Andrew finished the website today so gonna start sending details out tommorow. The DAKAR organisers have recently announced that the bike class is going to be restricted to 450ccs. As far am im aware in 2010 we will still be able to ride the bigger bikes but they will have to have a restrictor on them. I was going to go for a KTM 525 but seriouly considering going for a 450 yam as ive ridden one in the desert before with a big tank and it was lovely. Plan to have the bike bought by the end of July then Patsy Quick is going to help me build it up.
Training this week has been a couple of 2 hour runs, rebuiling a KTM 300 engine as it seized on a trailride in Wales a couple of weekends ago, so this weekend im gonna run it in on a trailride to Barbury Castle Swindon with my mate Alan James.
