Dakar 2015 - who's going??

I fly out to Buenos Aires Sunday 28th - hopefully my XT660 will already be there !

Rough plan is to watch some of the rally and have a good time - shouldn't be too tricky

Just wondering if anyone else from here is going and if so fancy catching up before the event.

Cheers

Eliot

Dakar 2015

I will be flying out on the 30th from Madrid with all the Torque Racing riders and will be wrenching for our LC4-50 with Carl Hagenblad on board.
I will be sending daily updates to Jenny (aka J-Mo) who will be posting on ADV for us.
If you're around the bivvy, come round for some TEA, we are English after all....

Hi.
If you decide to travel to Chile, I'll be in the desert to watch the 9 stage.
January 12 we traveled from Arica to the desert between Iquique and Calama, 13 we watch the rally, 14 we return.
It is usual: camping, bbq, beers, dirtbike riding, etc.; some of the Dakar riders usually stop for water, but you never know.
Any ADV inmate are welcome (Chilean or from everywhere), just send me an email and we get in touch.
Below some photos of the last Dakar (also in the desert between IQQ-Calama).










Cheers mate!
