Those are my links from last year. Someone who knows better can elaborate or trim this list.
Thanks for those links
Thanks for those
Ah Troy, Flood, et al--longing for the good all days when we showed up a few days with our F5 finger at the ready and run what we brung!!
I usually go into information overload about day 3-4. I think I'm already there.
Jeebus guys, the fricking race is still 5 weeks away.
And where's that slacker Packmule?
Now, somebody has to get with Mischa and come up with an app for this. The Dakar one last year sucked, par for what we've come to see as the ASO standard. Mischa's data in an app that pulls it up-to-the-minute would be way cool.
Stickers and t-shirts, who's doing them?
Happy to be joining again for this race!
My cheers for my mate Craig, # 124!
This DAKAR thing... it's a whole new ballgame Goofy, ever since the AFU adopted the new F5 virtual DAKAR tech reg's...
Why, some of the factory/pro teams are using anywhere up to three different laptop (engines) during the race, not to mention multiple monitors, and the back up server teams. Then there's the increasing use of various iPOD, android and mobile phone app's to navigate off the "cyber-piste"... :huh Even dedicated systems for the irritracking etc.
Man, the day's of the humble F5 button privateer...?! :huh Honestly they don't stand a chance these days of getting a top ten outright placing... much less shooting for a podium.
There's a submission to the F5 jury that there be a "Malle Monitors" class introduced for the 2012 F5 virtual Dakar... where only one monitor/PC will be authorized for competition.
A further consideration is being given to approve the use of only ONE authorizedmobile phone app to monitor the web/irritrac when off the "virtual piste", but the concern is that this extra cyber-navigational aid can be subject to abuse and the use of which can be difficult to police. Apparently the ASO.adv is waiting to make a definite decision on this ruling, until a thorough case study is compiled by the Moviestar tin foile/moustache special operations division, as to how "cheating" may be monitored/controlled if this concession is allowed...
Troy is tired, and talking shit to stay awake!
Keep up the good work
Malle Monitors should have to run dial up.
and computer must be powered by a petrol driven generator - no mains power
Okay... so we want a "Mallee Monitors" AND a "Vintage class"... then?
Looks like most of the ozzies are tired and hallucinating already! And its still a month away!
F5 DAKAR... It's virtually like BEING there...
Yeah.. And no Laptop!!
Fail to prepare, prepare to fail! Thats the mantra on three-time Dakar Rally winner Cyril Despress mind as he gets ready to return to South America for the 2012 Dakar Rally
'Im on a very rigid training schedule as the Dakar gets closer. Im training four days out of five and on the weekends Im trying my best to keep the race off my mind. The training period before the race is such an important part of having a successful Dakar, I treat it like a job and put in long hours. Its just lucky that my office is the Andorran mountains and my chair is the saddle of a motorbike.
Theres more to it than riding and testing the bike, though, Im in the gym a lot too. A few weeks ago I was at Red Bulls Diagnostics and Training Centre (DTC) in the Austrian Alps. I make a pre-Dakar trip there every year and its always good to get their expert advice on race preparation. Theres always something that I can be doing better and little details that can be improved upon.
I also have my personal fitness trainer living close to me in Andorra. I like to get a mix of ideas and opinions when its comes to drawing up my training schedule. My trainer is Argentinean so of course he has plenty of ideas about how to cope with the demands of a Dakar Rally in his country. We talk about things with my manager Chris, who is English, and my team-mate Ruben Faria, who is Portuguese. Its like a meeting of the United Nations!
Im looking forward to racing with Ruben again. Last time I was in South America I borrowed Marc Comas support rider Joan Pedrero. Ruben has now recovered from a crash that broke four of his ribs and is undergoing his own fitness training ahead of the Dakar.
We had the chance recently to ride KTMs new bike for 2012 Dakar Rally. Its always a nice feeling to get an early Christmas present and I was very impressed by the new machine. Now the bikes are on a boat heading over to Argentina which means that the race cant be too far away!
Before testing the new bike for KTM, I put pen to paper on a new deal that will see me ride a few more editions of the Dakar after this one. My relationship with them is similar to the one I have with Red Bull. We have all been together for a decade now and over time the relationship becomes more than just a business arrangement.
These people are no longer just colleagues but instead theyre some of my best friends. Im looking forward to another good result at the Dakar and then getting the chance to celebrate with these friends.
old friends... and business
Already started the extensive F5 finger training. No one can ever be fully prepaired for a race like this, so I started training the other fingers for mobile app's in case of a NIFOC emergency.
Sorry not to link directly, darn iPad...
