All the very best and at least (small consolation I know) you are at home; not in some desert piste.

Apart from the Kalahari Ferrari (Ross Branch), who else are we supporting for Dakar 2019?

[I have been out of touch]

Is Koos vd Heever still in?

Anyone ready to start a Dakar 2019 thread? (this one only started in October . . .)

Yes I believe Ross Branch is in for 2019 if I'm  not mistaken, Koos however is looking at 2020 :)
Another rider to keep an eye on is Kirsten Landman who would like to participate in 2020 too. She raced at the last GXCC with me and damm she made me look like I was standing still when she came past lol! She also did the Botswana Desert 1000 now and I think we can expect to see her in more such events building up to Dakar. She is tough as nails with her enduro background, has an excellent team with KTM backing her and I believe she has every potential to be the first lady to finish the Dakar rally on a motorcycle from the African continent :D

Agreed Minx... hope there are bigger plans for Kirsten - She was cautious at KB400 but rode Very Well !  Also not sure if in her plans, Taye Perry could be a good bet for Ladies if it could happen one day, Lets hope?
