Well someone beat me to posting that!

Sorry for neglecting the post, the business level has been off the charts helping to prep for this years race!

The riding kit thing, we are thinking of replica race shirts, printed and/or whole sets of off-road kit if you so desire.

And/or enduro jackets as well?

For those of you craving some Dakar photo's go here - www.simonpavey.com/galleries

Some detailed statics of simon's bike there, all images and video by me

+1 on the t-shirt (not as keen on the replica stuff)

Anyone know why his son wasn't allowed in? age? experience?

If you haven't already realised "That Camera Kid" is Si's son Llewelyn... I'm sure he knows

Totally pulling for Simon to have a great Dakar!

He embodies everything that is right about that race.

Some great videos and photos, thanks.

What's behind the decision to use Ohlins rather than WP suspension? I thought WP would have been the logical choice given its popularity and the potential for borrowing parts from other teams if needed.

BTW good luck to Simon, I hope he does better than ever.
