Introducing Team Rally PanAmerica's 2007 Dakar Rally Team.
The Dakar Rally. January 2007. The most difficult test of man and machine on the planet. Hundreds of the world's best will challenge the African desert for sixteen days. Half may finish.
Only ONE team will win.
Team Rally PanAmerica aims to be that team. We have the speed, the experience, and the determination. We have assembled what we consider the best American rally team ever. What could possibly go wrong? Riders. Jonah Street again leads our Team. Now a Dakar veteran with several stage finishes on the podium, Jonah has dedicated this entire year to perfecting his rallying skills. Jonah proved his speed in Baja and Nevada, riding for Honda and taking home a truckload of trophies, including 3 overall wins in the Baja 500.
Casey McCoy joins the Team this year and brings many years of rallying and racing experience, including stellar finishes in the Australian Safari riding for Yamaha.
Wheels 2 Africa. In past rallies, the Team has witnessed abject poverty and need, especially in Mali and Mauritania. This year, we plan to do something about it. In cooperation with Wheels 2 Africa, we will unload our race cargo at the end of the race in Dakar. Then we will load up our assistance trucks with humanitarian aid and medical supplies and drive back into the desert to distribute this to people in need. Contact us if you would like to be involved.
Bikes. The Team is building specialized rally motorcycles in our small San Francisco shop right now. Without factory support, we are free to choose the best bikes, parts and services available. Trust us; these will be some very unique race bikes.
Crew. We have the best crew in the business. Niles Follin, Sid Milton, Robb McElroy and Charlie Rauseo are all Dakar Rally veterans. Follow the Team. We will update our fans in press releases and on our website periodically in the next several months, and daily from Africa during the rally.
Sponsorship. We have some great sponsors, and we are looking to partner with one major company willing to lend its name to the Team. To learn more about partnering with the Team as a sponsor, see our website and contact Charlie Rauseo.
