Ja the eco race is awesome and is pretty much the original dakar as they claim. Makes on wonder how they get away with it when the dakar as a race decided to leave. They might take over as the premium even eventually I suspect.
- you reckon that thing will pop a wheelie? We're about to find out, SLAP that pig!

They just need the big names of today to take part, the guys on the bikes looks a lot slower than the Dakar boys. Just imagine if Stefan Peterhansel rocked up at the Africa Eco race. I'm confident though that the Dakar will be making it's way back to Africa anyway.

Yeah, bring the Dakar back home to Africa.  How about a "long way down" type of Dakar ending in SA?
