I think it was Cyril that narrowly missed it- The first time I saw it, I was thinking that someone was going to end up in there further back in the field with some dust.

It will be an interview about the Dakar itself and my campaign (and yes, my accident x) interspersed with a few choice tunes, plus the opportunity to email in to the show with your own questions which I'll do my best to answer on air...

It should also be archived as an MP3 should you not be able to listen in live...

Toot toot!

Jenny x

ps. Piglet is in charge of choosing the music, so it could well be crap... x

Just took www.bikerfm.co.uk for a test ride. Test complete - Test SAT! You can bet your boots (if you have any left! ) that I'll be tuned in this time tomorrow.

Tell Piglet to goose the music a bit, wouldya, it was a bit snoozy.

Not that I ever could afford a Dakar - but this is how I would fare with my own 690RR with my present skill level and total lack of sand dune training This rider may have pulled it off, but I would certainly fly over the bars.

#114 DNF'ed at Stage 7.

Yep, as a photographer, I can wholeheartedly say, that is a ridonkulous photo...

And Coma's riding ability isn't bad either...

any chance we can get some of these in high res, possibly without the bevel / footer (desktop use)

edit: i just clicked over to the mototribu.com dakar 2011 page, and all i've got to say is... wow. some amazing photography, the ones posted in this thread only touched the surface.

















amazing photos... for so many reasons. if you haven't clicked through yet... do so now, it's worth it.

Rockin'!

Shameless self-plug alert!

I've been busy updating the www.jennydakar.com website over the past couple of days, and it's now live again with a new photo album full of Dakar pictures - a great number not seen before - plus the new Team T-shirts and other merchandise deals are now on-sale online!

Please check out the new photos, and let me know what you think over on the 'Dakar Dazed' thread...

Jxx

ps. Piglet has asked me to remind you all that later today (27th January) at 10pm GMT, there will be a live interview on www.bikerfm.co.uk with Piglet talking about his favorite records... (erm, are you sure that's right? ed.)

Hopefully there might also be an opportunity for me to say something about my ill-fated Dakar attempt this year too...

Toot toot!
