Dakar 2013 - Patrick Beaule; Canadian National Enduro Champion is in!
Patrick Beaule makes it official! He's returning to Dakar on a Motorcycle!

See the official announcement here:

Official Patrick Beaule Announcement

Follow-along here for updates, and day-to-day stuff until we get to the Dakar.

This should be pretty interesting since Patrick is one of Canada’s most accomplished enduro racing champions!

He holds an impressive list of titles: three Canadian Motorcycle Association (CMA) National Enduro Pro-class titles; one Canadian Enduro Championship (CEC) E1 Pro title; three Off-Road Ontario Provincial Enduro Pro-class titles; and, two prestigious International Six-Days Enduro (ISDE ) silver medals (Chile and New Zealand). In addition to these titles, Beaule has also won the infamous Corduroy Enduro in the Pro-class four times, was 3 times team Pro-class 12-hour endurance event winner in Quebec, and twice Pro-class 24-hour endurace ice-race team winner in Alberta.

He is also finisher of the DAKAR in 2012 (in a car with David Bensadoun Driving), and the 1st ever finishing automotive-class navigator in Canadian history. They finished in an impressive 40th place for their first effort!

This year ALDO Racing will again be providing title sponsorship, but this time for his Motorcycle effort.

You can all really help our effort (since sponsors are watching!) by doing the following: :deal

-Subscribe to this thread!

- "Liking" on Patrick's official FaceBook Page here:

Patrick Beaule Dakar Facebook Page

- and followign tweets with the hashtag #PatrickBeauleDakar

I've been asked to help Patrick through my media company FlannyMedia, so you can also help by following my Twitter account @FlannyMedia, and also follow Patrick's tweets as @PatBeaule

More information to come! I'm pretty excited since Patrick only lives about two hours from me, and the two of us can work together on this project, and do rides etc.

There is even a chance that I might get to provide support at the rally in the T5 support truck a la "Deadly99" for Rally Pan Am last year! :deal:clap

Here are a few pictures from Dakar 2012 featuring Patrick and David Bensadoun in the ALDO Racing Desert Warrior just to keep the ball rolling.

Patrick is on the right.
