There is a parking lot close to the camping site, but no parking at the camp site itself.

Head over to the Taste of Dakar page to see our suggested packing list. It can be found on the instructions tab near the top of the page, in the "Need to Bring" file. Glad you signed up, it's going to be an awesome ride!

Last year we had 50-60 riders, but this year we are expecting 80-100. Luckily it's hard to feel crowded when you're way out in the desert!

We just confirmed Chris Blais will be one of our guest speakers at this year's Taste of Dakar. Chris has competed in the Baja 1000, and in 2007 was the only American representing KTM/Red Bull Racing in the Dakar rally. He finished the grueling race an incredible 3rd overall. In late 2007 he suffered a tragic accident that left him paralyzed from the sternum down while training for the Vegas to Reno desert Race. Chris didn't let that stop him from doing what he loves -- he now races in the WORCS series in his own Polaris RZR and runs Blais Racing with his wife Patty.

Read more about Chris' amazing story here.
