Thanks to everyone. This was a tough Dakar for me work wise. I couldn't spare near the time I intended or wanted to and quite frankly, I didn't even try to keep up with this thread post wise. I lurked through every post, but mostly stuck to my twitter feed as you all have it well covered here. Big kudos to all the other mods that kept the cliff's notes up to date and steaming along and it's great to see everyone chiming in. The sheer increase in available information from so many different sources shows how much this has grown.

Going from literally no information other that what we could pull from dakar.com and then updates from Charlie when he returned to just about damn near real time updates for almost any rider is sheer madness in such a short time. Nice job everyone, really nice job.

A little announcement over here: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...php?p=20578283

A warning though, it's quote a tome - you might want to grab a beer before you sit down...

Hope to see you there!

Well, it is still euros . Our economy is on the floor for ever and we risk getting kicked out of the euro. I wouldn't count on any significant sponsorship for a Dakar team.

I don't give much about national pride, but the point about nationality is a big one. If you are lucky enough to have a passport from a strong economic power I guess it makes it easier to find a sponsorship. If you're portuguese you represent a bankrupt economy of 10 million people, period. The fact that pilots like Ruben Faria, Helder Rodrigues and Paulo Gonçalves manage to find means to consistently place in the top 10 of Dakar speaks volumes about their value as pilots and about their determination. to them.

Following this thread was an epic challenge for me this year. I was offline during the day and read every post every evening, starting usually more than 100 pages behind! I missed being able to follow the stages live, the best I could manage was a peek at Mischa's monitor on the iphone at lunch time (thank you thank you thank you, Mischa!). But I had a lot of fun reading everything later on, imagining the excitment live. Lots of great humour on the thread, thank you everyone for your contributions on that front as well as on the great info presented. It is great to share this passion with people from everywhere around the globe! I'll see you around at the Bivouac!

This gives a good insight into what dakar is like (from an Aussie and his support who came 24th outright)

Warren Strange has lived with chronic lymphatic leukaemia for 21 years and has finished 24th in the Dakar at 45yo what a star!

Thanks for posting this link, cheers Deb

Sorry, that must have been to the live show.
Try this one, it should be a link to the recorded show.
http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/28910668

(edit: I tried both links and they both work. The JC interview starts about 11 min in.
