Fantastic interview, thanks for that.... Pity about BF, Chaleco sorted it seems, I wonder what Viladoms and Botturi will decide to do in January?

Agreed, awesome interview. Provides some great insight. Maybe its the translation I used (google) but it didnt seem clear the Lopez was getting a ktm ride, just that he had spent a bunch of $ on a bike and spares...


GOOGLE TRANSLATION


BARREDA confirms that BORDONE-FERRARI VA plummeting PLAZA AND HAVE BOUGHT IN VEST KTM
In an interview with Befurious, Catalan Egypt Rally winner confirmed in an interview that "Francisco Lopez already have bought their place in KTM, with bike rally kit, two engines and suspensions of good for about 150,000 Euros." Adding "since Thomas Oldrati appeared saying that he was not paid in Bordone-Ferrari, the other riders have confirmed the situation. Viladoms Farrés and the rest are virtually no bike, and it's a shame."


Joan Barreda arrives in great shape to Dakar and held nothing back in an interview with Befurious
Two years since Joan Barreda be initiated into the world of rallying, the controversial pilot at first few betting and branded as crazy and risky, but with the passage of time and with the help of the right people is getting out gold oil and becoming everything that touches lately.
Great driver and a better person and agree all try it, now is open to the stretch Befurious which may be the most important moment of rallying in the last 15 years, the possible change in the Dakar cycle.



It will be his third Dakar and near Coma, Despres and Helder Rodrigues Vest, favorites to be top

- What is the key with which you faced the last two rallies of the season, Morocco and Egypt, where you get what many dream?

"The secret is basically the work we do all this in 2012, it is unimaginable and very intense, but mostly I think the key is the human factor, the people I've surrounded me in recent times. This last year I have three or four people behind it are basic in my life and without which there would be able to reap the fruits of all that they have helped me grow.
First my manager John, my great support, which leaves nothing to chance and always there, always aware of the detail, also "Waffy", Wolfgang Fischer, who gives me all my training facilities and is a pillar huge in my work and now Nani Roma, with whom I am working, yesterday without going further in the CAR of Barcelona, ​​learning from their vast experience and their customs in the race, its always positive way of dealing with careers, something Basic. "



Support
among others who surround him now Wolfgang Fischer "Waffy" has been basic and crucial

- So teamwork and especially an experienced team is essential for this explosion of Joan Barreda?

"Indeed, it is basic. If I was only on a computer with a mechanic or a manager who is dedicated to bringing only the management may not be seeing the results now. It is hard work in all aspects and support of many people. For example, in Morocco conducted with more head and less sense, but it is also true that the last day I was racing with possibilities of qualifying to snatch victory and Cyril Despres victory and could pay dearly.
I went out to run in very slippery conditions that the previous night had diluviado and although I fell when I was cutting time from my computer stopped me and made me see that reality in rallying bypasses the all or nothing, but the head and curb your cravings, as I did during the previous days is more important to avoid mistakes and let the others are falling on them, the award came to be second. "



Speedbrain Husqvarna team, a key to development of the Husqvarna and good result
s

- There is much talk of the new Husqvarna TE 449 Rally is a motorcycle as fast and reliable as it seems, what are the secrets?

"Really, there are no more secrets to do many tests and be on top of it as long as possible, day after day. We worked hard on the bike in Germany, in Italy, Tunisia and Morocco and we've taken many hours trying things. In fact in recent races have only had a problem with one of them, that of Paulo Gonçalves in Morocco and it was because the bolts broke rear brake disc, something difficult to predict and that is not motor problem.
As speed is true that we are a little faster than the rest, it seems that about 3 km / h faster than the KTM tip but not only that, but the acceleration has this bike, in that if we which is above the rest. It is also true that for the Dakar have left to prove in the last two rallies of the FIM with a totally aggressive settings, seeking to test the reliability benefits stop and the bike has behaved like a charm, is a weapon that we have, we know it's there, but in the Dakar is very long you can risk not to mount a radical configuration. "


"We have great weapons, acceleration and top speed. That we use in the Dakar is nothing "

- Navigation and temperance, your sword of Damocles far did you have dominated?

"The truth is that more and more, this is a world and everything is so different from one test to another, so many miles, so many new stages. For example this year I think I'll be the pilot will have done more miles on a bike before the Dakar rally, between 50,000 and 60,000 and it shows in the end, we have gone a long way and that's the key. For example also in these two races has been one thing that has helped me a lot and is open track, being in front, which is difficult in rallying.
Stress and mental exhaustion of opening is brutal, unimaginable. Psychically is a huge effort to go forward looking drawn, reading the roadbook, printing up pace and trying not to get caught the back. I think that today there are only three drivers who can do that, Cyril, Marc and Helder.( ) It is complicated to open and win the stage, I've got only once in Egypt and was the biggest win I've gotten since I've been in rallying. For example, in Morocco, got tired and then I run out, I put in "Diesel mode" to navigate and not fail, and ended up without fail endured much and no serious mistakes, that's what counts. "


Barreda pilot will take more miles behind them before the Dakar this year, nearly 60,000

- So we have a new Joan Barreda?

"Is that we are, we calmly, every day, taking a step further with the bike and learning more and more of everything. We must aim to make a rally of 15 days without receiving the error, and that's the key to this, the tool is work hard and surround yourself with people who will advise you well and transfer their experiences, as you live and know them before you can happen to you, or know how to react when you find them in the face. "

- How do you see the outlook for the new competitive 450 in the Dakar, Honda, KTM, Yamaha, Husqvarna?

"The truth is that going to be interesting, every year will be a more competitive and fairer and more and more tight. Yamaha for example for the Dakar riding a huge structure and invests a lot of money, I think it lacks a preseason make specific and focused for the Dakar as KTM makes or us. Honda has had problems with the fuel rod broke in Morocco, but it was his first race and performance Helder and still young CRF 450 Rally has been amazing and I think that has impressed us all.
KTM on the other hand has the two best, most recognized and experienced pilots and a very experienced team and a big budget. I think it is all very open between these four brands and trademarks are increasingly aware of the reputation and brand image is so huge that win a Dakar. This year I'll tambiñen Matt Fish backpacking (thats a new term for water carrier )and I think after the good work he has done will be a great support. "



"The competition between Honda, KTM and Husqvarna will foster an intense struggle in the Dakar 2013"

- Do you think mastering danger KTM and the Dakar Rally in the World?

"In the FIM World Rally Championship in 2011 and won the Yamaha Helder, but the Dakar is not going to leave out, is too media. For example KTM has set up a game extra budget to accelerate the development and evolution of the 450 Rally that planned for 2014 and will advance to after this Dakar. They have seen that we have Honda Husqvarna and "stepping up" and that can be left behind, winning the Dakar today is basic and does not want to be escape.
It's a race where if we see that there are two drivers on a computer, there are 30 people working behind them so that nothing goes wrong, even leading brands to bring claims lawyers and interpret regulations and racing career in hand, is another way to win that is extremely competitive, and to take the prize for winning the race more competitive, and followed by the world media, but the Tour de France, there can be failures. "



Barreda had the opportunity of joining Bordone Ferrari in January, is now about to disappear

- Earlier this year you had the opportunity to go to Bordone Ferrari with a good contract and paid very well now how do you see a team that seems to disintegrate?

"The idea was great and everything started very well, but the fact is that it is very badly. If you tell me a month ago if Bordone llagaría to Dakar, I'd say yes, because Viladoms, Vest and Botturi have gone to Egypt and Morocco with registration paid by the team, but now it does not look good. Since Thomas Oldrati appeared saying that he was not paid, the other riders have confirmed the situation. Viladoms, Farrés and the rest are virtually no bike, and it's a shame, because if I had known earlier could have participated in the project with Helder Rodrigues Honda that had been an incredibly good option.
Francisco Lopez already have bought their place in KTM, with bike rally kit, two engines and suspensions of good for about 150,000 Euros, Gerard Farres has an option with a private Honda, but the rest if they stay in the team is because you do not have a better option to hold on, as the team must not be very well off financially and the worst can happen in weeks. "



Joan Barreda is postulated as one of the pilots to snatch KTM hegemony in rallying

- How do you plan now this stretch of two months until the start of the Dakar 2013?

"Let's do one more test in Morocco a week focusing on navigation, but now three weeks ahead I be doing physical work fine without touching the bike, regain muscle tone and gain back basically to get him to South America fit as possible, I have had a lot of bike in the last few months and I'm a little tired. It is also important to study each and every stage of the Dakar race with Nani and my team, with Google Earth, providing experiences of each strategy by analyzing the millimeter and sacándole whole essence of the special day, the terrain, to hazards and road books. "

From ASO

“Cyril Despres, on the rally of Morocco, you completed another phase of your preparation with success. How ready would you say you are?
This year, I decided on a less strenuous racing programme. I took part in the Desafio Litoral, which helped kick-start my preparation, then the rally of Morocco, where I reckon I was at about 80% of my capacities. All the main names were present on the rally, so winning was a real confidence booster, especially since, in my mind, the rally was more like a sprint, whereas I feel I'm most efficient over long distances. Despite that, I managed to win, even if I did endure a day where I lost time, but I never lost my concentration.

Your rival Marc Coma crashed. You suffer this sort of incident even more rarely. Do you think this is due to superior technique in this domain?
Crashes always comes down to the smallest details, you have to be very humble about it. I could have fallen off the bike. In fact, it happens to me in training. However, I know that the work I do is also worth my while. I don't know many riders who shut themselves away like I'm doing at the moment, for a whole week in a sports fitness centre. I look after my body, because it's what wins me races and earns my living. It's true that I've not had any major accidents for a long time, touch wood.

“The gap will have closed once they can
beat us”

Some of the younger riders' performances are becoming more of a threat. Have you sensed that the gap between them and the duo that you form with Coma is shrinking?
Firstly, I'm delighted for the discipline that there are so many “official” riders, whether with Huqsvarna, Honda, Sherco, Yamaha or even KTM. Since I've been involved in this sport, there's never been so many of us. Some riders have set their sights high, like Barreda, Fish, Gonçalves, Rodrigues, etc., but you can say that the gap will have closed once they can beat us; until then, it doesn't mean a thing. For the moment, they are competitive, but they don't scare me.

Do you think you have found the winning formula for the Dakar?
I think I've found the right tools to win: my preparation, the team structure, the bike and my experience. That said, there are still a lot of special stages to ride before you can even think about winning! Another thing is that I'm getting better year after year. I'm working even harder on the physical aspect and I'm managing to find better form, even though I'm not riding that much. We will carry out a few test sessions with the team until 9th November, but afterwards until the start of the Dakar, I can count on my hand the number of hours I'll spend on the bike. Since the last edition, I've covered more kilometres on a bicycle than on my motorbike”.

Finito Bordone Ferrari...

from italian blog: my blog.it


La domanda sorge spontanea visti i recenti sviluppi, soprattutto nell'ambito enduro. Il pignoramento ed il sequestro di tutto il materiale del team Bordone Ferrari è avvenuto al rientro dal Marocco, dopo la gara di metà ottobre e la sorpresa è stata totale. Il mondo dell'enduro è ancora sotto choc per quanto avvenuto, e questo non giova di certo ad un ambiente che già non attraversa un periodo facile.


27 moto, e poi furgoni e camion. Questo il 'bottino' risultato dalla maxi confisca avvenuta nei capannoni milanesi del Bordone Ferrari. L'ufficiale giudiziario li ha aspettati al varco ed appena rientrati dal Marocco, due martedì fa, gli uomini del team si sono trovati davanti gli agenti incaricati del maxi sequestro. Giusto il tempo di aprire i cancelli, di portare dentro i mezzi e l'ufficiale è arrivato, mentre si stavano lavando i furgoni.

Tutte le moto presenti, da enduro, sono state bloccate ed ora il materiale verrà utilizzato per ripagare i tantissimi debiti che il team aveva accumulato con moltissimi fornitori. Si sono salvate le uniche moto da rally - quelle che esistono in realtà, perchè pare che le 4 moto previste per la Dakar non siano neanche state ultimate - e sono scampate al sequestro perchè si trovano in Spagna, a casa del capo meccanico Fernando. Altre moto invece sono ancora in Africa, impegnate in una gara. Tutti gli altri mezzi ora, però, sono nelle mani della giustizia che facilmente dovrebbe metterli all'asta per recuperare tutti i soldi che andranno poi a saldare i conti in sospeso di davvero troppe persone.

Restano a piedi così non solo i piloti, ma anche i meccanici che avevano creduto in questo progetto e vi si erano dedicati anima e cuore, così come appunto i piloti stessi. Molti di loro non hanno ancora incassato lo stipendio, e sembra che la cosa veramente vada già avanti da qualche mese, e non si sa bene cosa ne sarà di loro adesso che la Bordone Ferrari ha chiuso i battenti.

Il dubbio resta per i rally. Cosa faranno ora Alessandro Botturi e Jordi Viladoms? Parlo di lorodue perchè Paolo Ceci e Gerard Farres sembrano essere già fuori dal team. Dopo il rally in Marocco i piloti sono rimasti giù in Africa e stanno affrontando la gara di Merzouga, organizzata da Edo Mossi ma al loro rientro bisognerà prendere una decisione per la Dakar, per capire chi ci andrà. Con i francesi della ASO infatti, non si scherza...se vuoi partecipare devi pagare tutto, in anticipio, altrimenti a Lima non ci arrivi.

google translation:

The question arises of recent developments, especially in the enduro. The seizure and confiscation of all material in the Bordone Ferrari team happened to return from Morocco, after the race in mid-October and the surprise was total. The world enduro is still in shock over what happened, and this is not conducive to a certain setting which does not cross an easy time.


27 motorbikes, vans and trucks and then. This is the 'booty' result from the maxi confiscation took place in the halls of Milan Bordone Ferrari. The bailiff them waited at the gate and just returned from Morocco, two Tuesdays ago, the men's team found themselves in front of the officials responsible for the maxi seizure. Just enough time to open the gates to let in the media and the officer arrived, as they were washing the vans.

All these bikes, enduro, were blocked and now the material will be used to repay the many debts that the team had accumulated with many suppliers. They saved the only motorcycle rally - those that exist in reality, because it seems that the 4 bikes provided for the Dakar are not even been completed - and survived the kidnapping because they are in Spain, home of the chief mechanic Fernando. Other bikes but I'm still in Africa, engaged in a race. All other means now, though, are in the hands of justice that should easily put up for auction to recover all the money that will then settle outstanding accounts of too many people.

Still walk so not only the drivers but also the mechanics who believed in this project and we were devoted heart and soul, just as the pilots themselves. Many of them have not yet received the salary, and it seems that what is really going on for a few months already, and no one knows what will happen to them now that the Bordone Ferrari has closed its doors.

The question remains for the rally. What will they do now Alessandro Botturi and Jordi Viladoms? I'm talking about because lorodue Paolo Ceci and Gerard Farres seem to be already out of the team. After the rally in Morocco drivers were down in Africa and are facing the race of Merzouga, organized by Edo Mossi but on their return will need to make a decision for the Dakar, to understand who we will be. With the French ASO in fact, do not mess around ... if you want to participate you must pay for everything, IN ADVANCE, otherwise in Lima do not get it.

bad story, somebody knew the real background ?

For months it hard, mouth problems encountered by the Bordone-Ferrai Racing circulate and amplify the hour ...

The team consists of six pilots, a technical staff adapted a manager Jordi Arcarons found since last June in an impasse! The funnel narrows over the weeks. Thus we learn that the whole team has put an ultimatum to the leaders of the box to stabilize the financial situation quickly. We talk about next week.

They are not alone! Suppliers are sounding the alarm ... It is also ensured that the construction of the magnificent Bordone-Ferrari Motorcycle Italiana Mi1 presented in June in large pump is stopped and it will certainly never happen!

We also know that no contracts that bind drivers to Mr. and Mrs. Nicoletta Renato Ferrari Elisa Altieri Bordone are - for the moment - not respected ... Finally, we know that the whole team Bordone - Ferrari could be dissolved so quickly that it was created.

One of six drivers will be spared in this unpacking: Chaleco Lopez. Indeed, the Chilean has a very special status within the team. It has its own partners and provides its KTM machines! Save that for the Dakar 2013 while others, Jordi Viladoms, Alessandro Botturi ... may well find themselves on foot, empty pockets and watch the 2013 edition of the Dakar on TV!

Case to follow closely ...

Bordone - Ferrari comeback

Comeback from Bordone - Ferrari:

from: http://quellidellafrica.myblog.it/ar...cialmente.html



Una telefonata nella mattinata e una lunga chiacchierata con Renato Ferrari arriva a dissipare tutte le nubi, o quasi, che avevano oscurato l'orizzonte. Ferrari parla del team di enduro, dei pagamenti sospesi e di quelli fatti, delle moto bloccate per sicurezza e della squadra di rally che non è affatto al Merzouga Rally, come scritto sul sito della gara http://www.merzougarally.com/wp-cont...oads/2012/10/E... (ed erroneamente anche da questo blog, non essendo personalmente sul posto)!




"E' vero - comincia a dire Renato Ferrari, deus ex machina del team Bordone Ferrari - abbiamo avuto problemi con i pagamenti arretrati e siamo rimasti in sospeso con diverse cose ma questo è accaduto per una crescita esagerata..."
In effetti queste parole Renato Ferrari le aveva usate già in passato, quando più di qualcuno, dai piloti ai meccanici lamentava qualche arretrato di stipendio e si era mormorato nell'ambiente di una ricapitalizzazione dei fondi economici, appunto. Sono poi intervenuti altri problemi "aspetti che hanno toccato la parte finanziaria" li definisce Ferrari, ed ecco spiegato il blocco dei pagamenti.
Poi enumera le date e le scadenze. "Con TM avevamo stabilito una serie di scadenze di pagamento e una di queste era prevista al 26 di ottobre, non capisco perchè il giorno 22 loro si siano presentati con l'ufficiale giudiziario; posso pensare che la loro sia stata un'azione preventiva, ma davvero non ne capisco il motivo. Con loro avevamo stabilito due scadenze, se ricordo bene, una a ottobre appunto e l'altra al 15 di novembre".
Le moto quindi, ora, sono state bloccate in misura cautelativa e "nessuo può toccarle o accedervi, ma questo non significa che ci siano i sigilli" ha sottolineato Ferrari. E poi parliamo di pagamenti. "Mercoledì scorso abbiamo emesso ben 72 bonifici ! Abbiamo pagato tutti quelli che avanzavano da noi: piloti, meccanici, fornitori, e poi ancora i sottofornitori dei fornitori, ecc ecc".
A questo punto parliamo di futuro. Lasciamo stare l'enduro e pensiamo, e concentriamoci, sui rally che sono molto più vicini.
Nonostante quello che sta scritto sul sito del Merzouga Rally nella lista dei partenti, non c'è nessun elemento del Bordone Ferrari presente alla gara ! Nè Ceci che doveva avere il numero 1, nè Botturi, nè Viladoms che era il numero 2 ! Nè tantomeno Renato Ferrari che invece è qui a casa a sistemare un po' di cose. "Abbiamo deciso di non andare in Marocco per varie ragioni, in accordo con il team manager Jordi Arcarons. I ragazzi stanno preparandosi in modo diverso al momento e non è escluso che si vada in Marocco prima di partire per la gara di gennaio".
Ma il team da chi sarà formato? "Ci sarà il nostro Alessandro Botturi, insieme a Chaleco Lopez e Jordi Viladoms". E gli altri? "Gerard Farres non fa più parte della nostra squadra, ha preso una via diversa e ora è nelle fila di un altro team, mentre Paolo Ceci correrà all'Africa Race. Lui non aveva mai provato l'esperienza di una Dakar in Africa e così abbiamo pensato - visto che l'organizzazione dell'Africa Race ce lo ha chiesto - di mandarlo a correre lì a fine dicembre, cosa alla quale lui teneva particolarmente".
E infine la domanda tanto attesa: con che moto correrete alla Dakar? "Useremo ancora la Ktm 450. Abbiamo deciso di non utilizzare la nostra moto, quella nuova, perchè sarebbe troppo rischioso. Il mio sogno di sviluppare una moto completamente nuova in così poco tempo non è realizzabile, me ne sono reso conto, e quindi non vogliamo rischiare. Non potrei mai permettere, nè accettare che uno dei nostri piloti resti a piedi alla Dakar per un contatto elettrico o per una sciocchezza simile. Non voglio rischiare, e per questo andremo con le Ktm classiche". E in futuro? "Continuiamo a lavorare sulla nostra moto allo scopo di renderla affidabile e nella prossima stagione, spero, potremo usarla in tutte le gare".

google translation:

A phone call in the morning and a long talk with Renato Ferrari arrives to dispel all the clouds, or almost, that had darkened the horizon. Ferrari talks about the team enduro, suspension of payments and those facts, the bikes locked for safety and rally team that is not the Merzouga Rally, as written on the race site http://www.merzougarally.com/wp -content/uploads/2012/10/E ... (And erroneously also from this blog, I myself am not on the spot)!


*

"It 's true - begin to say Renato Ferrari, deus ex machina of the Bordone Ferrari team - we had problems with the arrears and were pending with different things but that was exaggerated for growth ..."
In fact, these words Renato Ferrari had used them in the past, when more than one person, from pilots to mechanics complained some backlog of salary and had whispered in the environment of a recapitalization of the economic funds, in fact. Then other problems are occurring "aspects that have affected the financial" Ferrari defines them, and that explains the blocking of payments.
Then lists the dates and deadlines. "With TM we established a series of deadlines for payment and one of these was scheduled to October 26, the 22nd day do not understand why they are presented with the bailiff, I think that their was a preventive action, but really do not understand why. With them we set two deadlines, if I remember correctly, just one in October and the other on the 15th of November. "
The motion then, now, have been locked in a precautionary measure and "nessuo can touch them or access them, but that does not mean that there are seals" said Ferrari. And then we talk about payments. "On Wednesday we have issued as many as 72 credit! We paid all those who were advancing from us: pilots, mechanics, suppliers, and again the sub-suppliers of suppliers, etc. etc.".
At this point we are talking about the future. Forget the enduro and think, and focus, on the rally that are much closer.
Despite what is written on the website of Merzouga Rally in the list of starters, there is no evidence in the present Bordone Ferrari in the race! Neither Ceci who had to have the number 1, or Botturi nor Viladoms that was the number 2! Nor even Renato Ferrari instead is here at home to arrange a little 'things. "We decided not to go to Morocco for various reasons, according to the team manager Jordi Arcarons. Boys are preparing in a different way at the moment and it is possible that you go in Morocco before leaving for the race in January."
But the team will be formed by those who? "It will be our Botturi Alexander, along with Chaleco Lopez and Jordi Viladoms." And the others? "Gerard Farres is no longer part of our team, took a different path and is now in the ranks of another team, while Paolo Ceci run Africa Race. He had never had the experience of a Dakar in Africa and so we thought - since the organization has asked him to Africa Race - for him to run there at the end of December, something which kept him particularly. "
And finally, the long awaited question: with which bike you'll run the Dakar? "We will still Ktm 450. We decided not to use our bike, the new one, because it would be too risky. My dream of developing a completely new bike in such a short time is not feasible, I realized, and therefore not want to risk it. I could never afford, nor accept that one of our drivers remains on foot to Dakar for an electrical contact or something simple. do not want to risk it, and that's why we're going with the KTM classic ". And in the future? "We continue to work on our bikes in order to make it reliable and next season I hope we can use it in all the races."
