I would come back and happily use the Beta Team again. Maybe just order a brand new bike though with them!

R on the left, X on the right.



But then again, the weld on Paulo's looks completely different as well.



Perhaps it's an older CRF frame?

I know, nerd central.

Left is a current r frame right is an x
Speedbrain bike looks like an 09 on crf450r frame.

Great work Ben !
I was half an hour behind you at this years condo, my first rally.
I suggested to my wife who is from Milan that maybe I should have a crack at this rally in 2015, based solely on how you've gone
Surprise surprise she's into it !
Thanks mate !

Highly recommend you do.

The organisers are great people and looked after me very well. All there accommodation they organised was perfect. No stuff ups which is always nice.

The roadbook was perfect which is a big plus also. I will be back for sure. Maybe do 2015 also?

Steve Collie used Jolly Honda and he seemed happy with them so that is an option also.

Cheers.

Good on ya Ben. I'm sure you learnt a few valuable lessons this year that will put you in good stead for a future go again. I know what you mean about the organisers at these overseas Rallys - they just love that we make the effort to go on their Rallys from way over here.

Juan Carlos has used Jolly this season too and has been quite pleased with them.

Second position to fifth: 35 seconds gap!
Coma did choose the best strategy: to make less mistakes than your opponents...
