Annie Completes the 2009 Dakar in 76 th place!
During the infamous stage 12
"She injured her shoulder which was already suffering from a ligament problem. With a lot of pain, exhausted she was helped by a team-mate motorbiker to get up and a helicopter came to bandage her. She did not give up and kept going, and eventually reached the end of the stage."
She rode through stage 13 & 14 with one good arm!!
Her words describing stage 14,
"I still had the shoulder aching and bandaged, could not move my arm. It just hanged there strengthless. As yesterday I put the hand on the handlebars and grabbed with the fingers. So I had to ride softly."
We're talking a true Champion here folks!!
