You are looking at 1 & 2, all things being equal. Yamaha are more than due with Rod and Shane.

Bring on Safari.

If you want to win Safari, you will need to get past Jake. Easy Eh?

I think you've about covered it Sylvia... Todd, Jake, Rod or Shane (in that order is prolly how I'd pick 'em). The # 1 plate will mpost likely fall to one of these four from either the GHR Honda team or The Yamaha Desert team.

Matt Fish on the KTM is also a solid top three contender... but i note he is not on the CPW squad?

Looking forward to the Safari and your pics Sylvia.

You're right about the placings I think, I would be surprised if the Smith boys are not on top again this year.

Any chance you could get some close ups of Todd and Jakes bikes ? Not too close up I'm just interested to see if they are running the longer swing arm for Safari and the general overall build. I love the Hondas and mine are starting to look very similar

Cheers Neil

I hope he doesn't mind me mentioning this but Hein Eigenhuis, no 39 Team Moruya is an inmate here, worth keeping an eye on.

I wish him well, he's a hell of a good rider and a bloody nice bloke too
