I think it comes from an older project, if I remember well also tested with Beta engines...

Same guy. Fernando Prades is also the "father" of the MI1. That's why...

That's an awesome short.

At one point in the movie, I thought "ooohh, that's a crash" as he tipped the rallybike into the sand. Nope, that was executing the plan.

So excited for him in this next stage.

When I saw that bike last month, I had hoped it would give me a glimpse of the new KTM. However Kurt's practice bike looked to be just that, cobbled together old bits. It even had a rear fuel cap with Despres' name on it! I'm really looking forward to seeing him on the new bike being as how it is rumoured to be lighter. I hope to ask if he has been on the new bike when I see him next month.

This is great news for racing in general. Having Kurt win a Dakar is going to result in more interest and hopefully cheaper products for the rest of us in the long run.

Ha ha, that piece of public news certainly slipped under my radar, I wonder when he talked about series if it meant the 6 rounds of the "world championship"?

Mind you it will be interesting to see what happens with Pharoans this year what with all the issues in Egypt - my company pulled all our staff out and haven't given the all clear to go back as yet.

Morocco is only a week or so after though and there is a lot of interest there!

I even found that small strip of pavement where he parked his truck at 0:12 in the vid.

Caselli pulled over a one minute lead on the 2nd place ride of David Pearson before he crossed the checkered flag to earn the victory and clench his third consecutive Hare & Hound Championship. Pearson, aboard a KTM, as well as Factory FMF/KTM rider Ivan Ramirez joined Caselli on the podium finishing 2nd and 3rd overall. The three riders made it an all KTM podium sweep.

“It feels really great to clench the championship a round early. It is a great way to end the season. I am happy I was able to get another championship for the FMF/KTM Team before I switch over to rally racing,” stated Caselli.

The champ will not attend the final Hare & Hound event as he will head to a World Rally round for practice and a team photo shoot for his 2014 debut as a Factory rider for the Red Bull KTM Rally Team.

“So many people have helped me along the way in my career and I want to thank each of them for their contribution to my success. I can’t wait for the next step in this journey, remarked Caselli.

Yep, political unrest cited as the main cause.
