Just so I get registered, no chance of an F5 podium finish this year.
Well, I was originally planning on taking the first two weeks of Jan off this year to follow properly, but work took care of that... Planning on joining in the wee hours as much as I can though! Wish I could be down there shooting photos and video. Need to get on that for next year... I'm sure you wouldn't mind a fellow Canuck experienced in photography and video no?
Chilean newspaper "La Tersera" here: http://www.latercera.com/noticia/de...ciones-del-dakar-en-medio-de-una-fiesta.shtml
And Bolivia for 2 stages of the 2013 Dakar Rally here: http://www.latercera.com/noticia/de...ganizar-una-o-dos-etapas-del-dakar-2013.shtml
Hayduke, I'm still waiting for my shirt?
Then 2014... add brazil to the mix maybe...?
I think Dakar "south america" has got a lot of potential for the coming years...
for the folks who think the event is going "home"... don't book any tickets to Africa just yet...
The GIANT symbol in the background (and small on the jacket) of this years shirt is just for you!
I'm awake (sort of.....).
Please feel free to amuse me.
Both those pics had me spew beer all over my keyboard, especially this one.
Its been rumored for a while now that Bolivia would be included in the mix in 2013, and the Peru will be left out. I think that will change after this years Peru experience. I'm predicting 4 countries Argentina, into Bolivia into Peru in to Chile to finish at Valpariso.
I Don't think we will see Brazil for a while yet.
Well... it seems luck is going against alot of the entrants for this years' Dakar. Bikes going to wrong countries [Quinn Cody], Bikes not being shipped to final destiniation [South Africans], and now to add to the list.. Dakar Team GB had their villa broken into, whilst at scrutineering.
Laptops, helmet cams, knee braces, boots, riding kit, laptops.. the lot. Sounds bloody awful, really hope they have some way of finding a solution.
If anyone has any contacts in the area that are able to assist with locating equipment that can act as a replacement, please reply or PM so I can forward any info.
Appreciate any help that can be offered
Me too. I am pretty sure Brasil will be out for a while mainly because of the dos sertoes deal.
ok, I didn't think subtlety was your forté but that's pretty good, I guess that means I have to order one now doesn't it? I guess I'll let you drop over for a beer now
good thing I didn't read that 10 minutes ago
Jacket? PM me the info pls.
On the rider's jacket on the design, I mean.
Funny cause it's true!
