Ok I am facinated by Anastasiya , she is so small and cute and likable and friendly and capable and she is .......................Russian.
I mean she has the Russian police as a sponsor. That's kinda intriguing and scary at the same time .  :biggrin:

Translated from Russian

Meet and be proud: Russian Anastasia Nifontova, the first woman to beat the Dakar rally alone!
The article "The Quintessence of Steepness" in the "Wikipedia" should illustrate her photos. For example, here such, as in this collection.
Text: Mark Zalkind

( trying to find the link )


"While you are wrapping yourself in a cozy stove and drinking hot valenki with burning tears of longing for the barefoot summer, sly riders from all over the world have taken shelter from the weather and cold in Peru: the 41st super-superperper-adult shooter prestigious Dakar rally marathon took place there.
About the fact that the Russian team "KAMAZ-master" won for the 16th time in history (and its leader, Eduard Nikolaev, for the fourth time in his career), let him tell you the website of the Freight Chronicle or neighbors in line for a minibus. Our mission on this planet is to tell you about the sports feat of our compatriot and motorcycle racer Anastasia Nifontova.
Protecting the colors of the Russian anthem in the Original by Motul category (cruel thing: participants are forbidden to take a mother, grandmother and even a mechanic on the road - if something happens, it is necessary to repair the equipment with your own little hands and proudly reject the help extended by the outside world), she did what you ( Yes, and we, which is already there) can never: became the first woman to beat the distance alone! Thousands of kilometers, for a minute (to make it clearer, these are millions of your walker from the couch to the fridge).
In the final classification of Original by Motul Anastasia, writes Eurosport, became the ninth, and in the overall standings of motorcyclists - the 60th.

If you are asked about Anastasia in the fascist dungeons, say the following: I was born on January 19, 1979 (that is, tomorrow she is 40!). Master of sports of international class in motorsports, double world vice-champion (2014 and 2016), vice-champion of Dakar 2017 in the women's competition and so on and so forth. The only girl in Russia who entered the national top three in the five types of racing: motocross, enduro, cross-country rally, supermoto, road-ring races. Wound up? Okholoni: married, two children - a daughter and a son.
We congratulate our compatriot with success and offer to look at her health gallery of rare photos from her social networks. In these pictures, she doesn’t rush anywhere, doesn’t win anything - she just makes the world a better place with her handiness, charm and fervent look! "

The Russians are pretty tough people.

Right 2 things

 1. the navigation must be extremely tricky! I would battle to ride with any speed and do that - respect!

2. Did you see Ross being interviewed by Joey - the last 30 seconds is classic

I para phrase but he asks “hypothetically if you were riding the women’s class what position would you have come?”

Nothing hypothetical about it he was beaten by a girl  :lol8:

Lol - agreed - when you get beaten fair and square you man up and take it on the chin

There a video from Toby Price on his Facebook page now, filmed at his doctor, where they are looking at xray's and the doctor is saying Toby's wrist is basically separating and will require another operation.

I'm not sure what a separating wrist is but the gap the doc is pointing out doesn't look good.

I think Toyota should hire him to be in their next Tougherer advert.

It must be seriously painful when a screw 'windscreen wiper' inside a bone.   :o

I hope he does not come to regret the decision to ride this Dakar in later years.

I am sure he will have a bionic wrist at the end of the day - will be much the same as always - Either ON or OFF  :ricky:

I have to say I think the current top riders are probably just as tough as the guys back in the Dakar glory days. Toby win with a broken wrist, Walkner broken ankle and Quintania also have a major crash and finishes on a broken ankle.

I don't think Coma or especially Depres would have done what these guys did.

Did BB not retire one year because of a sprained thumb or something ?

Bruised ego maybe?

I must say I enjoy Simon Pavey. His son is also interesting to listen too.

As mentioned somewhere in the thread... rumours persist of the Dakar coming to southern Africa.
