ya excompañeros les deseo mucha suerte y muchos éxitos.Gerard Farrés Güell

The results also accompanied us on all tests. And in my case I am very proud of the seventh place finish in last year's Dakar.No However, I feel I have met some of the goals I had set and that the project has to go its own way without me. I have the conviction that I have covered a stage in my career and now is the time to look for new incentives and new challenges, I hope I can explain very pronto.A Bordone Ferrari Racing Team and my former teammate and I wish you much luck and success.

How's the GHR Honda effort going? The effort some of the Aussies are going to is amazing.

Looks okay but I hope he puts some oil in it before he rides it!
Funny that Ben seemed to hate having a fairing in front of him and hated low front guards but hey??

Rumors have been abound since the Baja de Espana just before they launched Oldrati. Then the stalled Mi1, rumors of the mechanics and then Fernando Prades not being paid...Where there's smoke, there's fire. I tried to contact then several times for quotes on their side of the story as far as the rumors go, but have not received any replies.
