    Let's keep this thread focused on collecting media for the 2012 Dakar Rally (video, audio, pictures). If you want to add to the water coming out of the firehose then the main Dakar thread (or the riders' threads) are the place to post. If you've got some good pictures or video, though, post it here.


    If you don't have time to drink deep from the firehose it's nice to have some threads, like the cliff notes thread, with focused content.

    Since there is already good 2012 Dakar media out there we might as well start this thread now.



    No, wait, Bluebull's video highlights from the 2011 Dakar are worth posting first.

    I posted this in the main (pre) Dakar thread earlier today, but it's quite good & should be a part of the media thread.

    A few 2012 Dakar essentials:

    Jonah Street
    (first half is good, the second half is bland well-wishing and advice-giving . . . except for the "shower" comment lady at 3:30)

    This is from last year, but it's awesome. The guy looks like a Latin Earl Hickey (from My Name is Earl).

    Thanks for starting the media thread agian this year Dread.

    What do you think about posting up links to all of the Dakar riders websites, facebook pages that are ADV inmates at the beginning of your thread? There's a ton of great vids, pics and info on those websites.

    That sounds like a good idea. I'll put in what I have now and when others post that info in this thread I'll add it to the first post as well.

    Is it better to make a new thread The Link page.
    And keep this for embeded video and videolinks.

    Riders:
    http://www.dakar.com/dakar/2012/us/rider/rider-list-bikes.html
    click on "the driver" info most of them have a website link.

    Searchengine tip: By video: search "dakar" set last 24 hour.

    Here is last night's (Tuesday 28.12.11) Eurosport preview programmes - "Destination Dakar" is showing tonight from 21:30-22:35 UK time on Eurosport 1. Apologies for the bare links, couldn't crack the embedding code.

    Parts 1-4:

    http://screen.yahoo.com/dakar-<wbr>route-review-27726230.html
    http://screen.yahoo.com/dakar-<wbr>s-peru-challenge-pt-2-<wbr>27726427.html
    http://screen.yahoo.com/dakar-<wbr>peru-s-desert-pt-3-27726521.<wbr>html
    http://screen.yahoo.com/dakar-<wbr>peru-s-desert-pt-4-27726523.<wbr>html


    Looks like the video poster then named it a bit strange splitting pt. 5 into what looks like 3, but if you watch all 3 you'll get all of it:

    http://screen.yahoo.com/from-<wbr>the-desert-to-the-pacific-<wbr>27726537.html
    http://screen.yahoo.com/the-<wbr>fech-fech-of-peru-27726279.<wbr>html
    http://screen.yahoo.com/peru-<wbr>s-broken-dunes-27726597.html

    Final part 6:
    http://screen.yahoo.com/the-<wbr>trek-through-peru-pt-6-<wbr>27726600.html


    Then there was a second part of coverage last night - Dave Castera on Bikes for 2012:
