Hi Everybody,
after absence in 2011 (I was diving at Simmilan islands near Thailand) I am back doing blog and Eurosport (CZ) commentary etc...
We do not have many bikers in the rally this year (just Jan Vesely) and one quad (5x Dakar winner Josef Machacek). Five trucks, but this is out of my scope.
Honza (familiar name for Jan at us) Vesely passed scrutineering OK, but there are HUGE problems for Josef Machacek and others with modified quads (I got message that problematic are 8 quads in total). I´ve been told that some argentinian riders claimed protest against others and FIM and organisers now negotiate if those quads will be allowed to compete or not. I don´t have exact information, but for sure Josef Machacek is riding same quad as at least 3 polish riders and the quads are modified according to regulations and are street legal etc. I think it is hard to believe, that some riders would be so scared from competition to use protest to eliminate others even before start, but it happened in past (remember 2005 and De Rooy team with DAF trucks)... We will see...
As far, as I understand, Machacek´s quad is not using injection but carburator etc...

If anyone has these files in digital form, it would be great if you could post them here or send me a PM.

Thanks a bunch!
Yip, they're making it harder for people to track the exact route I think.

This is the best I have been able to find so far:



Im hoping they will provide more info on the day.

Here is a link to the interactive pages, it will be interesting to see how they work.

http://gaps.dakar.com/2012/dakar/

Click on the map for any stage.
Be sure to have the icon on the right hand side selected to MOTORBIKES.
You can switch between map and profile, photos of the stage as well, which is something new.

Latest information - 6 quads with modifications will be probably not allowed to enter Dakar 2012 with others, they will open special category for them, but will not rank them in official Dakar qualification. Those include polish rider Rafal Somik and 5x Dakar winner Josef Machacek from Czech republic (they use the same quad produced by Josef Machacek workshop). Josef already mentioned me in late night message, that is totally upset and will not ride in such situation at all. Here is his picture during one of visits in our shop - holding plate for past Dakar in Argentina. We helped him this year (as every year since 2006) with roadbook (carbon version) and secondary IMO unit and few other parts, what he trust and not change, what is proven to work..

Here is Christophe Barrier Varju's trailer for his Dakar, but I think it encapsulates the passion required to finish this race.



Ping CBV; where are you brother?
