    This is sooooo sweet! I feel like a junkie that just found a new dealer after my regular left town.

    Hello Jenny,

    Could we use this thread to also report from Team Rally Raid Sweden who have 14 riders participating this year instead of creating a new thread.

    Yes or No :D

    Hi Åmme,
    this is the "official" thread where all members can post any snippet of news, any video, tweet or photo they can find. The result should be the most comprehensive coverage of the rally in the world. So post away!

    Thanks Michael - it is certainly my intention to race the LC4-50 at one of the UK rounds this year too... it will be good practice for all that Bolivian mud we are hearing about for 2014!

    Certainly! - as Flood says, the idea is to have a 'one-stop-shop' here regarding any/all the information and coverage we can glean from the Tuareg this year... all I've done is get the ball rolling, hoping it will evolve in the same way as the main Dakar thread does each year...

    Since I am specifically attending the rally in a media capacity, then I will do my best to get the inside track on any 'breaking news' regardless of who it involves, and relay it here each day in my own personal appraisal... but of course I'm also going to have my hands full supporting those 8 riders/teams that I highlighted at the beginning of the thread (providing them with a personal daily news feed) so I'm sure we would all welcome as much input as possible from alternate sources - including bikes, quads and cars too of course!

    Just to say I've been making a few updates to my Featured Rider's profiles on the first page - most are now complete, although Ned and Jean-Luc are still in transit (or lording it up in a European bar somewhere more likely!), but their complete info will follow shortly too...

    Enjoy!
