He finished in last after the entire bike fell apart inlcuding the starter. At one point he used a rope and a camel to bump start it in soft sand. He had never ridden a bike on the street or gone around a corner...only back and forth on a dirt road

He moved on and gained a bunch of experience and after a few failed attempts he finished the Dakar in 2011 (? I think).

Last year he spruced up an xr650l and attempted a record speed for circumnavigating Africa. He had a bad, bad crash.

I'm stoked to see he is back competing again...but what the heck is riding
Thanks so much for the kind words.. I really appreciate.
I am writting you from Merzouga.
This bike is a prtotype fromTacita. its name is T-Race..
I am honnored to be their test pilot, We are here to gain more data on what will become the next generation of off road electric.
I am getting a reasonable 75 mph rally speed. The range is what we are testing. So we will not make performance but willl try to finish the rally
it is a world premier
btw they are 4 battery reservoir and has a 6 gearbox:
talk to you more later with pics and report

Let us know where we could learn more Pat

MANY penalties
Second stage headlines

Merzouga Rally SS2 148 km of selective sectors
top 5
1. Jaceck Czachor (Orlen Team)
2. Ben Grabham
3. Pedro Bianchi Prata
4. Maurizio Micheluz
5. Glauco Ciarpaglini with ORLEN Team.

Ben is putting up a good show, would suggest it may be between him and Czachor by the the of the week, it's a pity that there wern't any of the top riders there (with total respect for the guys there) to judge hi by
