Look, yesterday's route!


Yay, that's so helpful!


What fucking morans do they have running their web presence? You guys in business, it'd be smart to figure out who they are, so you never waste your time and money on these guys. Ever.



They're fucking failed meteorologists.
I was thinking of giving the ASO a call. they need a better site ASAP and some amazing mobile app too.

Try getting near your bike after a deployment. It ain't easy just getting a little ride in, let alone actually going anywhere for the first month.
just 12 days, but I'm back off again today usually stay for a week after 3 weeks out

I wonder a little bit about the tire. Pirelli created a new design for the rally scorpion extra for the Honda rally bikes.
may be it's too difficult to have a mixture for soft sand and hard trails in one tire.
May be rally tires must go the same directions like the Moto GP: soft, hard, rain, etc ???

Okay, I'm really starting to think the ASO IT guys are lurking here. They just fixed the link on the day's stage.

In a way, it makes sense. Where are they gonna find out first that something's gone awry?

He also seems to be the only one to take every short turn in a standing position vs sit down like the rest.

He truly uses his trial skills in making the bike turn.

Córdoba: un piloto del Dakar se quedó sin plata y el público lo ayudó a pagar la nafta
Por joaquin agustin Martes 15 del Enero de 2013 | 12:22
Se puso a llenar el tanque de su cuatri, pero cuando se acordó ya llevaba gastados $170 en combustible y solo tenía 100 en su billetera. La gente hizo una polla para pagarle al piloto chileno lo que debía. Mirá el video.

Córdoba: a pilot ran out of money at Dakar and the public helped pay for gasoline
By joaquin agustin Tuesday January 15, 2013 | 12:22
He began to fill up his quad, but when it had already been agreed in fuel spent $ 170 and he only had 100 in his wallet. People pay the Chilean pilot right thing. Watch the video.
