The new baby girl at home is a very practical consideration. And also, speaking from a carreer/ego standpoint, with five Dakar wins is it possible to outdo himself? It would seem that to stand down from the sharpe edge without having been slain by it yet would be a very good strategic move. Perhaps thats why I'm not Cyril The Great, though

Now I'm no rally expert, but I think this is an often overlooked and undervalued point. Especially for those who think Cyril is switching to 4 wheels. If was betting I'd bet he doesn't switch to cars until he has two more Dakar wins. Yep, two! I said it. I think he wants that record for himself. Seriously why would he make the switch now? It doesn't make any sense especially when he only needs one to tie that record.

David Fretigne

I have a question.
What's the 450cc pioneer David Fretigne doing these days. I know he was slated to be on the Husky team is years past but things have been quiet since injury.
I miss his presence.
Anyone have news?

He started the 2013 Dakar and retired after a pretty lackluster performance.

Tweet from Jago Pickering:

"Dakar Rally: Frontline to Finish Line ITV4

A new two part documentary is about to hit our TV screens. Starting on Wednesday 24th and finishing on Friday 26th of this month, Dakar Rally: Frontline to Finish Line will be on ITV4 at 9PM."


I wonder if it would be possible to get a url to stream this event via vlc media player. And, you know, watch a little snooker between shows maybe.

Good old Chavo (Juan Carlos) - pretty sure he has been the most singular influence on taking the Dakar to Bolivia - should be a rather large 2 day party for some.

From Dakar's news page:

"For [Bolivia], this is an opportunity to showcase to the entire world the grandness and mysticism of the Salar de Uyuni", explained the head of state, . . . the seventh stage of the rally, right in the heart of the world's largest salt flat.

[Pointed] out by Etienne Lavigne: "The riders in the motorcycle category will come up against a stage that stands out both for its beauty and for its toughness. Even at the end of the day they will be left to their own resources, since it will be a marathon stage where they'll only be allowed to get assistance from other riders."


Salar de Uyuni

'Dakar Rally a National Priority'

'the approval of a supreme decree'

C'mon now...
Shouldn't Dakar be everyone's supreme decree of national priority?

Go Bolivia! Wish I could be there this year, breaking new ground.

Think anyone will go for land speed records on the salt flats..?
