That is both a sad but also a wonderful picture. A man doing what he loves best and doing it very very well indeed.

Fox Sports - Road to Dakar

Prior to Andy's last Dakar, Fox Sports did a feature on him called 'Road to Dakar'.

The documentary is an interview with Andy about his early days and his previous Dakar attempts.

I have the AVI file but need to find a way to upload it as its 350meg.

Love to see that - do you know anything about torrents ? If you are willing to go that way, and I'm sure it's not too difficult, I'm sure people on here would be willing and able to show you the way ? Let me know and I'll point a couple people who know of that sort of thing to this thread.

It's a good doco. I got it off TPB a while back. It's still on there listed with some seeds. So by all means go ahead and download and keep it alive.

RIP, Andy.



His teammate, David Schwarz in on the rally this year.



It's been two years since Elmer's passing, too.
