KTM's Marc Coma Uncertain for Dakar 2013
So far Coma is skipping all the events preceding the official start for the Dakar Rally on January 5th in Lima, Peru in an attempt to give his shoulder the needed rest and making as much progress in his rehabilitation as possible.
A press conference is expected quite soon, with an update on Marc Coma's health is to be made public and possibly a final announce on whether the 2011 Dakar winner will be riding in the hard South American race.
Not having Coma chasing his KTM fellow-rider Cyril Despres (4 Dakar wins) would not only be a blow to the Red Bull KTM team, but as well to the fans and will surely take out much of the Dakar thrill. Stay tuned for updates.
