I thought Bryce had a 3 year contract with Mini/Red Bull? Or did the wreck terminate that?

Dunno..but he no longer has his prior codriver (Pete Mortenson), hasn't run any rallyraid since Dakar, hasn't looked to train a new codriver in rallyraid and hasn't mentioned it in any postings of any kind and continues to get injured with this or that...I wouldn't be placing bets on it...

Now can he wave a check and probly get back in the queue for a seat? Sure...but that's even worse than RG...At least RG was working on and thinking about Dakar all year long before he put his effort on a boat on a budget...These other guys live and breath rallyraid...

This race it was Nasser vs Jazeed pretty much, no other "elite" drivers racing so he had more chances, bad for Nasser but I guess it doesn't matters for him...
I like Yazeed more anyway because he stopped to take a selfie with us!

I am not sure Bryce is completely healed from his back surgery. He is out of the brace. I heard talk of possible Vegas to Reno run for his team. Nothing on social media. Last year he was at Silkway to prepare for Dakar.

Exactly...he keeps getting injured and hasn't done any real prep or training and doesn't have the codriver he has used in almost all his rallyraid events to date...looks like we Americans are back looking at only the bikes in '19 for results from our home country...
