Just realised that I will be in that exact location in three weeks time for a good two weeks riding

I mean the location with the Western Town, not the second half when the bikes changed and the sand became orange (Morocco) ;-)

The property master and continuity editors on the production crew got the axe at the post production meeting for that one...

I believe that the first part was shot second in the south of Spain the Monday after Merzouga and the second part shot first a few days before the Morocco Rally

About his bike at Morocco/MErzouga rallyes, Botturi says it was the bike used by Goncalves (and maybe another rider? have to listen to interview again later) in two previous Cross Country Rallies, and he discovered this only after his return from Morocco (where of course he was not in fight for any title). The reason was Speedbrain team was testing new materials in view of the Dakar 2014 (as Balkan Boy wrote!). But of course if you have more info that Botturi himself please let us know
I don't know the full make up of Botturi's set up but I did hear from Chavo that while he uses the full Speedbrain offering (bivouac, mechanic, etc...) Botturi is off separate with his own, non-Speedbrain mechanic, his own camp, etc... I'm sure they share a lot of parts, but I didn't gather that there was much interaction between Botturi and the rest of the riders using Speedbrain's services.

Those responsible for sacking the editors, have been sacked.

Surely the deal between Casteu and KTM was in place before Kurts accident at Baja on the weekend...?

In the youtube interview David made at the EICMA expo almost two weeks ago (Nov 6) he alludes to his discontinued co-operation with yamaha, his plans for a new ride/new team at Dakar 2014 etc.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3kRnr...ature=youtu.be

The press (never ones to let a good humanitarian story go to waste) perhaps sieze on the opportunity to highlight Davids return/defection to the KTM ranks.

Perhaps he was already working on a satellite deal similar to that which Chaleco brokered last year? With circumstances as they are, I can well imagine KTM might perhaps step up the level of support that casteu is provided at the rally (now with Kurts untimely departure, his bike an material will no doubt be put to good use by the experienced and likeable frenchman).

But I find it hard to fathom that all this has been put together in the last three days?

Whatever the case, I hope the black armband and Kurts spirit ride with David at this years Dakar.

Well said Troy, it is hard to beleive that the KTM would close such a deal in the last three days.

Agree.

My guess is that Casteu was lining up a semi-factory ride with KTM. Having him step up into a full factory ride to support Coma makes sense.

Or perhaps I'm reading in to this too much, and the factory ride is still available.

now that I think about it he raced a KTM 450rr at the last rally in SA, but the euro web story makes it seem like it was brokered in the last few days.

Yeah, I was sure I'd seen something about switching to KTM a little while back.

The sad sad loss of Kurt might secure Ruben Faria (who I heard was under pressure inside KTM after Cyril left) a bit of a future at KTM for 2014-2015... Still the underdog..
