Speedbrain 450 RR is a really nice looking bike, but Chelco's Aprilla is still the best looking rally bike IMO.

Hmm, using my super intuitive sixth sense that reply makes me think that Sam has a place somewhere in all this uncertainty. His tweets sound quite relaxed and happy as well, not what you'd expect from someone about to be out of a ride.

A big thank you to Vane Vanesa (a “Fan” from Argentina), who put together this clip summarising my Dakar career to date. In 5 days’ time I will at last be able to announce a new and very exciting new chapter. There’s still plenty of pages to write. Watch this space!

I got that as a tweet too. Excited to see what Cyril has up his sleeve. I'm still betting four wheels.

So, if your hunch is correct that he will go to four wheels, there are some seats yet to be filled...- http://www.mfe-live.com/index.php/ho...le-dakar-2014q

According to my calendar, it should be about the same time as that other big announcement we've been hearing about...

OK, my pre-dick-tion for Cyril is he will announce that he will have his own team riding a KTM...

Or something equally as boring as that.

My money is also on that he'll choose a safe, comfortable option with a factory support.

Nothing like malle moto, back-to-the-roots for the Patron.
