Nothing against Kellon at all, I hear he's a great person and a very accomplished rider, but -if memory serves me right- I think he "only" won the final "parade" stage in the 2005 or 2006 Dakar.
Again, I'm in no position to criticize any rider rider who ever started in the Dakar, it's just my head full of useless rally trivia speaking.
I'm pretty sure he hasn't raced a South American Dakar on a scooter. He was the co-driver in the 2nd Hummmmbuggy with Ronn Bailey in Africa.
