"Itís not just the navigation that is new for me at the Dakar. At this race you are on the bike so much because of the long liaison sections before and after each stage. At the Dakar youíre on the bike all day and your butt gets very sore. Thereís nothing easy about the Dakar, in terms of mental fatigue I haven't done anything like this before."
long liaison sections itīs like go riding from home to Hare and Hound races or from LA to Baja/Ensenada and come back late night!!!
