    :lol3

    Thought you might like that one mum... :wink:

    The "trash talking" amongst competitors before a big race is one of the most fun parts of any rally :lol3

    Though they would never make such a comment publically (consumate proffessionals they are and all), but amongst freindly rivals I could well imagine Cyril or Marc making such a light hearted jibe to one of the other riders... especially one of the "young guns". :wink:

    All in good fun... c'mon january! :clap

    You are SO funny Troy!! Love coming on ADV to see what the latest comments are especially when passing the time of day when I should be working :wink:

    I can't wait for January, half of me is super excited to see how it pans out with such a strong field this year and the other half of me is scared stiff :eek1

    I really hope Sam plays it cool and just concentrates on staying safe and reaching that finish line and keep reinforcing this opinion on him, not that he takes any notice of me I am sure :roflI am sure he will give 100% and do his best as he always has done and fingers crossed lady luck is on his side as everyone needs a bit of luck to finish the Dakar no matter how good or experienced they are :D

    Like you said, c'mon January, can't wait :clap:clap

    I do not have cable TV. So what little of DAKAR they do show on TV in the US. I am not going to get to see.

    My question, Is this going to be the thread where I can see all the days high light clips?

    Also any suggestions on what web sites that are good for following DAKAR (other then www.dakar.com)?

    one last thing love the videos that are already hear.

    Come January, there will be more than a few other threads for Dakar. I am planning for full daily coverage via my twitter feed and blog as time allows. As far as TV coverage goes, might want to check previous discussions on how to get a hold of the Eurosport feeds. I find them the most enjoyable to watch. A few inmates even get a mention here and there each year.

    This forum will, by far, be the most up to date and highest volume source during those two weeks.

    <o:p></o:p>

    Morning all. Just checking in as the excitement starts to build. Good to see all the familiar faces here.:wink: I haven't been on ADV much since last January due to my continuing state of bikelessness but I can't wait to cheer on Pyndon and the rest in 2013.

    Getting ready for Dakar 2013, :wings

    However unlike last year I don't think I will engineer a few weeks off work by throwing my bike down the road, which means I won't be able to follow the race 24/7 but will actually have to go to work :(:

    How I started 2012....

    Yeah me too Mad Cow. No hernia surgery to recover from this year so I'll only be a casual F5er.:cry (Well I'll miss the late nights following the Dakar but not the sensation of being stabbed in the groin with a hot knife that my recovery entailed! :lol3 )

    I took the two weeks off :D

    DOnt know if anybody mentioned it yet, but Hugo PAyen is in again. :freaky


    A good idea deserves a sequel, so thought Hugo Payen. The Frenchman did for the Dakar Rally 2013 in the significant race number '69 'worm. To his Dakar adventure to finance Payen has again secured the sponsorship of French porn producer Marc Dorcel.
    porn
    Payen came last year when the distribution of the starting numbers on the idea Dorcel approaching. The porn producer was interested in and decided to sponsor the Frenchman. One consideration was that the engine Payen had to put a picture of the porn actress Anna Polina.

    Miss Dakar # 69
    This year, fans on the Facebook page Dorcel choose which lady in 2013 the engine Payen would adorn. Claire Castel was eventually preferred with 395 votes for Liza del Sierra (229), Polina (160) and Angell Summers (139).
