Good luck with that. Since they bought the new cabin they're always up there skiing or hiking. He ain't gonna do shit for you.

HRC press release

Joan Barreda rides his Honda CRF450 RALLY to victory in the Rally Dakar after 25 years

Honda had proved its strength last October with the new CRF450 RALLY, winning both the Morocco Rally and the Merzouga Rally. Thus, the team has taken command of the first stage of the 2014 edition, after 25 years of absence.

It was back on 11th January 1989 when the official Honda HRC savoured victory for the last time. That was when Gilles Lalay took the fifteenth stage of the Paris-Tunisia-Dakar. Now, in the second year back in the event after a 24 year official absence, Joan Barreda has picked up a crucial first stage win on the CRF450 RALLY. After 25 years, Honda are back in the running.

It was a very early start for the Rally Dakar. The pack of riders headed off at four in the morning on a long 405 kilometre liasion that took them towards the vibrant city of Rosario for the start of the 180 km special.

Joan Barreda on the Honda CRF450 RALLY, got off to a storming start in the special, clocking up the fastest time of all the 175 riders at the first time-check, in this, the 2014 edition of the legendary Dakar. He would repeat the same feat at the end of the stage. Team-mate Paulo GonÁalves also kept up a cracking pace, holding on to fifth place at the close.

Sam Sunderlandís Honda debut at the Dakar was productive, taking ninth position. Javier Pizzolito finished 19th and Helder Rodrigues in 22nd.

Joan Barreda 1st 2:25'31 TEAM HRC
Itís been a great day. Iím really pleased for the first win with Honda, especially for the team that has worked so hard the whole year to produce this new bike. Iím really happy to have begun the Dakar like this. Today was a tough one. Few kilometres, but with a very difficult track full of rocks and very slippery. I managed to get off really well in the second part, keep up a good pace and get a result in the end.

Paulo Goncalves 5th +02'25 TEAM HRC
Itís been a long day, over 800 kilometres and 11 hours on the bike with a very tricky special. Very technical, where I had a lot of difficulties with the bike sliding around a lot. In the second half I quickened the pace and the ride was much better. Iím very pleased for Joanís victory, which is really good for us.

Sam Sunderland 8th +04'33 TEAM HRC
Weíve finished the first day. A very long special that for us started when we had to get up at 3.00 a.m. More than 800 kilometres and a long liaison too. It was a really intense ride throughout the special. I made a minor error at the beginning and maybe because I changed the settings that punished the rear brake excessively. But in spite of everything, it hasnít been that bad a stage.

Javier Pizzolito 19th +08'09 TEAM HRC
It has been a hard stage. Being the first stage, Iíd have thought that it would be more simple. A very sinuous mountain stage, that was very physically demanding. The bike was very well behaved, so letís see how we get on in tomorrowís stage, which should be very different from todayís.

Helder Rodrigues 22th +08'58 TEAM HRC
Today was a very difficult one for me, especially being the first of the Dakar. It was very technical with a lot of bends and you had to be really careful how you handled it. Iím not very happy with the result, but I was able to finish the stage, and you canít take any risks at the Dakar just for one stage.

Only 44 pages since last night? Too easy... Good to see Coma up there in second. Already a couple of the top guys crashing... Stage one is where you can win this thing right?!

"David (Reeve) is in. He has had a very good day and very cheerful and strong and says that he is comfortable. He would like to thank everyone for the support - it keeps him going.
He will change back to the standard KTM clutch tonight.
Sherry gave him a photo of Tom that he loves to bits and is up in his bedroom. A huge inspiration.
(For new fans, Tom Reeve is David's late father and the founder of the modern era of offroad and mx in Zambia, a true legend whose boots David has filled magnificently over the years)
The team has no wifi, so I have stopped bugging them and they are already preparing for tomorrow. I have let them know of all the support from you guys. Hopefully they will be able to connect tomorrow."

Column heading is "Team" but it shows bike model (except for the Escale brothers who are/were riding some sort of Suzukis).

Bike talk is all the best of course, but Rubby Talk is good anywhere.

So Uncle PackMule is having a life, he is missed.
