Off topic a little; I'm not sure Faria is as fast as Depres (or say, Helder) but then Cyril started as a water carrier with KTM. For sure Faria deserves a decent shot.
Its all interesting stuff, but I believe Ruben is older than Cyril, so unless there is a forced space it seems unlikely that KTM will go that route in the medium to long term, but in the short term for 2014 who knows or what the next weeks are going to unveil?

Not 100% yet but from what I hear, Cyril's contract with KTM is over and the details with HRC are being finalized.

I don't hate Despres at all. I respect how hard he prepares and performs, and I'm happy for him that he won again. But I wasn't rooting for him.

But if he's racing the Dakar next year on a Honda, I suspect I'll find myself rooting for him. Wow, I didn't see that coming.

Will he have Honda/Red Bull sponsorship?

Dont hate him, just dont trust him.

How many dollars would his contract with HRC be annually based on winning dakar? $US2m?

I think Cyril just tweeted that he's done with 2 wheels in the Dakar, it's 4 wheels from here forward.

Do you think his ego (professional competitiveness) will let him quit on 5 wins when SP had 6 on 2 wheels? Accordingly I would suspect that if he is leaving KTM then the rumours about KTM continuing with a factory team in the Dakar may be true though?

If I remember rightly he signed a 2 year deal in 2011 which would expire later this year, so maybe there are a few open doors

That would be a total shame is he does go to a cage.. the battle needs to go on a couple more years between he and Coma..

Laugh Hook line and sinker...

Mr Despres I salute you... (or at least your publicists at Rouge Toro )

Whoever it was in your media circus, who picked up on the "murmurs" around the cyber webby prior to (and during) the Dakar and turned it into the above media coup...
Bravo!!! You've F5'd the f5-ings f5'ers for f5%'s sake... And for a billy cart race...!


That clip is one of my all time favourites now... I even laugh at the way that Cyril sheds his (newly woven) "good guy" persona when he is in the cart...
reaming the mechanics to push/go faster etc. Brilliant...


and as for Mr Doyle...? Well, he got ya' mate...

Been out of the loop for three days and Cyril Despres retires from bikes and heads to cars. So I was wrong on HRC but right on leaving KTM.

Quite frankly, it's a move I didn't expect just yet for him.

My French is not near well enough to translate the press conference. Can anyone summarize the announcement? goo.gl/CcTDs

So is it a joke stunt for a cart race for Red Bull or is Cyril really retiring from riding competitively? Is he just racing Caisses Savon?

Is my French that bad that I can't tell the difference? Apparently so. 'oh

Alright, so the more I hack through translation, the more this looks to be a one off stunt race for Red Bull. Sorry all. I punked myself.

@Duberino It looks like it. I've missed any news due to endless work meetings and was surprised to see this without English translation.

OK, so forget my Despres posts. Seems a fake stunt for a one off go cart race. My fault, no coffee, early morning, blah, blah, blah...

... like you said; "hook line and sinker..."

okay... look's like we have our first nominee for the 2013 F5 AWARD...

Don't worry, it could have happened to anyone (not ), but that first part of the clip, to be honest... did look pretty legit...

What did we learn from this everyone...? Well, as Gordon bldy Ramsay always says; "always check your f%&ing suaces..."
