Could be a little more room on this one

Is Ben not staying on? - there seems to be no Aussie's on the bikes, so I guess it's Pyndon and Sam for you?

I see we have a Kiwi though - which side of the Great Divide are you on that one?

From the Honda web site -

Next race
The next race for the TEAM HRC will be the Merzouga Rally. Starts next October 21th from Erfoud and finishes October 26th. There are two of our riders entered: Hélder Rodrigues and Sam Sunderland.

So it looks like Goncalves is not running and may be savouring his double victory

The only Aussies on 2 or 4 then - no. 205, although Gary has certainly been there on 2

Best of luck everyone! Quite an entry list. Good warmup for my F5 fingers since I'm already scraping snow off the cage every other day here...

That is very interesting - presumably on the same bikes they ran in the Maroc? This is essentially a great 'Dakar' test - two week-long rallies back to back, with a rest day[off] in the middle... of course the combined overall race distance won't be quite as much as the Dakar, but nonetheless, it's going to prove the reliability and 'ride-ability' of the bikes over two weeks... nice.

Same bikes but probably new engines, although not confirmed.

This is an suumption based on a photograph the other day of an HRC guy carrying one and 2 more lined up on the truck.

At the time Speed was riding also, so 3 engines, 3 bikes - sort of made sense, especially as there were no swoops on the rally
