    Great info here and I have played with some of the links, but with limited time available, have been recording the half hour dailies on NBCSports and viewing them at night. Less than 10 minutes for the bikes but enjoyable, none the less.

    Been fun to watch Honda doing well and giving KTM a run for the win. Long way to go though. tomp

    Does anyone know how to delete the VLC recordings I have in my computer of the Dakar?
    They are stored in the "VIDEOS" section of my libraries but when I try to delete them....they remain.
    They are taking up too much memory.
    Thanks in advance ALL!:D

    Does anyone have a link to a VLC stream of NBC Sports?

    Tried some online streams but they die or deteriorate very quickly and to watch online via official website a US Cable account is required (not possible for a Canuck).

    Would love to catch the daily summary as coverage is slightly different from Eurosport...

    Thanks in advance...

    Try googling Yahoo Ireland/UK then you will find many Eurosport links for the Dakar and it works in Canada . I have been watching all week, great stuff. Too bad about the Belgian chap passing though...

    It just dawned on me....EuroSport has cut their coverage down to just the highlight show this year, haven't they? In years past the also broadcast an interview show too....is that gone this year or did I just miss it on the schedule?

    Speaking about ES coverage with CK doing the voiceover....

    I'm pretty sure you are right; I think I read in the Torrent forum from a few folks that it is highlights only.

    My impression of the highlights is that they are doing every other highlight, skipping them outright.

    I watched stage 4 and was caught off guard when they started talking about it being a marathon stage. I had no idea because this wasn't mentioned in any previous highlights. [I got to thinking that the MS was supposed to be late in the dakar but then I realized that Cyril was on a Yammi this year so it made sense that they would do it early in the race while his first engine was still fresh...no?]

    Anyway, I am having such a hard time following this Dakar by watching only the ES highlights. Major disappointment.
