It's already been announced that Michael Metge will be CD's water carrier for Dakar. Verhoeven has a two year deal, but his is with Yamaha Europe which runs as a slightly different entity than Yamaha France.

From David Reeve's FB page:

"Well, I finally waded my way through the entry application on the ASO website for the Dakar, and hopefully all of David and the bikes relevant information is on there. Some of it was in French, so David may well find he has been entered into the truck class for all I know. But I think it is all there, and a portion of the entry fee has been paid in..... so come on and support your Zambian. (G)"

No probs - if after the favourites you want to take over from Pyn or Manuel and contribute to the F5 ivers you will be welcome and supported, I'm sure -

Mind you, Manuel will be there even if he is on a lama :

CDP from a Redbull story:

"If this turns out to be my last contract to ride on two wheels at the Dakar then I want to make sure that I go out in the right way and stay competitive. . . .

"Ive worked hard to become fluent in English and Spanish but joining Yahama Motor France really feels like a homecoming. In the past I have always worked in very multi-national teams but now Ive joined a team that is predominantly French. It will be interesting to see what impact the ability to explain exactly what I am after in my own language will have on the development and set up of the bike."

Is that aimed at Sam?

Didn't get to speak with him before he flew as I was away and he was in Italy last week.

He will be on Facebook and twitter so contactable whilst he is there, but I'm sure there will be a few posts on the adventures

Any inkling as to whether HRC will have any new bikes or bike parts for him to test or is this Sam testing with JCR separately from HRC?

No, as far as I understand this is a personal adventure/training as a guest of Johnny/JCR, nothing to do with the HRC programme
