Here's a fun fact from the start list:

Berglund family of Sweden has more entrants then the USA.

And another "F5amily Team"....

#75 Llewelyn Sullivan-Pavey
#76 Simon Pavey

Interesting to note that Llewelyn has entered as an Aussie even though as far as I am aware he was born in the UK and has lived here all his life but obviously with Aussie parents he has that right. Dad Simon has of course entered as an Aussie because he is!

The Brit count is rather low this year with only

#6 Sam Sunderland (yeah, yeah we know he actually lives in a sandy place)

#104 Chris Cork (Corky) follow him HERE

And interestingly #103 David Reeve is listed as a Brit even though he is from Zambia and certainly rode the 2013 Dakar as a Zambian???

In !!!

It's CS Santosh's first Dakar i believe so i'll be closely following my fellow country man and the first Indian competitor in Dakar. Go !!! rider no. 59

pity about his name though, looks like they insisted on having the full name typed out in the list. Should be a mouthful and a test of tongue dexterity for any interviewers esp spanish/frenchenglish speaking ones

Vicks, you are not kidding!

CHUNCHUNGUPPE SHIVASHANKAR is certainly a mouthful!

I can see why he sticks to CS!

Other notable tongue twisters include:

NASER COLOMBO CRISTIAN PATRICIO (CHL)

ERRAZURIZ ESPINOZA FRANCISCO JOSE (CHL)

VAN HEERTUM MELCHIOR XAVERIUS MARIA (NLD)

And of course our old
favourite Mongolian....

Yep, nice number. I have some experience with a "101" and I figure there's nothing we won't be able to get around, through or over!

My Land Rover 101.


My KTM #101:


46 days to go!

So to add to Armageddons list:

Interesting numbers

2015 vs 2014

KTM 88 vs 63
Yamaha 28 vs 42
Honda 17 vs 32
Kawasaki 8 vs 5
Sherco 5 vs 4
Husqvarna 4 vs 2
GasGas 3 vs 9
Beta 2 vs 2
Husaberg 2 vs 0
Suzuki 2 vs 5
BMW 0 vs 2
Speedbrain0 vs 5
TM 0 vs 2

RRP 1 vs 0

This is very important, as Rally Raid Products had to become a manufacturer to get the LC4-50 type-approved to be eligible for entry! (even though it's still marked 'KTM' on the entry list!)

Along with John himself who will be personally working on the LC4-50 for Carl, Donna and Martin from Torque Racing will be supporting 4 riders in total at Dakar this year:

Chris Cork : #104
Mikael Berglund : #148
Carl Hagenblad : #159
Ralf Molander : #163

Mikael's brother Anders (#149) will be riding Malle Moto on a Husaberg this year, as will Guillaume Martens (#158) on a KTM 450 - hardcore!

Let's get this party started eh?

Jenny xx
