3weeks to go to the Desert Challenge and somebody has a statement to make!
Is Sam confirmed and cleared for Abu Dhabi?

I hope so and I see he was cleared to get back on the bike not too long ago, I am just not sure if that translates into clear to race a multi-day rally for HRC.

He has been back on the bike about 10 days or so now, but putting the miles in to catch up for lost time - riding every other day off road for several hours will see him race ready

No marathons, just a triathlon and plenty of running, gym and cycling for fitness - that side of it won't be an issue either, there won't be too many who can match him for that!

Both arms have healed well, just a bit of slight soreness in the bad one, but nothing to worry about, it's at full strength and no issue for racing.

As for determination, well, with the events of the last few months there isn't anyone in rally who will match him for that, he will just need to keep his concentration and focus as much as anything else.

3 weeks to go now and I believe the rider list will be published the evening of the 24th, so all eyes will be on whether a certain CDP is riding and for whom.
I'm not sure if he has ever been to Abu Dhabi, it's always been Coma's domain, in fact I believe they rarely went head to head outside the Dakar, last years Morocco perhaps being one of the rare exceptions?

Trust me, there was little or nothing he could do in Ca to avoid it

He has also confirmed he didn't enjoy the experience, but you would know all about that

Was it disclosed how he and Zanol crashed during testing in Califronia?


While we're on the subject,
Has Zanol recovered at all? What were his injuries?

As far as I know it was a normal "accident" if there is such a thing, the injuries were to the head, he is at home recuperating but no idea of the status. He replied to a tweet from Pizzolito the other day, but nothing more than what is in public domain, so very little really.

Dont I know all about it

You can tell Sam I've made it a new years resolution: No more crashing. Hope he joins me with that resolution.

Really looking forward to see how he does later this month.

A freak occurrence - a "foreign object" prevented the bike from turning whilst doing 120 or so, the result wasn't pretty

I do not know if this is the place to put this news.

Peterhansel go back to 2 wheels (in a Yamha, obviously) and finished 2nd in first round of the FIM world championship in Italian Baja!

Notonly his final position, but he was the only to figt for the light with italin Ruoso; and by doing that he was fastet than FIM regulars Botturi and Zanoti.

Impressive performance by Peterhansel!!!

See italianbaja.com for more details
