Well, after a bit of hunting around, i've had little success with finding information about the "Malles Motos" of Dakar. What i do know is, that basically you enter the Dakar event as per any other compeditor, and effectivly pay around 500 euros extra, for the service of having 2 trunks (as per pic below), and 2 sets of tyres, transported around the event for you. These trunks 'leapfrog' each other, for the duration of the event, and carry your spares, tools, sleeping gear etc. This method enables you to do the event Marathon, with no service, backup crew etc., thus reducing cost etc. Link to video: http://player.sbs.com.au/dakar/#/dakar/highlights/highlights/playlist/This-is-Malles-Motos/ I'd really like to know some more information about this method of doing dakar, and what some of the logistics are. For example, what can you pack in there? Can you pack a spare engine as per pic, or is this against the rules? Either way, by the time you pack: - Spare Parts - Tools - Oil - Oil Filters - Air Filters - RB Highlighters - Spare Underwear - Socks - Sleeping Bag - Sleeping Mat (maybe this is a luxury?) - Tent - Toothbrush - etc. ... it wouldn't take long to fill. And what about when you get back to base, and you really want a Chair or some Shade? Should you pack a Warm Jumper/ Raincoat. Where do you pack your Lollies, Gatoraide? And your mobile phone, can you charge it somewhere? I find this facinating.
