Watch your mirrors for the cars coming through.
Didn't think about that, better be on my game from the start.
Will they re-set the start order as the race progresses?
Yep, resets based on stage results everyday. I bet BC is starting 2rd behind Coma after stage 1.
Just sendin a little good karma your way BC. Give em....
Do well in the first special stage of 60km. I would think that you don't want to start just in front of the trucks.
"The seaside resort of Mar del Plata brings to mind lazing around, especially after the competitors have mingled with the crowd during the public presentation ceremony on 31st December. For the short warm-up special stage, they will nevertheless be allowed to pass by the seafront, where the small dunes to be crossed will represent the first hurdle. In this simple exercise, the fastest time will establish a first winner and determine each competitors position in the rankings. After this challenge, there will be a long liaison section to be covered to Santa Rosa de la Pampa."
After this special, throw in a pair of street tires and hit the 796km liaison. Talk about a sore butt!
First stage is just a 60km long dune crossing, so start order and cars coming from back will not be really an issue.
Probable best dakar start in Southamerica, no problem with dust and overtaking!!
Ah, my first post here after two dakars of following you with the "hot F5 button".
And an informative one it was too... well done and welcome to the F5 fraternity...
Congrats from another Conger!
In order to document all of Bill's supporters around the world, we are holding a little competition (for pride) to see who can best use their imagination and take a picture of themselves/pet/child/bike wearing a shirt/decal/patch that you purchased from the BC2Dakar schwag store on his website: www.bc2dakar.com
Of course you won't be nearly as cute as my niece and nephews, but please feel free to try. You can post to this thread here or email me your photo to firstname.lastname@example.org!
I will post all of them to his website as they come in!
The only reason they're cuter is 'cause you got three of them, Julie....
Realized I didn't have any BC stickers or a T-shirt because I just gave cash earlier. So, I ordered up a T-shirt and some stickers!
Go Bill !!!
Ordered a couple shirts. See ya in BA!!!
Here's a few photos I captured before Bill took off this morning :) ENJOY
Ok, finally a little time to update the bike build. Since spy shots of the skid plate surfaced may as well go public. The details are at www.bc2dakar.com with plenty of pictures.
Here is a picture of the skid plate attached to the bike
The bike has an appealing "Mad Max" look to it!
The welds are sublime!
Very cool! You'll ride the wheels off that machine .. to the finish!
Way ta go BC61
True, now all he needs is a sawed off shot gun!
Any updates...when are you leaving?
SMIB's going to Dakar! Thanks to everyone who contributed to my Dakar effort. I have been working hard putting together a good rally bike and training. I'll post some pictures of the bike and the SMIB sticker once it is done.
The bike's coming along great Bill! I enjoyed visiting, messing with the beast, and generally getting in the way at the fab. shop yesterday.
The HP2 is proud to be sporting the BC2DAKAR sticker!
