Manny is in way to go!

Well on that note I'm in also, done in, totally exhausted and ready to get some spare hours back for more the more mundane life duties, work for one!

It's been a hard 2 weeks but a blast and today has really extended the race by a day, still a roller coaster at the top end.

The results, well not predicted by me, other than being in the 90% of the CDP for número uno. Faria and Chalico, fully deserved and about time.

Not going to ramble on, so will catch up with you on the close down of this thread, the "Honda does Dakar 2 - The continuation" and other threads during the coming months associated with the 2013 CCRWC ( Cross Country Rally's World Championship).

http://www.fim-live.com/en/sport/cro...allies/events/

Will be having a team meeting in Dubai next month to sort out the tactics for the new year and dakar 2014.
Mxmum needs more fuel on board for 2014, but suspect that we will see a much more active involvement, after all Sam will be on his third Dakar by then, but will practically still be a rookie with only stage one and a 7th last year under his belt and then STATORGATE followed by best timed bike test of 2012 in California - not only did it cost HRC their # 2 & 3 riders, it's hard to see what was really learnt.

Sam's casts are off now, physio is underway and back to training for him with the Desert Challenge on the 5 th of April and focussed and working towards that now.

No news on his progress at present, but get well Philipe.

Once again well done to all the F5ers and to Pyn, Manny, Chavo and and of course Luis, to Team HCR - 6/10 can and must do better.
Cyril and team KTM, just a class act, Speedbrain will be disappointed and expected much more, but will be back also.

The 123 bike finished 14th?

Sounds like the Dakar organization needs a little help with the seeding.

I don't remember exactly but I think I told them about my site years ago. I'm not sure though, but in my stats I saw traffic coming from their site every year. Very nice to get their feedback. Thanks all for making this year a succes again!
