Almost got a shock from reading this:
Quote:
  • 13:49 Bikes: Beltrami back in business

    Against all odds, the Italian has apparently managed to repair his engine and is heading towards the start of the special, about 300 km away, at a normal pace.
  • 13:46 Bikes: Beltrami in a tight spot

    Francesco Beltrami's engine has broken down 40 km into the link section. The Italian's Honda 450 has left him stranded near an urban area. The experienced rider's future in this Dakar seems gloomy.
Nice dude, meet him during the Australian Safari 2012. Very limited English, but I learnt plenty of Italian to communicate with him. He also had bad luck there with his engine. I did a cylinder replacement on his Honda after his breather hose of the cylinder head came loose and sucked in dirty air causing him to lose compression. Let's hope his motor holds up!

Someone's been sawing away and Chicherit's driveshaft I hear?



Maybe he just had to take a number two

Evening all (9:30pm here in Perth, Western Australia). I've been hiding for a while but Dakar will always bring me to the surface. I'll be watching closely.
