not sure if it is 205, but in any case, Cyril's communications gurus at work:

I saw that yesterday - it's interesting to hear Cyril talk about the book he wrote to carry on the work started by the late Fabrizio Meoni in Senegal. A bit more info on the book here http://www.cyrildespres-shop.com/

I know one competitor will be auctioning a copy of the book signed by Cyril Despres to fund his 2013 Dakar campaign ..................

Rally Raid Review & ADV.

Many thanks to Doyle and RRR for keeping us informed during the 'difficult' Dakar 'Off Season'.
Plus Troy for his insightful and in depth answers to all questions RALLYE!
RRR and ADV have gently nursed us through those dark months but I do fear for Doyle!.......
How on this earth is he going to construct an opening post for the 2013 Dakar, it's going to be an epic so I bet he has already started writing it!

3 then Etienne said, let there be malle moto: and though headlights got smaller... still (for some) there was darkness encountered and the spirit of the dakar lives on in them...

Troy. Still prefer the original version of the beginning, but you are the creative F5rce, Im going to miss the the day by day bantering while I am out there reporting for you guys.

Thats great video by Cyril. Say what you will about his mudgate, nasty little tactics and killer instinct out there, he appears to actually quite a humble chap when he is not in race mode. I find that Cyril quite a liekeable chap. The Mr Hyde Cyril Despres is another thing altogether.

One interesting bit about the KTM photo shoot is the distinct lack of photo's of Coma's bike and more specifically, lack of any shots of his title sponsor, MRW. Word is new management pulled sponsorship at the 11th hour and both KTM and Coma's management are scrambling to fill that funding gap. Don't know if that will impact Coma's performance, I doubt it, but any worry is an extra drag that needs not be there.

Coma

I doubt highly that Coma will have any problem finding a sponsor even up to the day before the race. IMHO

Sorry to be blunt but Im hoping there is still time for improvements.
