Alternate translation: Screw with your competitor's minds by putting your fitness in question, then kick their butts when race time comes.

That was my first reaction... builds good hype for the media, maybe messes with minds. I expect he'll make the start.

Maybe, maybe not, but one thing is for sure and that is if the shoulder is not 100% it won't hold up in this race, so why even try, it would end up in pieces again and the first part of 2013 screwed also.

At times the head has to rule the heart, I've witnessed this first hand and it just does not work - tough decision time coming up

DAKAR »

In a comeback which has already defied the odds, one of Australia’s most decorated off-road racers Ben Grabham will realise a major career ambition when he rolls off the start line of the 2013 Dakar Rally on January 5.

Watch the video as “Grabbo” discusses his thoughts on taking on the toughest and roughest rally race on the planet – DAKAR!

Damn I really hope he can mak it, but even if he does will he be able to pose a threat to the Despres? THink about Jonah and his injury, which stopped him in 2010...

It does not look good at all

So if Coma is not in, does that mean that Rodriguez gets alien status? I dont think anyone else is close enough.

Alien status is earned

I foresee him earning it over the next few years

El Pais out of Spain reporting that Coma is out. He's got a press conference tomorrow but the press cannot ask questions and the Spanish press is fighting over who will report it. All the while a reporter from El Pais dropped the bombshell early.
