These companies are involved mainly because they are also fans. But, if they see an actual return on investment, they'll keep doing it. Word gets around and sponsors beget more sponsors. Who knows, maybe someday one of them will help pay some of your rally expenses too!

Could not quite pull the trigger on a whole case , but I did find a local shop that had it .

Will be back for more because this one is being given to a benefit to be raffled off this Saturday .

I'm way late to this party, but I got an email from MX1west and saw Ned's name on it.

Definitely going to have to buy a shirt to support Ned.

Dave and the bikes arrived with Desert Rose at the rally HQ hotel early this morning... we're just waiting for the riders now!



I'll be updating on behalf of Ned, Jean-Luc and the rest of the RMS/IYSK Wine supported riders throughout the rally on the Tuareg Media thread here: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=865985

And will of course cross-post any choice morsels here too!

Oh, goodie, more wine to go find.

Update from scrutineering:

I caught up with the whole IYSK US contingent earlier this afternoon as they were busy getting all seven bikes through scrutineering... this is Dave wrestling with the mousse machine:



Before recovering with a nice cup of English tea (courtesy of Patsy Quick and the Desert Rose team parked next door):



Once Ned was through scrutineering, we headed out into the nearby dunes (well, dunettes really) for a few photos:







For the latest info on the IYSK team and the rest of the rally, please check in on the Official Coverage thread here: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=865985

KLIM recently caught up with one of our favorite rally-riding addicts for some insight into his next adventure. Read on to get the inside scoop on what “Neduro” is up to this spring.

Ned, you’re racing another rally? I thought you retired after Dakar…

I'm retired from high pressure!
