My little guy finally made the gallery on Vurboffroad. The bad news is he had to be in a first turn pileup to make the cut. http://vurboffroad.com/galleries/gallery-big-6-final-pala/2518/

Your'e right WJM. I don't remember which race, but Peterhansel raced a bike this past year and did place very well.

Comment by WJM on December 5, 2013 at 11:06pm

I think Peterhansel could hold his own on a bike today. I don't think he'd be in contention for the overall but I wouldn't be surprised if he finished in the top ten.
Which reminds me; I wish I could find the video of Roger DeCoster riding Ryan Dungey's bike around a supercross track during a practice session...jumping doubles. Old Guys Rule.

@Will, amazingly the guys at RDC didn't think that was the next biggest news of DAKAR for bikes.

As some may have surmised,I'm not a huge fan of SuperMoto,it's hurt mamed or kill many talented riders
God Speed Doriano.

Former Grand Prix and World Superbike road racer Doriano Romboni was killed today during practice for a charity Supermoto event in Italy. Ironically, the event was being held in memory of MotoGP star Marco Simoncelli. Romboni was 44 years old.

Romboni was one of several stars taking part in the event, joining the likes of Max Biaggi in the Sic Supermoto Day at the Latina Circuit. According to reports from Italy, Romboni crashed in the practice session and was struck by another rider. The Italian was airlifted to the Santa Maria Goretti hospital, but succumbed to his injuries. After Romboni’s accident, racing at the event was cancelled.

Romboni won six Grands Prix from 1990 to 1995 in the 125 and 250cc classes and also earned a rostrum finish in the Dutch 500cc Grand Prix in 1997. His last victory came in the 1995 Brazilian 250cc Grand Prix.

In 1999, Romboni moved to the World Superbike Championship on a privateer Ducati. For the past three years, Romboni has been the director of the Puccetti Racing Kawasaki team.
According to Max Biaggi's Twitter feed, Marco Simoncelli's father, Paolo, says the event will resume tomorrow to support Romboni's family. Rombini was a father to three children.
