Saudi female biker eyes 2022 Dakar Rally. Also a couple of Saudi women prepping in the 4 wheel category. Great news, more empowered than many believe.

Some shuffling amongst the team riders.

Still wonder whether 1 of the existing KTM riders will move on with Benavides' arrival in their midst.

Also wonder who Husqvarna will contract in Pablo's place..

That is good news!

I actually saw that young Daniel Sanders was racing for GasGas at the Kazakhstan rally over the weekend. My assumption is that he made space for Benavides at KTM then..
