I'm hoping to get the links to any TV, etc coverage from here
http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=851988

Last year one helpful inmate posted updates on youtube from a station we don't get here. Sometimes you had to be fast to watch them before they were pulled especially toward the end but I saw most of them He posted the links in the Dakar video thread, hopefully they'll show up in the thread posted above.

You would think that one of the sports networks would show it up here, considering how many hours of hockey they are not showing this year.

There's no way I'm going to be able to keep up with the F5irehose but the media thread is a little less intensive and here's a link to the Eurosport coverage http://uk.eurosport.yahoo.com/motorsport/dakar/
There was an awesome tracking page posted up by one of the inmates and when I find that I'll post the link here too - after that you're on your own!
