Well done to you and your team. I hope the film gets traction in Europe and the Americas, which translates into sales. God knows it deserves to.


Cheers,

Got mine yesterday, just watched it & I've got to say it the best movie I have on Dakar, really enjoyed it.

I just got my copy today, sat down and watched it this evening with my wife and a freind from Germany who is visiting (so we got to use the German sub titles)
All I can say is Well done Christophe and well done Simon. A gutsy effort to do what you did and a well made film. One that I am sure to watch many times.
Thank you,

I watched my copy yesterday arvo. I really enjoyed the insight behind what it takes to get there. What an epic story. Made me want to jump straight on the bike. Even if it was just around the suburbs for a quick blast..... You can always dream i guess.

Loved it very inspirational. A true testament to never giving up on your dreams

Watched it today, very, very inspirational! I couldn't help comparing it to the Charley Booreman 'Race to Dakar' DVD. Most of the time throughout that DVD Charley seemed to be willing himself to fail, and it seemed that he was relieved that his injuries put him out of the Dakar. But with you Christophe, failing was never an option, even with a fair amount of negativity coming from the film maker! You definitely did it the hard way and finished, congrats on an awesome effort!

IMO the 'Motorsport Journo' could have been edited out, bit of a tool!

That's a bit tuff on the journo, I thought he was funny

This movie and race to dakar really give you great insight into just how tuff it must be
