Default Can we count it as a win!!?!?

Sam Sunderland won the Dakar Rally on a Gas Gas, does this give us bragging rights or does it add to the complicated conversation explaining that he was not on a proper gas gas (although it is almost identical to the gas gas that was entered a few years ago by the OG gas gas factory lol!!)

naa, hard to tell. I would't brag about it myself, but if someone else brings it up (without knowing the background) I would't start the explanation either.

Otoh, the bike entered a few years ago was not a "proper" Gasgas bike either
Wasn't that a rebadged KTM, just as this one?

I was thinking that it was a Yamaha YZ450 after GG started putting YZ250F motors in their frames to that they had a place in the 250F enduro market, but i could be wrong.
