Judging by the team management and strategies employed by both the HRC and Speedbrain teams at this years Dakar, the combination of HRC/Speedbrain while exciting with some top level alien talent riders will be under-cooked compared to the KTM team still and expecting them to dislodge KTM at 2014 Dakar will still be a big ask !

It really depends on how you look at things

They are not running the traditional 1 + 1 pairings, so any one of 3?

Very true. We do tend to get a little excited when we actually know the riders involved.

As I hear it, Henk essentially goes back to running the HT Rally Raid team. He's putting together a big Honda quad effort for 2014.

Perhaps in some eyes if Cyril goes away from bikes I lose credibility, but I think most of the rumors I've posted have flushed out. I'll admit when I'm wrong though. It happens.

It's official

http://www.motoverte.com/site/scoop-...ha--72664.html

It is now official after months of waiting, Cyril Despres signed with Yamaha Motor France to compete in the Dakar. A two-year contract unites the five times winner of the Dakar and brand to forks. Clearly stated objective: victory!

Since the last edition, we knew that Yamaha was looking for a top driver able to prevail after the departure of Helder Rodrigues at Honda. We also knew that Cyril was looking for a handlebar after separation with KTM. If Honda Husqvarna options and even clothing were maintained trails, the Yamaha option was obviously the most realistic. The experience of blue in this area is well established, the latest version of the YZ-F Rally is ultra-efficient and the French will be able to get a sixth victory in the next edition. A beautiful union in which some Peterhansel is not completely foreign ...

If nothing else, this makes the fight at the front so much more intriguing come January.

Just imagine the marketing potential if Cyril equals Stephane's wins on a blue bike. Yamaha wet dream.

C'mon, let's have your waterboy guesses. My money is on Pain.
