It's that time...
The Dakar hangover begins. Sometime round about early February, the fog will burn off and things will return to normal for eight or nine months - for most of us.
But for those rare few, the gladiators contemplating their greatest battle, the gears have only just begun to turn. Thoughts of entering, checks to be written, support crews to be lined up... Previous competitors building on prior experience, new entries attempting to find their way.
The end is the beginning... and so it goes.
Thanks for another great year.
