Trust me on this, I've been on 5 Dakars as either a racer or team manager and got plenty of people into the bivouacs. (Including that very pretty girl in Chile in 2010.)
Ahh so thats the secret. Need to find a pretty girl and bring her in with me. Shouldnt be too hard with my oustanding looks and bright personality. Do Chilean girls like short fat bald aussie blokes????
