    I stand before you, humbled and honoured :D

    I must disclose that your post will be be printed, framed and placed in a prominent position next to my little trophies and the plaque I received last night (I had an award ceremony for 2nd overall in our little Rally Raid championship last night, lost valuable time in the last Special yesterday :lol3)

    Here's to next year, and hopefully you won't have to move houses again and we will find ourselves cracking up at your excellent comedy recaps

    :clap

    Don't know if it's been mentioned since the finish, but Nicolas Boyer #127 on the Honda XR400 finished in 87th spot (just one behind Shoestring)... he is currently profiled in the Dakar Mag section on Dakar.com:

    http://www.dakar.com/dakar/2013/us/summary/adrenalin.html

    Although typically those pages are superseded quite regularly...

    It's quite a story - a €3500 Euro bike that he first raced in the African Dakar back in 2001 - congratulations Nicolas!

    I've been a member for a while and I no longer ride, I pop in occasionally to have a read, but my favourite time is following the Official Dakar (F5) Thread. What a wonderful job all the main contributors do, have to single out TCS, Mischa, Packmule, Bluebull, Deadly99 as well as the members who are actually competing - and, I'm sure I've forgotten some people, apologies for that.

    Living the Southern hemisphere and working nights, I've been able to follow the Dakar 'live' via this thread - that is until one gets to following the trials and tribulations of #150 - Luis :rofl Many's the time I've got up for breakfast to make a beeline to my laptop to see how Luis is doing, only to discover that, as usual, we're all waiting, waiting, waiting ....

    It's a magnificent effort to finish the Dakar, at what ever level one competes at, so congratulations to all.

    I have to offer an opinion about the Snooker :D Seriously, you guys had me in stitches, more than once, my poor suffering laptop has had coffee sprayed on it when I read one of those very hilarious commentaries on the pre-Dakar programme. I'm most impressed about the knowledge acquisition that occurred, ADVRider's snooker commentary started to rival the real thing :hide

    Thanks for the fantastic experience, see you for Dakar 2014, you beautiful people, cheers Deb

    thanks for that, yes ive been following nicolas's jouney starting at 127, through the 100's to finish malles moto in 87...epic finish

    In praise of simplicity

    There is a moral of austerity in the adventure lived by Nicolas Boyer during these two weeks of racing. While certain pilots see deep pockets as the path to glory, the rider from Annonay made his comeback to the rally with a 1999 motorcycle, following his debut in 2001. "My Honda 400 XR is probably the least expensive motorcycle in the rally, it only cost 3,500 euros. I trusted it from the beginning, and rightly so. I had a few scares, but luck was on my side. My front wheel is bent and has a broken spoke, but it still does its job and I don't have a spare part. My ring snapped off from behind. I only had two screws on me and I got two more from spectators nearby. A small miracle", explains Nicolas, who was also helped by a guardian angel in Chile: "The zip on my jacket was torn off, so I rode two stages with my jacket open. Back home, my wife posted an appeal for help on Facebook. A woman came to see me at the bivouac, I gave her my jacket and she brought it back the next morning so that I could continue." Nicolas also broke two ribs on the road, but he clenched his teeth while savouring his success: "It boggles the mind that my motorcycle survived, seeing everything it was put through. I'd probably have had some more fun with a more powerful motorcycle, but I'm not sure I'd still be here."
