    They don't build Suzuki anymore. That "GF125" equipped w/ 4-valve machine almost identical to Hyosung w/ same model name. Apart from models mention above, AX100 was their bread & cheese.

    It appears that #70 Pablo Pascual (Jincheng Yamaha 450) finished the rally in 65th place, and his teammate Su Wenmin #81 finished in 69th place...
    By the way, Simon Pavey (from long way round and "race to dakar" fame) finished one place back in 70th. Bravo!

    It appears that the third member of the Jincheng Yamaha team, Han Baohua #149, did not finish stage 7 and withdrew. It is strange that he is not listed on the dakar.com website on the withdrawls section. But there are no records for him after stage 6.... http://www.dakar.com/dakar/2011/us/rider/149.html

    Thanks for the update. Han's dropping out was reported a couple of days ago, and he was described as "another" Chinese to drop out. It seems the other three were four-wheelers, not motorcyclists. Here's one report in English from China Daily:

    Another Chinese drops out of Dakar
    Motorcyclist Han Baohua became the fourth Chinese participant to withdraw from the Dakar Rally before the start of the ninth stage on Tuesday. Han had to pull out of the race in the eighth stage after he ran out of fuel with 4.5 kilometers to go before the fourth check point and was unable to climb over a mountain with his bike.

    The world's most gruelling rally had previously taken its toll on seventh-time China rally veteran Lu Ningjun, Guo Hongzhi and Ma Junkun.

    Lu, of the Rely-Double Star Team, took over the job as the team captain and his teammates, Liu Kun and Jiang Yaohuan, driving China-made Chery Rely X5s, finished the ninth stage, a 235km special, in 23rd and 39th places respectively. Jiang, last year's 29th-place finisher, is now 44th overall while Dakar debutant Liu is 46th.

    The best Chinese performer on Tuesday was Zhou Yong, who finished the stage in three hours, 44 minutes and 54 seconds and in 18th place. Zhou advanced one place in the overall standings, from 17th to 16th.

    In motorcycling, Su Wenming was 62nd in the stage and 67th overall. Truck driver Li Yang reached home in 21st place and is 19th overall.

    Simon did this rally with no back up no support.Huge effort he was running better than 70th had some problems with bike in the latter stages.

    Well done Su .Is he the first Chinese motorcyclist to finish the Dakar?
