I am old school, yes I understand the logistics, but the Dakar "Malle" is like the TT totally different but the same, for the TV rights you need the big brands, but the essence of Dakar is Malle Moto, to quote a factory rider not precisiely but near enough, would you ride Malle Moto " never...they look like cave men and some of them wear the same outfit for the 2 weeks"  ::) ::)
