That would be awesome. I think Quinn (and the unfortunately AWOL in the future Jonah, and Bill) are all guys that were sadly missing from this year's race.
Sadly because -like Ned- I get the impression that they are fantastic ambassadors of the sport as people
Good points by Jaybo and Packmule, I would suggest waiting for Ted's book to come out as well, I
think it is going to open up a a can of worms (in every good sense of the phrase) as to what inmates
will want to be let in on during the race (The "Inside the Helmet" factor. Good term)
The US market really needs the exposure right now, seeing as the usual contenders (Spain, Portugal, France Italy)
are all heading for financial melt-down, and taking into consideration that 99% of the Dakar are the privateers (something
the money-grabbing ASO would have us forget), it would only be a good thing for North American riders.
