Thanks to everyone. This was a tough Dakar for me work wise. I couldn't spare near the time I intended or wanted to and quite frankly, I didn't even try to keep up with this thread post wise. I lurked through every post, but mostly stuck to my twitter feed as you all have it well covered here. Big kudos to all the other mods that kept the cliff's notes up to date and steaming along and it's great to see everyone chiming in. The sheer increase in available information from so many different sources shows how much this has grown.
Going from literally no information other that what we could pull from dakar.com and then updates from Charlie when he returned to just about damn near real time updates for almost any rider is sheer madness in such a short time. Nice job everyone, really nice job.
