Just had word from a friend that Shorty had an off in the last day of testing and is out , to be replaced by Graham Jarvis, the legendary extreme Enduro rider.. while its great to see another Brit on a good bike, i was really looking forward to seeing Andrew go at it with a year's experience under his belt.

Will try to confirm 100% , hope its not the case , but sounds like it is .


EDIT... Spanish media April Fools Quite why they would use non-spanish riders is beyond me, but hey , whatever.

Quite happy to look a twat, as it means he is good to go. Just listened to him and Brabec on the Pulp Show from a week or two back, they are ready.

Scam. Very unlikely anyway. There are many better choices then jarvis.

Blows me away that people seriously think they would use Jarvis as a replacement. Dakar is so far out of his area if expertise.

Yeah Dakar is probably the last race that Jarvis would like to do...

These guys train all year for Dakar and people think they are just gonna throw an enduro guy on a Dakar bike with no road map training or anything. Lol

Heck, just yesterday Vital Moto Related had killed off an old legend. Then, he surfaced alive and well. Info came from an "industry insider", go figure.

Now, today they are knocking Short out of Dakar.

Go Shorty!!!!

perhaps a question mark on your thread title (at the very least)??? You posted it as a statement...

Or delete the thread altogether...

Is this some kind of media blitz for a new "Get Shorty" sequel?

I ripped a start from Egypt and I was happy about that.

I'd rather be last to have news out, but have it right, than be "first" and wrong.

If you are last , surely it no longer 'news'...

My source is a reliable one, he actually had seen an English version of that fake release, after he heard from his source. It was all a bit vague, but as this seems to be 'the way' in moto, waiting for a press release is futile.

Still dont get why they picked non Spanish subject matter.

Anybody who thought Jarvis would be a replacement on the Dakar team is anything but 'reliable' on that topic.

Take a look at his Ezberg qualifying runs and tell me how good you'd think he'd be in a race like Dakar....
