This should be the last article on the 2011 Dakar Open link in a new window edition, I promise.

KTM Open link in a new window released some interesting statistics on this year's motorcycle rally:
  • 4837 m the highest point of altitude crossing the Andes
  • More than 250 km driven over an altitude of 4000 m
  • Hottest temperature: 42°C in the shade in the Chilecito region
  • Coldest temperature 2°C in the Calama region

  • 15,000 kg of spare parts transported by the three KTM trucks
  • 11,700 liters of fuel used by the three service trucks and three support cars
  • 3,800 liters of fuel for the KTM bikes
  • 300 liters of oil in total
  • Total amount of kilometers in KTM vehicles (bikes, trucks and cars) - 80,000 km in 14 days
  • 60 rear wheels and 60 front wheels for the KTM bikes
  • During the 14 days (336 hours) of the rally no member of the KTM teams or support staff had more than 60 hours sleep
