Both US motorcycle hopes now out, Looks like it is going to be a shoot-out between Marc Coma and Cyril Despres, again. Of course anything can happen, and there are a couple other riders showing quite well in the early stages.
Considerably better coverage this year, just wish it was an hour show instead of half hour. They have to cram so much in the show I know we are missing a lot. They are spending more time on the trucks this year, good, also more time on the quads, bad. I just cannot get into the quads. I like the cars, motorcycles, and the big trucks.
Robby Gordon's Hummer team doing pretty well, in spite of some problems
Today Gordon said they do not have enough parts to keep both Hummers going for the whole Dakar, he picked up Al-Attyah late in the game due to VW pulling out this year, now they are babying the parts and tires they do have. That could be their Achilles heel this year. They hit the big dunes tomorrow, where the Hummers should shine, if they can keep them both going.
