    Once again, I figured it's time to get this party started.

    Daily Information:

    Dakar
    Here
    Rally Pan Am
    Rally Pan Am on Facebook
    Rally Pan Am on Twitter
    Marathonrally
    Raid-Live

    Where to listen:

    http://www.rallyraidio.net/ :nod

    Where to watch:

    Versus - Same as usual it seems. Half hour, one day delayed updates from 3:30 to 4pm EST starting on January 3rd with daily repeats from 6:30 to 7pm EST. It looks like some days will re-air a repeat at 10:30pm EST, but not all days.

    OLN - I don't yet see a schedule out past next week, but OLN usually follows a similar schedule to Versus.

    Also of course, Eurosport.com
    7:20 p.m. GMT 10 minutes live from the bivouac.
    10:00 p.m. GMT 45 minutes daily coverage.

    SBS - Looks like coverage starts on the 3rd with daily updates at 6pm. (I assume Australia time, not sure of the time zones. :dunno)

    You missed SafariBerg (117) and Rallye (122) (but you know that by now).


    Also, 58 Craig Bounds from the UK who is one of the ADV SPEC boys and will be calling in to RallyRAIDio.


    Cummo is 124.

    Also, while I'm not responsible for this, we have posted some great detailed info on Rally PanAm's facebook page. If you would like to know the character of each stage, including a description of the track, the type of soil by kilometer, altitude, sunrise, sunset, placement of checks and gas stops and more; then look at the images posted at the Photos tab on that facebook page.

    Woops. :doh The links were all pointing to the right person, but I just copied all the text and changed the numbers for the links but missed changing the text. That's what happens when you are trying to do this and pretend I am working with everyone looking over my shoulder. :lol3

    I updated the OP with everyone. Sorry to those I missed. New job keeps me from being on top of things like I prefer to be...been a little scarce around here this year so I've missed a lot. Let me know if I should add anyone else.

    Also for any Dutch speaking ADV'rs, (surely I'm not the only clog on this site) RTL, a Dutch TV chanel, last year had a 1 hour TV show every day, which they then put up on their website, mainly focusing on the Dutch competitors, lots of aditional footage to the SBS show. worth a look, especially if you want more truck action! Watching Jan de Rooy filling up his DAF with diesel with a lit roll your own cigaret hanging from the corner of his mouth whilst being interviewed, great stuff. (few years ago now) Just turn the sound down if you can't put up with the lingo. http://www.rtl.nl/sport/rtl_gp/dakar/home/ I'm sure their are more websites available with footage. Eurosport springs to mind. ATGreg will know lots more for sure!
