We were in the Tucaman bivvy today.
Tomorrow we will be at el rodeo spectator point till about 2pm.
We had trouble securing our bikes. Look for a silver Nissan twin cab filled with noisy Aussies and 1 xr650l.

Ps very difficult to get into bobby unless you know someone. We paid 400 us to get into club Dakar but it was worth every cent. I will update my blog with pics later tonight.

We got in!

Yesterday we (by we I mean Suzie, everything was in Spanish and I had no idea what was going on) had a bit of a chat with an Argentinian selling merchandise. When we turned again up this evening he had us a pair of wristbands. Wouldn't take one peso more than the 20 they cost him (about 4 USD between us). It was brilliant. It did mean we spent the evening there instead of sleeping though so we might not catch you up tomorrow. We'll still keep an eye out and maybe see you later on.

I'll check out the blog another time. Did you mean Recreo for the spectator point?

Cheerio!

Great pics, McGuyver! Looks like a Dakar Junkie's experience of a lifetime.

+1, great photos. Looks like you met all the right people - we only got in in the evening so while we caught the vehicles, a lot of the competitors weren't around. My only disappointment was that we didn't manage to find Simon Pavey or his bike, where was he?
One of the Race 2 Recovery team mistook me for a mate of his so once we finished being confused we ended up having a good chat with a whole bunch of them.

Good one guys, hope you've seen some good racing today.
