Uh, OK. I missed the part where this is serious business. Peterhansel sounds whiney.

Peterhansel already warming up the cheat accusations, I see.

Sainz not happy with the "Bugly"

Carlos doesn't seem overly confident with the Qatar "Bugly"

Yes, for insisting the race shouldn't be a circus, he sure sounds willing to throw some fuel on the fire.

Whenever I really want to hate the French I find out that Despres has a charity for kids in Senegal, or Etienne Lavigne brought a Red Bull to a despairing Toby. I don't "hate" Peterhansel, but it makes things a lot more fun to not just want Gordon to win, but to have someone I deeply want him to beat.

I expected nothing more to be honest... let's see what happens after the first couple of stages

It's a bit surprising that someone like Sainz would jump on such a haphazardly prepared project like the Nasserbugly. I never even had the impression that he loved racing the Dakar that much.

I kinda hear ya on him not being as pastionate about the Dakar as others....I was certainly surprised to see him team up with Nasser...wasnt too long ago they almost came to blows. Potential for some fun to watch team dynamics

Maybe he's finding some gratification in developing new, competitive vehicles like the VW WRC project.
He's probably finding it more difficult to keep up with young guns so this sort of low pressure environment is more adequate.

I'm really curious how will the two buggies fair.

I unfortunately know way too much about them. Here's my Historic class rally car.

we run stuff that is a little newer...unfortunately as good as this car below is I don't think it would do so hot in the dakar:

Rooting for Team Hino Sugawara. Hope they get more coverage this year. That goes for a lot of the smaller teams.

Here is my take on it, I think I may have posted it somewhere else. I grew up watching Peterhansel race enduros, supermotos and other motorcycle events. While being good on the bike, he was also well known for messing up other people's head ("intox"). Esquirol, Arcarons, etc. are a few names that comes to mind, by comments he was making in person or through the media, he was affecting their behavior.
I see nothing different here, playing on Robby's ego. Robby will want to be able to say "the famous K. M. A." and therefore pushing maybe more than what he should and make mistakes....
Hopefully not the case this year, but it seems like just about every Dakar, Robby had a a mishapp (rolled the VW the first year, overjumped a Dune the second year and smash the radiator, being pulled out of the ditch by the Lada, roll last year....) because he was probably pushing too much (something you rarely see Peterhansel do except when he clipped the tree the day before the final stage in Africa).
The first few stages are going to be really interesting to see where everybody is at level wise. Robby, Nasser and Carlos, the toyotas also, all the buggies even Vigouroux (last winner in Marocco beating the Minis...) and of course the Minis.

This wait is killing me, last year we would have already been in business ;-)
