Next thing you know you call Hogwild and he finds the exact co-ordinates of the spot he crashed

Naaah... the Oz outback is outside of Scott's comfort zone I reckon... that's my old playground. I'd call my mate Richie Hayes (descendent pastoralist son of the Hayes family - one of the pioneer families of Central Australia). From a photo he would be able to identify exactly where it was and then walk you to the location.

That being said, I am pretty sure that Darryl crashed on a stage that was set on either the Maryvale or Deep Well cattle stations.

Aussie ADV fans and followers of the Finke Desert Race will recognise those names.

Holding the roadbook in that position for sure didn't help him

A bit of history ...

Quote:
Prologue - Saturday, August 18
but the surprise result was former 500cc grand prix rider Daryl Beattie (10) who was fourth fastest over the section in his off-road racing debut. Beattie had lined up for the event as part of a three-man team backed by Honda Australia. Greenfield was part of the factory line-up.
Quote:
Day One - August 19: Alice Springs to Ayers Rock - 480 miles total; 344 miles competitive divided into three stages.
It was an early start for the long first leg of the event - and an early finish for former 500cc hamp, Daryl Beattie (10) after a crash which dislocated his collarbone and damaged a previously injured shoulder.
Beattie had been in fourth position when he went into a dry creek bed and was flung off his factory-backed Honda XR650 about half-way through the day.
"I went into a dry creek bed too hot and looked down at the map reader a little too long. The front washed out and I was thrown off, falling on my shoulder. I'm really disappointed that I have to pull out because I was enjoying the challenge."
Indeed then, RB position was too low

(PS: Gian's post - about Kevin - was directly above the one I posted about Darryl... which is why I did not mention Schwantz.)

PPS: I was competing in the 2000 Safari that Schwantz rode... I remember it well.

Doctor and the Dakar can only mix in a bucket list / adventure type endeavor not a competitive one and for sure not in 2015.
April fools, comes late in some parts of Europe I guess, as a kid I would make a whole week of festivities out of it.

Don't get me wrong, I love the guy and would never doubt his abilities on a bike, but anyone buying this is smoking some good stuff.


(i want some)

Get in touch with the Speed fans over on Planet RG around about the 15th of December (that's usually when Robby makes the first press release about whatever his lastest Dakar all conquering effort is gonna be... ).

Going on the past record, the hyped faithful must smoke/toke/drop some real good stuff...

So I watched the highlights from the last race... Gordon dropped out due to fuel starvation problems? What about the other American off-road truck guy?

B.J. Baldwin and Quinn Cody: Didn't that vehicle break down too? I think it was something about the air intake maybe.

I think this is the R Gordon approach to preparing each year's Dakar effort:

the whole "let's build a car, do a one day "test" at glamis and head for dakar" approach seems to work out
depending on what you got in the pipe
