Seen that, guess the one infront does not always know what is going on behind him. Dunno what Rudi had for breakfast, he is right up there with the little Honda! :)

Front runners on a 2015 'road'  they are on now was a special with a time restriction - if failed you could not enter the special...

Very rocky very hard...  Would be interesting to hear their comments as it was hard going to Pofadder, now it is the other way...

Some have special memories of this stretch in 2015 - farm hospitality

Not really.

You must hold the mouse over the flag and look at the last update time.  Gerrit's was 50 minutes ago.  That is the MOST STRESSFUL for me as we dont know where they are NOW.

Pretty gutting to be at the finish without my bike, engine ceased at about 23km from the start this morning. Riders still trickling back in, its a hot and long day. Willem just has been handed the dakar challenge trophy. Congratulations!


Poor Mark k crashed badly near the start of the special, and broke his pelvis in a bad rocky section. He is on a plane to cape town for an op, condition serious but stable

I understand that willem won overall and the dakar challenge

Donovan got malle moto and 2nd open.

Jethro got 2nd malle moto and 3rd open class.

Malle moto kick some team ass ;D

Very well done to all who finished this epic race. It was great riding, through really beautiful and wild areas with a good technical mix.

I believe there are 3 bikes at least stuck out there with mechanicals.

Ill write about my epic experience another time.
