I think "speculation" being the key word. Also I think there is an overestimation of the French connection as Cyril has little historical connection to Yamaha.

We'll have a spare second seat on the Rally Raid LC4-50 team... we could certainly do with a few Euro's towards the campaign!

Funny how the press get it wrong - the picture is at Yas for the ADDC, but the reference is to Quinn Cody, who wasn't entered there but in Qatar 2 weeks later - that was Speedy's bike

I thought something felt out of of place, so that would make sense. I wonder if it was an assumption on the editor's part or just a mistake? I'm tempted to write to the editors but it's not my info... Maybe it's the bike that Cody was given for Qatar two weeks later?

Apparently Speedbrain brought 2 bikes to Abu Dhabi and moved them over to Qatar. There was mention that Quinn's pace was somewhat hampered by Barreda's set up since Barreda is some 50 pounds lighter. That tells me that Quinn used Barreda's bike from Abu Dhabi in Qatar but either way, a little journalistic double checking should have the editor's clearly seeing "Goncalves" on the seat and "Yas Marina" in the background.

Gerrard Farres has close call

Today at 11am in the morning I had a serious accident when entrenava with the road bike. I hit a buggy front mind a change of esting. Luckily today was not my day and I can tell because when I crashed into the front glass of the helmet buggy impact braking like a watermelon splitting. I lost consciousness and I have had to sew 3 holes in the head and back and God willing tomorrow saldre Hospital.
Thank the person of the buggy all your help, stopping and calling has help me urgently to Catalan police and medical services have been super fast and I have tried to wonder. Many thanks to them also. The truth is that today I really looked at the importance of bike helmet, as it seems to do nothing but today has saved my life. A big kiss for my family and friends and now I have made ​​you suffer over the account and strong hug to all!








Hoy a las 11h de la mañana he tenido un grave accidente cuando entrenava con la bicicleta de carretera. He chocado frontal mente con un buggy en un cambio de resante. Por suerte hoy no era mi dia y puedo contarlo ya que cuando he chocado contra el cristal delantero del buggy el casco a frenado el impacto partiéndose como una sandía. He perdido el conocimiento y me han tenido que coser 3 agujeros en la cabeza y espalda y si dios quiere mañana saldre del Hospital.
Agradecer a la persona del buggy toda su ayuda, parando ha ayudarme y llamando urgentemente a los mossos d'esquadra y a los servicios medicos que han venido super rapido y me han tratado de maravilla. Mil gracias a ellos tambien. La verdad es que hoy he visto muy de cerca la importancia que tiene el casco de bici, ya que parece que no hacen nada pero hoy me ha salvado la vida. Un beso muy fuerte para mi familia y amigos ya que hoy los he hecho sufrir mas de la cuenta y un Fuerte abrazo a todos!!!

Indeed it was Barreda's bike from DC, pretty much just swapped the seat and increased the steering angle (QC wanted more, but it was hard on the limit already )

Please, oh please let there be some meat to this rumor. OK, I'll go with Husky having a new Rallye team even without CD.
