    :D This is becoming a classic: Lavigne's worst moment of Dakar, "if I let him jump he may miss and kill a few or everybody else may want to jump as well..., if I don't let him jump I face a mutiny and I'll be killed myself...":D

    From: Calle

    A milestone crossed today. At the intro and briefing I was overwhelmed of happiness. A ride through the city and millions of spectators. Up the podium and the dream came through. This is what I've been working so hard to reach. Thank you all who helped me, I can now die happy. The real test starts tomorrow with a long day starting at 6:23. Waiting for Donna to bring our bags so we don't have to eat in our underwear
    Also I would like to congratulate John Mitchinson who now officially put his own bike brand on the world's biggest motor sport competition. Great work!

    On top of the world.

    It's from Raid Designs FB page Jenny.

    EDIT:
    Also in the Berglund team FB page, they posted:

    ''We have come back from the Ceremonial Start. Absolutly mad. 10km of streets in cantral BA lined with people. We drove up the podium together. In two weeks we will be back. Tomorrow 06:21 we start the first real stage. 830km although only 175km special. You wont hear from us directly from now on. Our focus will be on survival. Thanks for all your support!''
