If you're still running the WR, I know of a couple of well used bikes here in KSA that may be coming available this summer. Not mine though.

The Springbok will return.

Thanks for that info, it could prove to be very useful.

I would love to do a blow-by-blow RR of the Dakar, I just hope my memory will serve me well again like it did on the Dos Sertões, and that there are better photograph's than we saw this year.

Truth be told the Salar De Uyuni in Bolivia is full of water this time of year and the altitude is high enough for us to have a episode of Survivor with the helicopter pilots to see who will make it.

The good news is that I am entering this year. I'm going to need some financial help to get there though... More on this soon.
we'll be rooting for ya Neil

Typical - there is a 2013 thread already started!

Just in (or out):

Press Release – Dakar 2013
The 35th edition of the Dakar will also be the 5th to take place on the South American continent, which has hosted the event since 2009. From 5th to 20th January 2013, the competitors will follow the route between Lima in Peru and Santiago in Chile, with a rest day planned at San Miguel de Tucuman in Argentina. The desert will be on the programme from the first days of the rally, for the first time in its history.

Several weeks ago, the riders and drivers on the Dakar discovered the Peruvian version of the desert. Struck by its splendour but also its technical demands, in this setting of sea and sand, they experienced a highly intense sequence before the finish in Lima. For the next edition, the Peruvian capital will play host to the start of the rally, with the promise of holding an exceptional challenge in store for those who take part; one that is simply equal to the test they have to face each year.


At the end of the journey, the rally will finish for the first time in Santiago. Chile, which, in the Atacama, has been the theatre to most of the unpredictable developments during the last four editions, will have the opportunity to celebrate the heroes of the Dakar in its capital city.

Over the thousands of kilometres that they will have to tackle, the competitors will distance themselves from the Pacific Ocean as the event is spiced up by a detour via Argentina. On the other side of the Andes Mountains, the variety of terrains will put all the competitors' capacities to adapt to the test.


With a reworked spread of difficulties and a new perspective on the discovery of the continent's geography, the Dakar 2013 is emerging as the event for which both the elite and amateurs of the rally raid discipline prepare all year long. Registration will open for all the categories (bikes, quads, cars and trucks) on 15th May.


It would be rude not to eh?

Neil - have you sorted your assistance yet? - give me a shout...

Thumbs down What!?? No Dakar through Bolivia!

I¨m pretty bummed out that Dakar 2013 won´t make it through Bolivia....I was really hoping for that. We have some beautiful, unriden and wild terrains down here.....
Hopefully in 2014!

I believe it was majority ruled. After '12 edition all (most?) entrants were sent a questionaire and the date change was address. I for one voted for later start date.

Yes back in the 2013 edition. The film is nearly done, working on credits and the last bits of music now, then off to Festivals, most probably including Toronto.

Are we all sponsoring an ADV Journalist for 2013 or what?

From asphaltandrubber.com

"Dakar organizers describe the three countries of the 2013 Dakar Rally as the following:
Peru (Grand Start + 5 Stages):

"The discovery of Peru thrilled everybody who reached this stage of the rally in 2012. This time, all the riders, drivers and crews will be able to test their mettle on the largest chains of dunes crossed on the continent since 2009. The Dakar has never before started in the middle of the desert in its history. Whilst the dosage of difficulties will decide just how and when the pressure rises, there will be no room for improvisation in 2013.

"Argentina (5 Stages + Rest Day):
Once it crosses the Andes Mountains, after a first visit to Chile, the rally will encounter a different face of South America: one that guarantees a broad range of terrains which smile primarily upon flexibility. In Argentina, the capacity to adapt will be vital to switch from one type of riding and driving to another and between different methods of managing the race. Although the ration of sand will be less dense, the visit to Gaucho country will nevertheless finish with a major test in which only genuine experts in desert riding and driving will be at ease.

"Chile (4 Stages + Finish):
Two distinct sequences will be played out in Chile and each of them will be decisive. The return to the Atacama corresponds with the phase of the Dakar where competitors navigate in the domain of extreme endurance. As a challenge of ultimate resistance, the sessions in the dunes will continue up to the day before the finish. Before reaching Santiago, the competitors will have to tame difficulties of the highest order right up to the end."



From ftnnews.com

"According to Peru's Minister of Foreign Trade and Tourism, José Luis Silva Martinot, Peru's participation in the 2012 Dakar Rally generated over US$520 million directly and indirectly, with the most economic impact coming from hotels and petrol stations."




From bernama.com

"Peru's Minister of Foreign Trade, Jose Luis Silva, said . . . that Lima has enough hotel capacity to receive the racers of 2013 Dakar Rally . . . "Lima has an important hotel capacity to accommodate roughly 2,000 people, who among them are competitors and mechanics that participate in the event."

Is there something I'm misunderstanding here, or something lost in translation, or does all of Lima have a fraction of the rooms of one Vegas hotel?

Bluebull, you might have some people that need to stay at your place.
