Sad News from Dakar Rally
Two KTM riders have died this week. Jose Perez, 41, from a fall ,died in hospital.
Fabrizio Meoni, 47, died from a heart failure ,after a bad crash, in Stage 11.
Stage 12 has been cancelled for the bikes ,out of respect for Meoni & Perez.
The bikes will be flown to Bamaka for Stage 13. Cars and trucks will contest Stage 12 as planned.
I admire the guts and determination of all competitors in the Dakar. It makes the Australian Safari, look like a sunday drive.
Andy Caldecott is still going on his KTM, 8th overall. Brock is one of his sponsors.
Ride in peace guys. Along with Richard Sainct, you will be remembered for your Dakar achievements.
