After the great performance in the 2012 Morocco Rally, that saw the five-rider Team HRC squad competing together for the first time and Helder Rodrigues in superb form, recording two stage wins, we have the pleasure of sending you a link to a video which reviews Team HRC's impressive debut with the all-new Honda CFR450 Rally. You can view the video at:
While preparation for Dakar 2013 continues, Helder Rodrigues and Sam Sunderland attended the EICMA motorcycle show in Milan on Monday and Tuesday this week (12-13 November). It was a great opportunity for them to meet International media and a number of Honda dealers.
Helder Rodrigues: “It was very exciting to stand next to my CFR450 Rally bike in front of 700 journalists and Honda dealers during Honda's pan-European press conference in Milan on Monday evening. I also enjoyed EICMA. After having met journalists form all over the world, now it’s time to continue the preparation for the Dakar. I’m training every day, in the gym and on the bike."
Sam Sunderland: “It was very interesting to spend these few days at EICMA show, with the press conference and release of some great new Honda products and some interviews with press from all over the world, even Russia! And me and Helder were part of a live TV show, all in Italian. I look forward to the start of Dakar 2013 on 5 January. Thank you to Honda for inviting me and to be a part of this exciting project”."
