That was really cool. Don't you wish someone did that (and translated it into english) every year?
Absolutely! What a wonderful film...

Suprised no one has mentioned Gaston Rahier who won this year on the 1000 cc bored out R80G/S (completely customized). pretty amazing that they won Dakar on such large bikes! (they are limited to 450cc now)...
Good thread from when Gaston Rahier died on ADV rider, back in 2005
The other event that is put on the by folks who put on the tour de france
Now, some photos!!!
Gaston Rahier, who won the 1984 also on the same / similar bike:
Cryril Neveu - both of these guys are small!
Rothmans Porsche 911 - the debut year for these famous 4WDs!
They actually raced one of these for support for the Porsches (this is a different one that someone turned into a camper. They are 8x8 and I believe all axles turn, used for transporting intercontiental ballistic missiles by design...!
Mercedes SL coupes in the Rally!
and many others, in the movie!
