Some of the Spanish and Portuguese reports referenced an official statement from Honda on Zanol, but I have yet to find one.

Unfortunately not good, definitely out of Dakar, he is devastated mentally that all that hard work in training and preparation has gone to waste. Operated on in California yesterday, broken scaphoid to be wired and approx 12 weeks recovery through no fault of his own I am absolutey gutted for him. Praying for Philipe Zanol also and feel for both him and his family. You have to ask, why on earth did Honda not organise for test riders this close to the Dakar?

Oh damn, we were looking forward to following him.
What do you mean by "no fault of his own"? Did someone crash into him?

Damn, so sad to hear about Sam. I've also heard a few mentions of the "no fault of his own" and I don't know what that means.

I cannot really say, will have to wait for the Honda press release but I can say that no other vehicle or person was involved.

Either way, tell Sam he's a hero in our book.

Thank you Doyle for your kind words and here's to a better and luckier 2013 for him (discounting the Dakar in January of course!) when the rally raids restart in March, just hope he is ready as such a long recovery time for scaphoid unfortunately. No-one could put more effort in to something than Sam does, 100% commitment all the time and he was so excited and so wanted this Dakar under his belt He is still very young so hopefully things will come right in the end for him as no-one deserves it more than him although I guess I am slightly biased being a mum!!
