Wat het van die ouens geword wat die Dakar Challenge in Botswana gewen het ?

Weet daar is n SA Nissan Navara wat deur die Jurgen Shroden gaan ry, (Alfie Cox se ou pel).

Enige Ford's die jaar?

Century racing?

Do you guys think I should sticky the thread or is it still too early.  Also shall we keep this thread going as a buildup only or run it through to the end of the Dakar???  8) :o  :biggrin:

So awesome to have so many saffas in this one! We are going to be following you all closely! Hammer to the Donkey boys and enjoy it! :thumleft:

Donovan: Can you tell us a little about how it felt to be at Le Havre? :deal:

Getting real! Countdown of some of the top riders in contention - pity they don't rate Paulo Goncalves? He must be one of the faves to take it.

Have to say I hope Joan Pedrero finishes. Those bloody Sherco's have a poor record of finishing.  >:( He is a top rider, and deserves a break after all these years. Dakar is a brutal mistress.

Perhaps someone could ask the Yamaha team to start riding so long, so they have a bit of a chance? 8)
