Dakar 2020!

A whole new race entirely in Saudi Arabia, but still very challenging and long. Actually in some ways closer to the original. And Ricky Brabec won todays stage and took the over all lead on his Honda! Nasty crash for Yamaha rider Van Beveren!?!

I truly hope Honda has fixed the bottom end problem in their 450cc engine developed for the Dakar and that Ricky can be the first American to win the overall this year.

It was such a shame that he lost in the last 50 kilometers last year.

SUPER ANNOYING...

I realize its a logistical nightmare (based on no internet/connectivity), but I've been trying to watch it on the redbull app/channel. Its all stupid 2min, 3 min, 10 min clips.. no real coverage of the race, just a few shots of riders/drivers and a bunch of stupid shit about the camps, pits, and standing around at the start/finish.

I want to see people racing not cheeky brits/aussie announcer guys hitting up the food court!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The NBC Sports Channel has a 30 minute DAKAR presentation every day of the prior day's stage.

Then a few hours later, I believe they are posting said shows to their youtube channel.

Nice!

Bravo to Ricky Brabec Leading the Dakar at round 6. Let's hope his Honda doesn't crap out on him that has to be looming in his mind after Kevin Benavides Honda failed leading for him not to finish the Dakar.

In the cars I like Nassar Al-Attiyah in the Toyota!

Six more days and anything can happen

Each stage has a winner. So it was a spoiler for that stage. So there.

RIP Paulo Goncalves.. What a shame.

Aussie Toby Price was first on the scene in tragic Dakar death.

Such a dedicated rider, here he is swapping his motor out on the trail just days before his last ride.

I didn't realize Saudi Arabia had such fantastic geography. I thought it was all flat and sandy. Looks like the Dakar race has found a good venue.
