How did the girl on the Quad do.... any pictures???
Just click on "Overall" for each vehicle type.
Allright, so Eurosport 1 just wrapped up the 2013 Dakar and I'm sensing that it'll be another 50 weeks before I get to see Amarok commercials again.
It's been a blast, yet slightly taxing on my sleeping pattern and my SO who hasn't seen a lot of me these past two weeks. =)
So you all again next year!
There are pics of her on the podium if you go back a few pages on this thread (they're a bit blurry as they're vid captures but still......)
Fresh off the podium, we catch up with Lyndon for a wrap-up interview for his 2013 Dakar effort. Many of you have asked to hear from Lyndon's dad, Robin, who served as his mechanic for the race, and I'm happy to say that Robin joined us for this call! Grab your favorite beverage and sit back for the final details and some reflection on the past fortnight (indeed, the past year). Cheers!

<smacks forehead> Those are HOURS, not Minutes. Well duh!
I have searched through several dozen back pages to find the "mythical" LUIS & 150cc Smoker motor bike
I have yet to see him w/out a helmet & either or both sides of this elusive Bultaco.
Prove to me the existence of either, or they shall both forever be "AFREAT OF THE GREEN GINN"
I ask this as I misspent many hours awaiting the arrival of the UNICORN of the Dakar to make an appearance.
Here's Luis without his helmet.
and this is his bike (before it was liveried).
Hope this helps.
This Dakar was hard on noses, thats for sure
Now I can rest easy knowing full well there is a Santa or LUIS as in this case.
My hat is off to you kind sir, and thanks for proving that one can stand against all odds. and prove to the world that jousting with
windmills is still a viable sport.
Maybe some slight confusion but the "elusive Bultaco" was ridden by Ignacio Chivite, not Luis.
(Edit: pic from 2011, IIRC)
I wanto thanks for feel like part of the Team F5
And like a gift I let you these Pics I did by casuallity when I drop by where the KTM Team (Depres, Farias, Caselli) was resting after the Dakar in Santiago
So here are :huh:huh:huh:huh:huh:huh:huh
And the last one
until the next year!!

tldr; everything posted over in the Dakar 2013 Media thread.
thanks to everyone who participated this year, i'm looking forward to next year!
hopefully, i'll be able to participate more next year - had a ton of personal stuff pulling me away from being there for the stages.
congrats to all the riders who finished, you've done an amazing thing!
It's that time...
The Dakar hangover begins. Sometime round about early February, the fog will burn off and things will return to normal for eight or nine months - for most of us.
But for those rare few, the gladiators contemplating their greatest battle, the gears have only just begun to turn. Thoughts of entering, checks to be written, support crews to be lined up... Previous competitors building on prior experience, new entries attempting to find their way.
The end is the beginning... and so it goes.
Thanks for another great year.
Want to say thanks to everyone for posting the awesome links to everything Dakar. Photos, tv coverage, facebook, blogs, tracking, ect. ect. With out the help from you many computer genius' I wouldn't have sat at work watching Eurosport coverage from a smartphone! It really is great having the coverage that this technology brings us. I didn't miss a post this entire event it was really great coverage. I got interested in Dakar when Chris Blais was racing it. I was glad to see someone else remembered him when his name was mentioned a few days ago. Now I can finally take a few days, let my eyes readjust, and get back to paying attention to the wife! So again thanks everyone this lurker really appreciates it!
