They have to rely on their riding skills and luck to save themselves when a surprise comes up, which often isn't enough. The roadbooks shows many of the worst hazards, but it's impossible to show them all. Even a small bump can be a race ending hazard:

Are you F5 rallye addicted, when you know which clip you are going to view before you click on it?

Yes you are and I figured it was Quinn, I noticed he was absent from the Roster this year.


Sorry back to Flash Gordon. I hope if he has a teammate he doesnt slow him down this year, not stop to lend him the spare parts when he is need, etc.

I just found this thread yesterday.
I'm glad he's running Dakar again, I hope he sticks it to em!

Sure he's an "individual", that makes him entertaining.

I even ordered a sticker!

GO ROBBY!

Anyone know what you have to do to get on PlanetRobby? Been waiting weeks for the email after you register.



Never mind it came literally seconds after I posted.

Can somebody explain why RG races a vehicle that represents a defunct car company?

The HUMMER brand is no more but GM is still trying. There are a lot of HUMMER's out there with a following. Where can you purchase an off road Mini? All these vehicle are custom fabricated off road race machines. Most outer bodies could be changed to fit a market, sponsor etc...

I guess I get the part about not having a manufacturer sponsorship, but at the same time racing a Hummer (or a Hupmobile, for that matter) leaves me with an impression of questionable relevance & credibility.
