2011 Dakar > Husaberg has a rider ( team?)

it seems that husaberg is seriously supporting someone ( Berglund ) with a Dakar mission! Great news, you can follow the build at berglundracing.com . I bet Gazza can share some tips.. I hope this means Husaberg will help devellop some more aftermarket hardware.

good news for my 2012/2013 project!

They are looking at having fuel tanks made, seeing it as the biggest problem right now.
Maybe the 4 gallon tank is not to their liking?, too top heavy perhaps?

In the Royal Lifeguard, I think.

the DALE tank + the Aqualine front tank gives 20 liter, if you add the saddletank ik wil be 28. Should be more then enough i'd say...

Yeah I was sure I posted something about that but now I can't find it.
I'm keeping an eye at the major swedish off road forum, where Thomas sometimes posts (and Annie as well), and you can be sure that when something pops up I'll relay it here

You can follow Thomas' progress at www.berglundracing.com Well, you can at least look at the pictures

Exactly! Which is why I think the possible fuel capacity is not the actual problem, it must be something else that is their concern regarding the available fuel tanks. Like center of gravity for instance?, I don't know.

Its $$$$ he has been given bikes but no $$$ for parts, so they are fabricating in the army workshops I believe

No, Ullevaseter is getting one of the new KTM 450 rallye bikes. He and Thomas will be sharing the same Swedish Army support truck that they have used the last couple of years.

For those that dont know Thomas Berglund came 12th outright last year on a KTM690RR...............he should go well on the Berg, top 15 and probably at times in the top 10.

www.berglundracing.com

With some luck he should bring home the first Husaberg to ever finish Dakar !!

It will be interesting to see if any other privateers decide to use a Husaberg in 2011 Dakar as for them the 570 is still allowed and I know it is a stronger bike than say a KTM 530 etc
