JC, HRC, and the Dakar

Wow, looks like HRC's first effort at the Dakar isn't going so well. JC doesn't appear to have even made it to the first waypoint this morning. That after all the fuel issues yesterday. Back to the drawing board I guess.

Its amazing how a team like Honda can absolutely dominate Baja and then do so poor in Dakar and a team like KTM can dominate Dakar and do so poorly in Baja.

All comes down to experience.

Experience, yes. But not putting enough fuel on the bikes, that's just stupid!

Yeah thats so bizarre from JCR too. The reason they win Baja every year is their pit management.

You can see him turn toward the helo for a second but he looks back. I think he was to shook up to take his focus off his path.

JC hasn't had the fuel problems that a few other Honda riders have had. I cann't figure out why HRC decided to go with less than 31L of fuel on board. Did they think KTM, and everyone else just rides around with 31L+ just because they like the extra weight. Sure, they haven't been to Dakar in a while, but there are plenty of dunes all around the world they could have tested fuel consumption out prior to the race??

They think they are running NC 700Xs and don't need large tanks.

I must have killed this thread. It has been dead for a day.

Another thing have you noticed the T-Mobile commercial keeps reducing the motorcycle time.
