Bryce's next Rally Raid is booked. Scheduled for a week and a half from now the official entry list is out and Bryce is in (Mikko Hirvonen, Boris Gadasin, Erik Van Loon and Kalifa Al-Attiyah the other big names in the event).

Bryce will be using Peter Mortensen in the silly seat for this event after having used codrivers with deep Rally-Raid experience in Abu Dhabi and Baja Italy earlier this year. Given the lack of real off-piste navigation this should not pose a huge issue.

If Bryce doesn't have mechanical issues, he should be vying for the podium and a possible overall win in this event...

That is pretty optimistic. If Bryce beats Mikko Hirvonen I have a case of Red Bull for you!

Oooo....Game on!

OK...ground rules...just straight up who finishes better regardless of DNF/DNQ/mechanical issues, etc.? I'll agree to that. Can we switch it to a case of "Speed" instead? They have nice online ordering and RG can use all the money he can get to hopefully get back to the Dakar some day...

Sure we will keep it simple and just say whomever finishers higher regardless of outside events. I picked Red Bull since we were talking about Bryce, but if you want Speed that is fine by me.

Rallies aren't won on the first day, it's ok.

Well it looks like we picked well. Bryce in second, only to Hirvonen. No shame in that, very impressive for Bryce and especially Pete against guys with a lot more rally raid experience.
