Yep, I went for a ride in the snow. I should get studded tires for that though.

Congats to everyone we've cheered on and to the F5 team for making this such an enjoyable experience.

We've sort of come together like one big Dakar family. We've laughed, cried, cheered and even learned a bit about snooker together

Until next year, be well and ride safe. Hopefully I'll meet up with some of you on the trail if you get over this way.

and special thanks to Baldy for letting us trash the place for 2 weeks

Racer from the Birch Bradlom so take care of a new historical maximum native from beneath the Tatra Mountains to the traditional desert adventure, though improved by one place last year's fifth place Stefan Svitko.

"I'm very happy. These for my success is a great bunch, Jaroslav Berna mechanic and masseur Marian loop started working everything around me. Cared for me perfectly, even if I have to commend the mechanic I do about a lot of work, because the bike worked flawlessly, " Ivan Jakes told TASR.

For it was a sort of sixth start on the toughest endurance rally in the world, and the second time it finished, the finish came in 2009 to 43 place.

Experienced Slovak competitor appearing on his 2013 Dakar Rally positively surprised. Best to lead in the 8th stage, which finished in third place. A day later, the ninth stage, moved into fourth place and ongoing, this position has not let go of hands. Until the last moment even attacking third place Chilean Francisco Lopez.

Above rider Ress Adventure Team after their fantastic result at the finish number to receive congratulations, not only from their friends, but also competitors.

"I got 150 text messages from family and friends and still further added," Jakes told.

"Almost all of the top ten riders congratulated me. I'm happy that I have not lost the tip and that I achieve a result that no one expected. I'm Already among them, have been taken, register. Already looking forward to another year of the Rally Dakar, although details addressed. now I have to rest well at first, not so much physically as mentally, for the last three days, I was very nervous about the pressure that I keep at least fourth place. Those two were in front of me with my bike unassailable " admitted at the end.




Thanks Brodo for such a respectful comment. I would only add that this is the best result in the moto category by any Slavic rider ever.

Anyway, I have to say that I have enjoyed this year Dakar the most. Without trying to be disrespectful to any teams, bikes or riders, KTM again proved to have the best team. As Brodovic and some of you already commented here, Dakar is not about stage victories, about frantic dune riding, jumps, the highest speeds, it is about endurance, experience as well as luck, and the fastest in the finish after 14 days wins.

To me there are a few things which I don't understand:
- why Yamaha is not able to put together a team like KTM? Does it mean that Dakar is rather a low priority to them compared to Moto GP?
- whether Honda with only one year spent on their rally bike development, meant seriously their comments on attacking the Dakar title? It is good to have ambitious plans and goals, they did a great job but still will need to work harder.
- why BMW group puts a shine on their rather second tier brands, meaning Mini and Husqvarna. If this was the normal course of business, Husaberg would be celebrating 12 consecutive victory.

if any of you have more details on the Yamaha YZ tuning, please share it with us. I stil can't get my head around the exhause pipe loop over the swing arm.

That loop is apparently there to compensate for the fact that the exhaust port of the cylinder is facing rearwards instead of the usual forwards. Therefore the midpipe needs to be longer so that the optimum resistance vs. flow quota can be achieved.

And BTW - we're not quite done yet with this thread! There's still the coverage from the podium ceremony on Europort 1 tonight. ;)

22:55 (UTC/GMT), so you haven't missed anything yet. And as it is right now it looks like the underdog in the snooker match is hitting back. =/

One hundred per cent finish in Dakar 2013

One hundred per cent finish in Dakar 2013La Serena – Santiago SS14 final stage 122 km liaison – 346 km special – 158 km liaison
After having covered 8,420 kilometres on all kinds of terrain throughout 14 hard stages, from Peru to Chile passing through Argentina, Helder Rodrigues, Javier Pizzolito and Johnny Campbell finished today’s final stage reaching the target: Santiago.
The protagonists of the 2013 Dakar had to maintain their concentration for the very last 346 km of a fast stage on stony and hard ground. Only 53 seconds separated Helder Rodrigues, fourth, from stage winner Chaleco Lopez who finished ahead of Faria and Barreda. With Javier Pizzolito,15th and Johnny Campbell 21st, Team HRC celebrated two riders in the top ten overall with Rodrigues and Pizzolito in 7th and 8th place respectively and Johnny Campbell 40th, while
Cyril Despres sealed his fifth Dakar title.

Having the complete team at the end of the toughest rally in the world was the result of perfect team work with the three Team HRC riders, helping and supporting each other, stage after stage.
When the project started six months ago, the challenge was to be at the starting blocks in Lima with a completely new team and a new machine. Team HRC engineers worked very hard to prepare a competitive machine and on the 5th of January Helder Rodrigues, Javier Pizzolito and Johnny Campbell set off for the 2013 Dakar on board of their CRF 450 Rally.

In a race where a navigation mistake or a small mechanical failure can spoil the whole result, some fuel issues on the second and third days made Team HRC riders lose valuable time and the contact with the first riders. Despite that, Helder Rodrigues, Javier Pizzolito and Johnny Campbell continued to fight and recover positions.

Rodrigues was ready to attack on stage 11 to close the gap from the front runners, when a branch caught a wire of the machine, ripping it out and stopping his machine. It was a small problem that had big consequences as Helder had given an incredible performance that would have allowed him to make a big step forward towards the podium.
Team mate Pizzolito gave also a great performance. Javier was very good at preserving the machine and his condition, riding with a constant pace throughout the whole rally on the same engine.

Johnny Campbell couldn’t take advantage of his experience due to a mechanical problem on the third stage that made him lose more than 3 hours, but he scored the team’s best result with a great second place on the 8th stage. Unfortunately a crash the following day compromised his second part of the race, but Johnny continued until the end despite the intense pain from suspected broken ribs.

Helder Rodrigues SS14 4th +0.53”, 7th overall: “It was a great challenge and an honour for me to be part of this project and bear the Honda colours on the Dakar. I cannot be happy with my results in terms of my final position because with this team and this machine we had the potential to fight for the podium. We don't have to forget that this is a young project and we couldn’t test as much as we would have liked. We had some bad luck and also some fuel issues on the second and third stage that spoiled our result but the team has worked hard and the bike has improved a lot stage after stage. I’m very satisfied that we are all here in Santiago and that the team is very motivated to continue this experience”.

Javier Pizzolito SS14 15th +4’11”, 8th overall: “I’m very satisfied to have finished the Dakar and even happier of the 8th position in the overall classification. After last year unlucky incident where I suffered from a broken femur and elbow, I had to train very hard to prepare this year event. The machine proved to be really reliable as I rode the whole event with one engine. We are very excited and motivated to continue this amazing project”.

Johnny Campbell SS14 21st +6’01”, 40th overall: “This is a brand new team we worked very hard together to get to the finish. Dakar Rally is about keeping the body and the bike together, it was very hard for me after the crash on the 8th stage. It was challenging and hard at the same time, for me to return to racing after 5 years out and to finish this tough rally you need a 100% dedicated preparation. It was a dream come true to race the Dakar with this team and help with bike development”.

Katsumi Yamazaki, Team HRC Director: “We reached our first target which was to have all the machines get to the end of the rally. It’s the result of great team work, everyone in the team has contributed with a common target in mind. It’s a young project and with 6 months of work we never expected to win, even if we hoped for it, and we have fought hard to get the best possible result. We have faced several issues during the rally and fixed them. In a very competitive race with strong rivals and 14 demanding stages, we have gained an incredible amount of data and experience that will be extremely useful to continue the development of the CRF 450 Rally to return stronger and make a bike capable of winning in 2014. I want to thank Helder, Javier and Johnny, the team members and all our sponsors and partners for their great work and support”.
