    Dakar 2014 Officiell tråd

    Ursprungligen postat av Enduroadventure:

    "Enligt rykten är Despres på väg till Honda, en fet check med många Euros ska ha utdelats...

    Cyril Despres leaves KTM for new challenges"



    Lite mer info:



    After 12 years and 10 Dakar podiums, 5 of which were victories, Cyril Despres and KTM have jointly agreed to go their separate ways, leaving Cyril free to explore new challenges and new horizons.

    Cyril Despres

    “I have spent a large part of my career to date with KTM, so as you can imagine it wasn’t a decision that was taken lightly. They were great years, very fruitful, both professionally and personally, and I owe much to everyone at KTM , especially the ‘boss’ Stefan Pierer, whose enthusiasm for the sport of rally-raid matches my own. I would also like to say a big ‘thank you’ to Heinz Kinigadner and Head of Motorsport Pit Beirer and everyone in the rally department. When I arrived it was run by the much missed Hans Trunkenpolz, who taught me how to develop a rally bike, and whose work is now being very ably continued by Stefan Huber. Finally, I say a very fond farewell to my factory mechanic throughout all that time, Roland Bruckner, and my support rider during the last four Dakars, Ruben Faria, who I wish all the best for the future.

    Although I say goodbye to all these people, I am sure I will be seeing many of them again very soon, as, with the continued support of my long-time partner Redbull, I will most definitely be staying in the sport. It is a little too early to give any more details, suffice to say I am extremely motivated by the new challenge I am about to embark on and look forward to giving you further details in the very near future."

    All the best

    Cyril

    Hoppas verkligen att det blir Honda han går till och inte något tråkigt bilteam.

            Dakar 2014

            Saxat från motocrossactionmag.com

            The 2014 Dakar Rally is dropping its route through Peru for one that goes into Bolivia instead. The Dakar will still transit through Argentina and Chile in 2014. The 2014 Dakar Rally will have longer special stages, as well as several marathon stages (stages where only the competitor can do mechanical work on his machine, not the mechanics). The favored KTM team is Kurt Caselli, Marc Coma and Ruben Faria. Five-time winner Cyril Despres has yet to announce where and what he will be racing in 2014. It is rumored that Honda might sign Despres.

                      Skämt å sido, men det hade varit rätt läckert att se dina resultat med en hoj som håller och ett team som skiter ut $$$ *önskedrömmar*

                        Det verkar bli längre specialer och flera maratonsträckor i Dakar 2014:

                        "The route, which will pass through North West Argentina's canyons and sandy valleys, or the dunes of the Atacama Desert will require skilful driving as well the careful management of mechanical aspects. With longer special stages and several marathon stages, the 2014 Dakar's competitors will constantly be required to tackle extreme endurance conditions."

                            Det var ju skönt att höra, för hela upplägget har ju börjat likna SpeedCross. Jag har saknat de "omöjligt" långa specialarna och tuffa maratonsträckor som man såg i Afrika.

                              Håller med men det har väl inte varit flera maratonsträckor i tidigare Dakar? Nu verkar det som dom tänkte sig flera stycken. Då kommer det bli intressant att se hur toppförarna tänker göra för att få grejjerna att hålla.
