The format of reporting has changed a bit over the past few years, and this year, with threads popping up to feed people's Google Chromecast and specific threads for Streaming Worldwide TV Stations that there isn't a one stop shop for the beauty that is the Dakar, captured by photo-journalists, pro photogs, and even fans. You'll see a little bit of it interspersed in the Official Event Coverage, sometimes better known as the F5rehose... but who wants to dig through all 1000+ pages of event thread just to see the photos? not me. i don't even want to go to more than one site. :) so here it is, the collected beauty that is captured by the folks with the cameras, here for you. a few rules to keep it clean: - keep the # of photos /per post down to a reasonable level; i'll be keeping it to 5-10 photos per post, i suggest you do the same. - event discussion is for the Official Event Coverage thread, not here. keep the comments / replies to say "nice photos" to a minimum. - try to reference your source whenever possible - give credit where credit is due. some of my sources: - webventure.com.br - these are the photogs in the field! most riders / teams will buy photo packages from webventure, with a guarantee of daily photos; some of those photos are not released to the public, but some are. i'll be posting everything that's publicized... as they get released. - Dakar.com - direct from the organization themselves, they post the best of the best photos each day - much of the content is leaned towards the "top guys", but this is one of the few places where you'll see helicopter shots. - RedBull Photo of the day - obviously RedBull team riders only. - KTM News - usually one article / day, with 3-5 photos per day of their riders. there's also a flood of photos from almost every team and rider coming out each day via twitter & facebook... some of it is just camera phone shots, some of it is internal team stuff, i'll try to grab the best of the best. please help! let's fill this thread out with beautiful photos! if you know a source that is posting awesome stuff, post it here. if you see awesomeness posted in the other dakar threads, feel free to cross post, giving credit where credit is due. (quote, copy, new reply in this thread, paste, add a period so it isn't seen as a blank post.) pro tip: big webventure.com.br images! if you want a larger (or smaller) version of an image from webventure, it's usually there, i'm just not posting it in that size to make the thread load fast... and... in case anyone needs it, here's my full entry list with names / whatnot pulled from dakar.com.
