I know there is a lot of non Depres supporters but this is quite good. Taken from Motorsport.com:"Cyril Despres preparing for Dakar 2013 – will he be the one who will win the fight against the desert again? While he was winning the Dakar in 2012 he now has to focus on the new challenge again and with the victory of the “Rallye Oilibya Maroc” - which is the last one before Dakar in the seasons’ schedule – he proofed to be well prepared"

Check out the awesome vid on: http://www.motorsport.com/dakar/video/main-gallery/rally-dakar-2013-cyril-despres-profile/
GODSPEED!

Awesome pic of Riaan and Darryl

+1 :thumleft:

I think Cyril is a bit of a pratt, but he is an AMAZING rider.

Here is the South American Hero, got to love the video

And then a new lady to follow from Chile.  :mwink: Sounds like she has the right attitude, she explains she has no plans to beat Laia Sanz, just to finish.

I dont know about Alfie, I dont see his name on the list. :dontknow:

The Pewano was a once off done on the dream of a late sponsor who always wanted to see a volvo competing.

Bullit you forgot Glen Grundy on the bikes.

Dan, you love to stir ;D Frans is a really nice guy and a great rider, maybe he will do things on proper factory supported bike this time - Like Kenisis says- thats if he doesn't crash on the starting podium.  :imaposer:
