Roughly 3 weeks and the DAKAR will be on , while others are sinking in the snow as I do here in Canada. As sponsorship for privateers is harder than the actual race I like to bring the attention to my friends website. Ingo Waldschmidt DAKAR 2013 Starter 101 The first Namibian Rider ever in the Dakar who classified 38th in 2011 and 52nd in 2009 <sup> </sup>Ingo Waldschmidt will compete in this years DAKAR 2013 with the starter Number 101. Dear ADV Rider friends please give him a "like " on his website linked to the facebook page , and show you support for someone who is not riding in the first row and get Millions of sponsorship Dollars , no your like will go towards a dedicated family man and Egg farmer who is getting up every morning and working hard and at the end of the day he might have some time for some fitness training . YOu can not imagine how tough it is ,scratching the dollars together in Africa for Sponsors for every Dakar and shipping his bike from South Africa to Paris and from there to South America. Thanks a lot my friends wishing everybody a merry Christmans and a safe ride where ever you are ! PS: We got only 95 likes on his website , my goal is 1000 !
