I suspect there was some hot headed individuals determining what was going to happen and less of the typical honda Japanese approach of testing testing testing.

Not from what I understand - test test and test until proved, none of this, it should, it did, it will

The evidence does not support that unfortunately.

Welcome to a day of useless trackers.

Hey Etienne, just tell us who won in 2 weeks or so.

Still very much work in progress I would say, the proved/proven bit may not yet have been achieved

Back to racing and a fascinating day and days to come

I can't say a one bad word about Honda, though I was loyal to KTM my whole life.

They got together bike in under 4 months and racing Dakar 6 months after the decision was made.

I know most of the Husqvarna mechanics, how long has BMW / Husky been there ?? Even last Dakar the bike was still prototype, they were welding frames, they had issues with rear hub retainer, tower cracked ..

I really still hope Helder can win this year, it would be fantastic .. even that my rider is Ulle.:)

From that point of view totally correct - Helder and Sam were sat on a bloody clay model in Japan last June

Coming up on 1 hour 15 minutes since chaleco took the start... 39 km's to WP1 (if it's not an ASO'les timing glitch) means LESS than a 30 km/h average...

That's technical/tough terrain in dakar terms!
