    Cheers!

    Once upon a time, a guy asked a girl 'Will you marry me?'
    The girl said, 'NO!'


    And the guy lived happily ever after and rode motorcycles and watched sport on a big screen TV, went fishing and surfing, and played golf a lot, and drank beer and scotch and had tons of money in the bank and left the toilet seat up and farted whenever he wanted.


    THE END

    Default Santosh set for world cross country debut

    India's best off-road rider C S Santosh is all set to make his debut in the FIM World Cross Country championship which kicks off across the desert sands in Abu Dhabi this weekend. The Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge will mark Santosh's first international rally raid attempt, coming on the back of his dominating victory at the gruelling Raid De Himalaya on his debut in October last year.
    With all Dakar teams and riders using the event to test new equipment, the multiple Indian motocross and supercross champion will be up against some exemplary competition, including multiple-Dakar winner Marc Coma.

    Therefore, expectations are far more modest in terms of results this time around, with Santosh hoping to break into the top 20 classification amongst a field of 61 riders. As part of preparations for his cross country debut, Santosh had spent a week with Dakar winner Jimmy Lewis in Nevada, USA in March, learning navigation training a key element in motorcycle cross-country rallying.
    Finally, all that work came to fruition as Santosh got his first taste of cross-country machinery on Wednesday, and it turned out to be quite a contrast from his extensive experience aboard nimbler MX/SX machinery.

    CS Santosh -

    "This bike is a lot heavier compared to anything else I've ridden before, as it carries a huge rear-mounted fuel tank and navigation equipment up front. But despite the weight it is really powerful so there is a lot of momentum, which is what I need to get used to at the moment
    I am really excited and nervous and everything in between.
    I have been talking to many competitors over here and they say it is a very long and hard rally, so I cant wait to get started!
    The action kicks off on 6th April with a Super Special (Prologue) in Abu Dhabi followed by the first stage on the next day, which is flagged off from the Yas Marina Circuit. The 290-kilometer stage will take the riders to Liwa, which will also act as the location of the bivouac (camp site) for the next four days of competition.

    The fifth stage on April 11 the final day of the rally will take the riders back from the desert to the Yas Marina Circuit, having covered nearly 2,000 km.

    With an aim to participate in the Dakar in 2015, Santosh intends to compete in the World Cross Country Rally Championship for the next two seasons and amass enough experience and support to consider taking on the worlds biggest motorsport challenge.
