Just caught up again....you guys are ferocious.

I have to say, weather or not, I would like to see the competition proceed as planned While not at the same level, I have ridden in pouring rain, freezing temps, snow.

To me, Dakar is not just a race. It's an experience, a trial, a series of moments that many of us will never experience first-hand, but will always be close to.

Last night the Mrs said I was talking about sprocket changes in my sleep. Here's to more of that tonight, and a great start for everyone tomorrow.

I'm not gonna make it... need the rest day :)

Thanks Mischa for adding the lists!

I've got the filterable Dakar Rider List somewhat updated tonight as well.

Good night all.

The risk he is taking of ending his rally tomorrow if the motor seizes (which sounds like its a good possibility due to pieces being loose in it) is the biggest sacrifice he is making.
From some reports it sounds like he's not happy with how this Dakar has been going for him. Perhaps it's the shoulder injury or whatever, but it's possible he feels that even if the damaged engine was to fail him it wouldn't be THAT great a loss.

Never trust a press release
According to Orlen Team website (orlenteam.pl) Marek offered the engine to Cyril.

You have to realize that Orlen has been pumping millions of euros into motorsports to promote their brand.
Last year PKN Orlen Net Profit was 0.75 billion euro (26 billion euro revenue). Total assets of KTM are valued at 0,5 billion EURO and the company barely made a profit last year http://company.ktm.com/fileadmin/cor...Q1_2012_EN.pdf

I don't think KTM had to promise them anything. Marek did what he thought was the right thing to do, to help a fellow KTM rider (I'm sure he got a blessing from Orlen Team manager ).

Ned the more you can tell us about the yzf would be awesome.

For example - do they have a custom gearbox ?

It's fascinating to think its equivalent of a crf450r leading the Dakar.

Why didn't they wait for the efi wrf to come along?

And wasn't that a very short "unimportant" stage very early in the rally?

Yes, the second one is excellent! Having fun, down-to-earth, right out of the garage! That's one of the benefits of living in the high desert of Southern California. I used to do the same thing when I lived up in the nearby mountains of Big Bear.

That's Al-Attiyahs car, note the Californian number plate.
