"Elite" Aussies...?

And judging by the #38 start number he got... Grabbo' has been put on as well...?

On pure "ability" that would probably make a case for Todd Smith and Rod Faggotter as well...? Although if "elite" status only takes into account "international" experience (not domestic achievements), then only Rod F (who did Dakar last year) has any overseas merits.

But in reality both Todd (GHR Honda) and Rod (with Yamaha Eu) both carry similar speed to Grabbo and Fishy.

Could be a few roo's up in the mix this year?

Sorry Troy
Of course you are right, I did not make it very clear that it was the provisonal ASO elite list and as you so rightly said I am sure there will be some additions and omissions when the final Dakar entry list comes out eventually

Grabbo's number is not confirmed yet, it may be 50+ since the lower ones go to Elite riders, 38 was for graphic effect !

oh... bummer... I assumed too much... though somewhere in the high 30's, or 40's is probably deserving spot.

A lot depends on how well the "rider resumé" is filled out on the entry form I suppose... and if it's in French... How is Grabbo's French doing Garry...?

Yup. Interesting article in a big local newspaper last weekend, I was really surprised to see Tobias aka Kommissar Rex do the Dakar with Kinis support!! Only in the 5th paragraph did they mention that he is actually doing the Africa race and only riding to Dakar...
