personaly I think the real rivalry this race is between RG and Nasser...not RG and Stephane. Just saying

Nasser is one fast driver




Rumor in the biv last year was Nasser was kicked out of the teams camp a stage or two before he dnf'd

is RG being a bit of a control freak...is this what prevents being on top of the podium?

Riding with Bob chasing and spectating Robby would prolly be more fun than being in the race!

I agree, pretty much about epic, get to go pretty much anywhere you want and no pressure of beating the next guy.

Not lost, just expressing an OPINION, a view of how something strikes me, and the whole Hummer branding thing struck me as a misfire.

You got a lot of emotion wrapped up in this...

I did realize the example I cited hails from France, but IIRC RG's antagonists weren't all French. Nani Roma comes to mind, but it's been a while.

Miracle on ice... Our college kids beat an elite sporting organization that hadn't lost a playoff game in 30 years.

We'll call this years Dakar Miracle in the Desert... for both RG and Johnny Campbell.

Happy to see Robby back for another go at Dakar. You have to respect his talent as a driver and the energy he brings to any race.

Subscribed to this thread and just liked Speed Energy Facebook page.

Good Luck Robby!
