I hope I have this right - looks like Wessel's Dakar 2015 entry was accepted by ASO.

Notice the extra bodywork on the air intake. Possible overheating problems?

I'm really chuffed for them. I was disappointed they ween't there last year.

So is there an official list published somewhere? Or do we find out only from riders themselves?
I would be rather keen to hear which South(ern) African riders got in, and whether JMo and Piglet will be there in the LC-450....
