    Here in the US we had coverage last year on VS. It absolutely SUCKED! :puke1 Didn't like the bimbo either. Does anyone know where Dakar will be showing this year?

    I went through some of those links, and they've changed or are simply dead. Check them out before D Day, and find alternates where available. I haven't had a chance to go digging, and i'm going to be out of town for the entire week....

    Dakar on US TV is just about dead. Find a good ASO feed with knowledgeable commentators from Eurosport or SBS and enjoy.

    Yep, these are just some links from last year to give you some leads.
    I saw that the TodasNoticias stream isn't working, here's their home page:

    They usually have a live stream for the opening ceremonies and lots of coverage from the Argentinian stages.

    Eurosport will likely be showing some preview programs like they usually do in December some time soon. Normally good stuff covering the reccy team doing the route and roadbook and interviews with the big names getting ready. :clap:clap

    IIRC, its called "Destination Dakar".

    I DVR it so I can get my Rally fix in July when we are 6 months from the real deal.

    I fast forward past the bimbo:wink::wink::evil
