Great stuff! I did check my Tivo upcoming show listings for Versus for the USA, and they ARE covering the Dakar. They are showing a Dakar Highlights show at 11:00pm on January 1st, 2012 so I can assume they'll be doing the daily highlights each day like they did last year.
That said, nothing beats the Eurosports Highlight show IMHO. So any effort to share that gem gets my full support!
