    Hi all I just checked a certain site that I used last year. It looks like the Road Book and and 2012 destination Dakar is there.
    Eurosport in English. I haven't tried it yet myself. I will when I get home.
    I cannot post the site if I do they will terminate me so let me know I will PM you

    Thanks

    well, it's either "p" or "rfm". The "p" site is also called the fish site.

    Damn. I distinctly remember mailing torrent files from RU to my assistant (not registered) so he could download his motoGP fix...

    has anyone / would anyone be willing to at least give it a go?

    At the moment, as long as fishy is working and has all the coverage, I am going to use that. However, if that fails us again like last year, then I have a backup plan.

    The fishy torrents are set private, so they should not work without an account, but I have not tried it.

    Some torrents may have your account information in them. So if you share them to a group, and they all leech, it will screw up your ratio.

    Do not mention the P site.

    I've said too much.

    The first rule of Dakar torrents is you don't talk about Dakar torrents. The second rule of Dakar torrents is you don't talk about Dakar torrents. :lol3

    Dang right.

    That said, some awesome non-torrent stuff is now on our site we don't talk about.

    Geez, I'm late to the party this year.... Thank goodness GoNow has my six. GoNow, Sorry, I have been slammed at work over the "holiday" (none for me this year). I will get what we discussed to you...

    Shoot me a PM with the other site you mentioned if you don't mind!

    Confirmed, both major racing trackers have both Destination Dakar and Dakar Road Book. Hoping that most users will be able to pick up content on one of those two this year!

    Let the Dakar begin!

    Thanks for the links. This thread is not just about torrents, but YouTube, direct download, and streaming, aka any form of online viewing. We need our Dakar fix.

    Not my favorite rider, but always love to see him wheelie his bike of the start platform!
