Only 36 entries on the list and there are supposed to be 189 bikes. Big glitch somewhere! ;D

In any case he probably won't get far on a "HUQSVARNA".

Learn to spell the name, before you critisize it.

some seriously bad info there.

You would think that for a big organisation like them they might proof read the shit before publishing...
The entries fees should cover stuff like that  :patch:

Darryl has been training hard and definitely on KTM.
He said that the most difficult part was managing the reading of the roadbook and riding together.
Go Sir Curtis.

Don't think he will. Have seen a tweet about who his replacement will be, but can't find it now. :-\

Im sure they will fix it in good time. The ASO is always a little bit iffy and disorganised.  ::)

Not really on topic but here is Frans Verhoefen crashing his Yamaha bike off the stadium at a fund raiser, I guess he is getting the crashing part behind him before the rally.  :imaposer:

 :laughing4:

He is a great rider, but it was refreshing to see that even the best are human.
