so to sum up the pre-requisites for a Dakar winner
  • extensive international / national level championship winner skill levels
  • extensive desert racing experience
  • outright speed over long distance
  • professional rider
  • major team resources
  • 1 to 3 previous Dakar's competed
  • late 20's to early 30's
  • mentally tough
  • race craft smart
  • extensive experience controlling the race from the front
hmm not many to fit that criteria thats for sure
