Hope it's not a fatality, too many deaths as it is from last year.

Fingers crossed as well

Tuareg Rally Day 1 (Saturday March 9th 2013) summary - #75 Charlie Rauseo - Team RMS/IYSK Wines

In recent years Ex-Dakar rider Charlie Rauseo has primarily supported a number of US and North American riders with mechanical service assistance during the Dakar and other International rally events.

This year he decided to dust off his rally riding boots once again, together with one the USA’s perennial favorites - the mighty Honda XR650R - and entered the Tuareg Rally the old-school way - sleeping in a tent next to his bike and doing his own servicing for the duration, alongside the RMS supported IYSK Wine team riders.

Despite riding a big heavy kick-start only motorcycle, Charlie still had that ever-present smile on his face at the end of a long, hard day. “I probably got the most riding in of anyone who finished [in time] today” he grins - having made it to the final check with just five minutes to spare. “Of course I got it really stuck a couple of times” he continues “I mean really really stuck - it was so buried you couldn’t see the wheels!”

Certainly the heat of the day and the soft powder-like sand meant that when riders inevitably got stuck, recovery was particularly arduous for those on the bigger, heavier machines.

“I used up a lot of energy today” he admits “Basically I had to drag it out any way I could - even upside down, and then kick start it again - it really winded me. “The second time it happened was about half an hour before the cut-off, and I was six kilometers from the end of the stage. "I got the bike righted and pointing downhill, but then I just had to lie down on the sand... I really felt as if I was going to have a heart attack. "I had to yell at myself to get up and get going again in time to make the finish - it’s been a while since I’ve found myself in that position.”

Charlie Rauseo is part of the US rally team supported by Rally Management Services and If You See Kay Wines during the Tuareg Rally.

Stage result: not available at this time

Overall position: not available at this time

#75 Charlie Rauseo... digging those sandy socks!

Please do not speculate any further. The Organisation will be making an announcement this evening.

+1 Imagine how tough it must have been if he got in with only 5 minutes to spare!

Must have been sick trying to kick start that 650 after dragging it around out of the sand.

Tuareg Rallye 2013 - Sunday 10th March - Fatality

I have spoken with the media representative of the organisation, and in an effort to alleviate any concerns that friends and family of competitors on the rally may have, they have asked my to make the following announcement ahead of their official briefing this evening:

It is with great sadness that I can confirm that rider #25 - Wesley Beane (GBR) suffered a fatal accident earlier today during a special stage.



Further information will be released as appropriate.

J.

I had the good fortune of meeting Wesley at last years Tuareg. What a great guy and a great sense of humour. Rallysport has indeed lost another great competitor today. My thoughts go out to his family and friends. You will not be forgotten Wesley. R I P
