And he says, he is racing alone with his own team, no teammate.
So, KTM could be possible, let's wait and see.
I know it now, it's announced at the Dakar bulletin ( Dakar homepage )
David Casteu is back on a KTM and member of the factory team.

On two wheels, KTM's reign has lasted for twelve editions. However, the departure of Cyril Despres last spring deprives the Austrian team of one its trump cards. The team nevertheless maintains a good chance of continuing its domination, with a group headed by Marc Coma. The ambitious Catalan rider, who returns to the Dakar after a dislocated shoulder in 2013, wants to make up ground on his rival by adding a fourth trophy to his collection. He will be well accompanied in KTM by three former podium winners: Rubens Faria and Chaleco Lopez, respectively 2nd and 3rd in 2013, and also David Casteu, whose two previous experiences at the handlebars of a KTM saw him finish in the Top 5 (2nd in 2007, 4th in 2009). Naturally, KTM's number of victories will be directly challenged by Yamaha, whose YZF 450 already showed its pace last year. The five-time winner of the race has taken on the development of the machine during the year, and sets off on a challenge in the style of Valentino Rossi: To try and win a title after changing team. The official Honda team, which had its learning curve in the 2013 Dakar, has also pushed out the boat in its recruitment in its attempt to chase victory: with Helder Rodrigues, it can now count on the ambition of world champion Paolo Gonçalves and the proven speed of Joan Barreda.

If there is anyone who I would like to see get KC's bike, it's him. Like Kurt, that guy always has a smile, even when his body is bent and he's walking cause the bike is toast.

To me, he embodies what I love about Dakar. Just like Kemal Merkit.

The 2014 start list was posted on previous page... post 50... "205" is a gag penalty (for information already posted) it's just a freindly rivalry amongst the f5 freaks on here at dakar time... it's just a laugh - stick around you'll catch on... or scratch your head wondering?

This year I hope to see David get a podium or a top 5 at least. He has been trying for long enough now! oui?

We need new Internet links if possible also, for those of us without it on satellite, also FR 2, 3 & 4, as the links from last year stopped working a few months back

Managed to get all the cycling through the summer though

And that's a second penalty for not finding the rules in the 14,000 post official 2013 Dakar thread.
