PostSubject: Video teaser for 2011 Dakar   10.12.10 6:59

A Youtube teaser video shows competitors getting ready for the 2011 Dakar, which starts on New Years Day in South America.

Nearly 5,000 competitors are getting set to take off on the world's toughest rally, which runs for 9,000 km through Argentina and Chile, to the Bolivian and Peru borders, then back towards Buenos Aires.

The 2011 Dakar will be run with motorcycle engines smaller than 450 cc and manufacturers have met the new, smaller-engine rules with motorcycles geared for the competition.

KTM will again contest the rally with Cyril Despres and Marc Coma, who have combined to win the last five Dakars, and other manufacturers in the rally are Aprilia, BMW, Yamaha, Sherco, Honda, and Beta.
