Won't take odds but will definitely be paying attention.

F5re in the hold anyone?
If it does... just watch for "deep sea scuba diving" to suddenly become the most popular other interest here on the Adventure Rider website rider profiles, and wanted ads for surplus WWII pressure diving suits and helmets to start cropping up in the fleamarket...

The man has won everything desert and enduro here in Australia multiple times as well as ISDE E1, and quickly got to grips with the GPS and dunes at Merzouga while just in cruise mode........................so anyone willing to step up and take on some odds ?
+1

A real fair prospect for the "Dakar rookie" award for 2013 I reckon...

Tell me the odds, the guy is quick and talented but think the Dakar may not consider him a rookie. But who knows thier criteria ?

It's gonna be a battle this year. Fast boys , guys with routine, long shots, have to say that I reckon the top ten will be the alien class and those who take the risk to travel at hyper speed. I think the number of ultra quick guys is so large that even with the attrition rate of Dakar it will be tough for the safe, race pace diesels to enter the top ten.

I'm not sure a "race pace diesel" rider ever made top ten....top ten means full faith in the roadbook and hard on brakes into every corner and full throttle out. Full throttle on all straights, for 14 straight days

Agreed though, this year seem to have quite a few more capable riders on capable machines. Perhaps aligning for the best Dakar in years

38 more days

compared to the fishy is he the faster of the two? yes always...........like Coma to Ullavesetter, Matt has never beaten Ben at any race............but Matt has certainly lifted his pace this year but I dont believe to Ben's level.

But I agree with your initial observation - why the Irritrack still has to be that size goodness only knows, the similar E-track device is about 1/3rd the size and offers the same essential facilities, other than the two way voice comms... I'm sure it will come, but it is a PITA trying to find space on the new breed of bikes for that hunk of metal!
