I saw that too, very emotional Dakar for sure. They were clearly good friends, given how Marc gets along with everyone...and helps other riders with riding tips. He was helping Kurt last year with riding and navigation tips from the sidelines.
Even though the community lost someone like Kurt...Everyone celebrates who he was, his life and love for the sport. and even in loss, we got to thank the big guy upstairs.

Marc was in tears talking in Spanish about how he had Kurt in his mind many times in the race and how Kurt helped in the race. We was riding with Kurt and they won it for Kurt.
At on the podium, an emotional moment for the team
