Dakar 2013 rider

Just a quick note of recognition to a guy that has more guts than I can make sense of. Ben Grabham rode the Dakar just months after breaking his back hitting a roo at some 150 kph.

He finished the Dakar in a remarkable 14th position. Unbelievable.

Racing forum would be more appropriate, not really LC8/Orange Crush related.

I knew he was in the Dakar but didn't realize he'd finished that high.

Anyhow, he's no slouch on a 2-stroke either:
