Dakar 2012!

Right now, the Rally Management Services crew and Ford F350 are at the Dakar supporting 3 exciting American riders:

Jonah Street on the factory supported Yamaha YZ450.

Ned Suesse on a home-built KTM 450 EXC.


Bill Conger on a home-built Husquavarna 449.

Unfortunately, both Bill and Jonah are out of the rally.  But Ned is doing well, helped in great part by the hard work of Tim and the rest of the crew.  Our crew is:

Driver Robb McElroy, mechanic Niles Follin (for Jonah) and mechanic Tim Morton (for Ned and Bill).  Along for the ride is Ted Johnson, who will update a blog here and plans to write a book about his experience with the RMS team.  

The race is on!  

Congratulations to Ned on his impressive finish!
