    RIP Goncalves.

    he’s been mixing it up ever year that I’ve watched the Dakar. Great rider and a tough dude. Sad to see him go.

    In other Dakar news. a 19 year old, 5'2", south african girl became the first african woman to finish the Dakar.

    On another note, I thought it was odd to see so many riders using those foam grips.^ I think Lyndon had them on his team bikes too.

    Saw lots of them torn in the footage from both races. Maybe they work well enough to last a day and reduce some vibes and hand fatigue. :dunno

    I'd bet the foam grips are good for vibration and long miles. the squishyness probably helps with hand blisters. you see a lot of Pro Grip Rally grips on these bikes too.

    I think those are the grips I have. I like them.

    They are a bit thicker and softer than your average off-road grip.

    I tried them once. They were so big I had trouble holding onto the bike.
