I also can't believe it that Honda will give their new developped engines to Speedbrain ???

What will happen when the Speedbrain bikes win over the Honda bikes ?

bad PR for the Honda guys i guess....

Confirmed contacts between Despres (now almost desp-e-res!) and Yamaha, what about Speedbrain?

Speedbrain will run in Honda HRC colours this season, win-win.

I dont see the need for Honda to run their own team. Cheaper to use a 3rd party and supply them with technology. Core business is selling technology for Honda, not running race teams. Why would you run such a small team anyways? Zero effort compared to MotoGP...

Who says the HRC bikes will be Speedbrain chassis and who says the Speedbrain bikes will have Honda motors?

I didnt. :)

I think Speedbrain will run the whole Honda effort. Frames and engines and Honda will provide tech backup. Honda will quit running their own team, which was stupid from the start.

I heard CD has bought Husaberg from KTM and he is using the old proven Speedbraun Rally Husky engine from last year Dakar because Speedbrain is now using Honda engines Dakar

Question Phd

I think if this musical bikes gets any more complicated I might need a phd to figure it out.

“Each new edition of the Dakar Rally brings flagrant violations of regulations set by the environmental impact assessment (EIA),” Montenegro said."

Sean Penn urges no Dakar Rally in Bolivia until US man freed



"Actor and humanitarian Sean Penn called Monday for the Dakar Rally to cancel its debut run in Bolivia unless an ailing American businessman being held under house arrest there is released.

"Ostreicher 'is the victim of an elaborate, high-level government extortion ring that has fleeced approximately $27 million worth of assets from the rice operation that he had been managing,' said Chris Smith, the panel's chairman, said.

"The international pressure could very well be precisely what the Bolivian president needs to be able to finally expel the malignant cancer of corruption that is killing both the Bolivian justice system and the thousands of innocent people like Jacob Ostreicher."


Bolivia lashes out at Sean Penn for proposing boycott of Dakar Rally over detained American

"Bolivia’s culture minister calls it actor-activist Sean Penn’s 'worst performance' ever. He isn’t talking about a movie.

"Minister Pablo Groux is slamming Penn’s proposal to a U.S. congressional subcommittee Monday that Bolivia be cut out of the Dakar motor sport rally unless it frees a U.S. citizen under house arrest two years after he was jailed without charge in a money-laundering probe."
As if the congressional committee has any say....
