Grabbo´s sponsors

Yes it would be greatly appreciated if you did let HSE know that you support Grabbo in his 2013 Dakar assault, without them as primary sponsor in addition to KTM Australia he would not be here about to kick off tomorrow.
It is HSE´s continued support that made it happen....



http://www.hsegroup.com.au/

Drop an email to Colin Ross at HSE and let him know what a legend he is for setting Grabbo up to show the world what he can do..............that way we can all make sure Grabbo gets back to Dakar for 2014

While you're at it, you can post messages of support to the GHR boys here. They'd love to hear from all of you.

Can someone post a list of riders and all of their sponsors? If I can support them I certainly will.

I do believe our boys have a great shot at making it in the top 10. Just need some luck to fall their way.

All the best boys.

There's a complete list of competitors and country of origin on the Dakar 2013 website:

http://www.dakar.com/dakar/2013/us/r...ist-bikes.html

Click on each one and you'll get a brief bio (a bit less brief in the case of Cyril), as well as details about bike and sponsors.

FWIW, the Red Bull site is very nice: http://www.redbull.com/en/motorsport...lly-dakar-2013

Good interviews and vids - some of the footage is pretty spectacular ...

New pics from over there.

Dakar 2013: Pictures from Lima

Time for some more pictures from Lima.

The boys hired a driver for two hour tour, visiting the start area and scrutineering zone just to get their bearings. Historical sites tell part of the the story of Lima. There are some grand old buildings but plenty not so grand also. The GHR bivouac in Lima was quite comfortable. Instead of camping in a foot of dust with everyone else they took over the whole Melia Lima hotel. Management arranged a photo shoot for themselves , the underground carpark was the comandeered as pits and whenever the truck needed space all the other teams had to move their cars.



Simon, Pete, Rob, Todd and Jake playing tourists at what will be the starting point of the Dakar.



Lima: architecture old and new.



Lima: one hell of a view down the coast!


Lima: colonial architecture in a city of nearly 9 million people.



Lima: colonial cityscapes.



Lima: colonial cityscapes.



Lima: three people in this tiny taxi.



Lima: three people in this tiny taxi.




Lima: when you have a race truck you need a good tow vehicle.



Lima: not a good start for this competitor.



Lima: home away from home.



Lima: the boys out and about.


Lima: getting to know the local police, for good reasons.



Lima: main road to the warehouse holding the team container and air freighted bikes.



Lima: where to park the new GHR truck? Out the front of course.



Lima: the crew have been eating well courtesy of the local pasta house, and yes it is fresh.



Lima: but some habits die hard. The ubiquitous golden arches.



Lima: GHR reserved parking and hotel management.



Lima: the Dakar crew briefing. Hard work but someone has to do it.



Lima: the night before Dakar! Glen, Brett, Todd, Paul, a charitable local and Warren.

After the riders briefing there was total chaos. No taxis could be found. What do you do but pull over a local and give them some team stickers and a bit of cash. He did it just to help out and pulled of some radical moves in grid lock traffic including a u-turn across six lanes of traffic to deliver the boys home to the Melia. Just an example of the atmosphere over here.

What about Rocket Rod?

Great to get all the pre race updates from the Aussie competitors- but very little info re Rod Fagotters preparations. What team is he actually with? Or does he run his own gig?
I know a lot of people here think that he might be a bit down on raw speed compared to the more fancied Aussie riders but given his experience and attitude he has every chance to do very well- finishing best placed Aussie even?
Would be nice to read a bit more about him here.
Cheers waldecker
