Neil, that's a really bugger about the leg, hope it's a clean break and heals ok

I sympathise as this was me just before the 2012 Dakar, mind you it did mean I could fully participate in the 2012 F5 Dakar



Suspected fracture of the tibial plateau (not good), luckily it turned out to me ligament and muscle damage only, although I didn't finish physio until September

Cyrils puchased the option on RG's clearance sale (2 x Hummers, an 18 wheeler kool aid box and all the redneck inflater systems you could ever need) and after the 2013 show he is starting his own auto team; l'equipe Hummér au Rouge Bull...?

I was to going to comment on what Doyle said, but the "post-Dakar" threw me for a loop. Maybe that's what it would take to get one on the podium. I kid. The hummer actually looks fun to watch (unlike the VWs and Beemers, which are no doubt fast, but just kind of boring), and would no doubt be a scream to drive. Regardless, I care little for the cars, and would rather see a big-boy biker retiree step right on up to a Kamaz! Now that would be fun to watch!

You wouldn't. I'm a nobody around here, plus, you wouldn't want me to cry on the advent of my birthday do you??

OK, I'll spill it...

Helder's contract was only for Morocco and Dakar. Word has it that Cyril has done a deal with HRC and they will not pay for two top riders.

Sheesh! That's a risky move. That would be like Sebastien Loeb quitting Citroen for VW in the WRC

Not that risky looking comparing the pocket depths of VW vs. Citroen or in this case, Honda vs. KTM.

Isn't there some sort of saying about "not switching horses in mid-stream!"

I can't imagine that. RB headquarters are like an hour from KTM. I always thought the Despres deal was made between Mateschitz and Pierer.
