I was about 12 km out (and didn't think any spectators were out any farther). I also don't recall any whipflag that tall with a french flag... in fact I never even running into any frenchies (besides CD, DC, and the ASO staff) all weekend at the Desafio Inca... so I can't say who this vehicle was...
Wierd 4-wheeler too!
Yes, Cyril also went home before the finish of the Australian Safari in 2012(2011?) after he hurt his foot half way through.
Dreaming of Dakar
Everyone has a max speed, 90% of that max speed is much safer and easier, and if that 90% speed isn't fast enough at Dakar, you enter the snowball. - neduro
