Chris arrived safe and sound in Argentina on 27th December, and Iain, Darryl and Chris had to hire a taxi to Mar del Plata – 600km! – as there were no hire cars available.
Chris phoned today and had this to say …
“I finished scrutineering – just four and a half hours! The bike is mint, pretty much new – it’s Cyril Despres from last year, and the KTM guys have been really helpful, This is a total rich man’s sport, I don’t quite feel like an outsider but maybe a bit of an imposter??
I had to blag my way through a bit of the process, like when they asked for a 12000 euro deposit for something – yeah right! It makes the ISDE look like a Waitemata 2 man club day … this is BIG. It is amazing, there is so much going on and I am blown away by the scale of it!”
So, all is looking good for the 1st, he is feeling ready to race.
