Welcome back superstar Chavo.


Be sure to check out the Cliff notes there are only 21 pages of condensed notes, but you will have look in here (at least your Bolivian stages to really enjoy the comments on the big day in Uyuni).


You are so right, Bolivia is a riders Paradise. I will be sure to contact you next time I am there.


Arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrriba Bo li li li li liiiviaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

If I knew what content was displayed in the video I could probably find it somewhere for you...

I missed watching it when it was posted... I think it was a compilation of standard ASO footage though? I presume?

Well thanks everybody that was rooting for me, the Bolivia stages were very special to me and all of the Bolivians as you could see.
My country has so much to show, but it is hardly exploited. The fellow advriders that have been here can tell you…
If anybody of Advrider wants to stop by in Santa Cruz, let me know and we can go out for a beer.
As my great mechanic 690RR said, I enjoyed working together and I had zero problems on my bike, only the ones inflicted by me… crashes !@*&^%$*

Please also PM me links to videos I can watch of the race other than the dakar.com videos…

Thanks!!

Well done Chavo, Bolivian TV was amazing - 80% you (cough cough) - are you a rockstar also, because that was the way it looked?

I expect you will be over here for ADDC, Qatar and Pharoans soon, so good luck.

Congratulations Chavo, both for your placing (what an amazing effort) and for Bolivia, they were without a doubt the best days of the race for us (the first day especially, Sunday).

Best wishes for the year ahead, I hope to see you racing in your country once again baring your flag in 2015...

Chavo, congratulations on an amazing achievement, few can attempt it and even fewer can complete the course, I salute you!

As others have mentioned, Bolivia was one of the best highlights of this incredible event, I loved watching the footage and the live TV. Probably the best coverage ever for any Dakar, bravo!

I wish you many happy and safe miles, with many more completed races and podiums. I didn't know about you until this race and now I am a fan.

I wanted to add my congratulations to you for a great race. And I'm one of the ADV'ers that has been to your country. I rode through there last year and watching the race footage brought back many of the great memories. I want to go back NOW!!!!
