FOR TAKING BATTER CARE OF YOURSELF
ASO company, that organizes the Dakar, organized a seminary of security for the newcomer pilots of Dakar 2011. There was more than a hundred participants and a luxury teacher: Ciryl Despres.
By Diego Durruty ddurruty@ corsaonline.com.ar http://www.twitter.com/diegodurruty

“This is not one more a race… It is the race. Welcomes to hell”, were the words of the French Etienne Lavigne, director of the Dakar, to inaugurate the security seminary that was dictated last Saturday in Buenos Aires for the newcomer pilots of the legendary race. With that phrase Lavigne achieved that the assistants to the seminary took it very seriously since, as it knows, the Dakar is the hardest race of the world and with a file that includes many tragedies. The people of ASO, the company that organizes the Dakar, took this initiative because the statistics of the last edition showed that the majority of the pilots who left they were of this part of the world. Through this seminary the new runners became familiar with the life in the camping and had a notion of the reading of road-book and the use of the security instruments and navigation. So that the concepts were well clear, the day was in charge of an expert: the French Cyril Despres, winner of the Dakar in 2005, 2007 and 2010. Through recommendations and anecdotes, the participants obtained the necessary information to be well prepared for this event.
“Somehow is the way to maintain that spirit shared in common that is a characteristic of the Dakar. I always wanted to do something like this. I felt very well”, explained the Gaul, who always was willing to evacuate the doubts of those who will be their rivals. But also there were several well-known local faces since ASO invited several Argentine pilots who already ran in the Dakar so that they could tell his experience to the novices. They were the brothers Marcos and Alejandro Patronelli, Eduardo Alan, Rodolfo Baker, Sebastián Halpern, Patxi Otaño and Jose Luis Palma, among others. This day began at 8 and finished past 19 and its result on will be able to verify just from 1º of January of 2011…

It looks like the top of the seat is about even with his elbow - is he short, is that bike super tall, both, or just strange camera angle?

This morning the organizers of the Personal Argentina Chile Dakar announced the details of the 2011 edition, the third in South America, which will be run from January 1st through the 16th.

This year the route takes the competitors to the extreme northern regions of Argentina and Chile, to the Bolivian and Peru borders, just until the rest day at Arica, before heading back towards Buenos Aires. The design of the route, consisting of 9000kms of roads, tracks and dunes, including nearly 5000 of competition, was done with the idea of saving the more difficult stages for the second half of the event to maintain maximum suspense and create a crescendo of difficulty. The competitors and teams are in for an extreme endurance challenge.

Veterans and novices are now ready for the adventure with 430 vehicles expected to line-up at the start of the 32nd edition of the Dakar, which is a near 20% increase from 2010. Beyond the numbers, another accomplishment has already been achieved with the finalisation of a plan to intensify the competition: the elite in the motorcycle division will compete on bikes with engine capacities inferior to 450ccs. This major change has sparked the interest of manufacturers who have entered strong line-ups in the battle for victory. KTM is back with Cyril Despres and Marc Coma, who have combined to win the last five Dakars, and now will race with equal power against Aprilia (Lopez, Duclos…), BMW (Frétigné, Verhoeven…),Yamaha (Viladoms, Rodrigues…), Sherco (Casteu), Honda (Bethys, Pisano…) as well as Beta (Boano). In the automobile category, the potential of Team BMW X-Raid, which will be led by Stéphane Peterhansel and Guerlain Chicherit, poses a more serious threat to Volkswagen. Defending Dakar champion, Carlos Sainz, knows very well that his competition is not just limited to inter team battle with Al Attiyah, De Villiers and Miller. Vladimir Chagin and his Kamaz team mates are the pre-rally favourites in the truck category, but for his return to competition, Gerard De Rooy (Iveco), has just as much ambition to go for the win as does Ales Loprais (Tatra).

Before heading into competition, the vehicles of the European competitors will first head to Le Havre on November 24th and 25th. From there they will cross the Atlantic and head to Buenos Aires. Technical and administrative verifications will be conducted on December 30th and 31st.

What's up with Fretigne, I missed that. Anyone has a link? Is it serious and he won't be competing this year? I kinda like Fretigne, shame if he won't be at the startline...
