Speaking about THE DAKAR WINNERS, I think the tradition in Enduro is important, obviously, but...

just few strenght guys win Dakar. Look at the DAKAR ERA:

1979-1987: 3 winners FRANCE & BELGIUM
1988 - 1998: 3 WINNERS: FRANCE & ITALY
1999 - 2004: 3 WINNERS: FRANCE - ITALY & SPAIN
2005 - 2012 : JUST 2 WINNERS... FRANCE & SPAIN...

As you can see, in each era just 2/3 big drivers got the knowledge to manage all the focus to win Dakar: strenght, drive technique, orientation and speed at same time, 6th sense...and luck during all the race, from start to finish.

And it's not easy, for nobody, in next Dakar, to take part in the "GOTA" of the WINNERS!!!
Despres and Coma are still fast and professional.
