It's that time of year again.

Dakar 2017 stage 1 has been won and done.

For all racing missed you can catch up with the results at:
http://www.dakar.com/index_DAKus.html#

For Australian members SBS is again broadcasting a 1/2 hour highlights package daily at 1730hrs AEDT. Check your local guides for viewing times.
Sadly for us antipodeans it's another viewing year without the extended free to air televised coverage.

I'm amazed again this year of how hard those trucks charge ahead over tough terrain.

So go set the daily recording now so none of the action is missed.

Toby now in the lead after stage 2, picked up about 5 mins from yesterday on the pack to be 3.5 mins ahead. Long way to go.

That's an impressive documentary.

We are watching the Dakar here every night as well. Dutch tv, through some proxy because they (A.S.O.) don't allow content to be viewed outside the station's country. And we don't have NBCSN here.

So if anyone knows another (online) source, feel free to share.

Toby Price out with a broken femur - bugger.
Hopping it's an easy recovery for him.

Its a shame for sure. Still, ride dirt bikes and........

There'll be a new winner no matter what now I believe.

Day 6 washed out and it's a high altitude desert route.
