Taye is riding super well and has been steadily climbing through the ranks.  :ricky:

Mirjam Pol is just too fast for her and Kirsten... for now.
Yup, let us not forget that this is Taye and Kirsten's first Dakars. That they are still running and doing well is brilliant. After this learning curve they'll be much more competitive next time, I think. Hope they can raise the money for 2021.

I think Ricky Bobby deserves the win at this stage. I hope his Honda holds out until the end.

Even though Im still hoping for Toby to take the win ::)

I guess he's just a mechanic and these things doesn't bother him   :ricky: :ricky:

Not a very nice thing to say Leo.

Dink darem nie die ou het dit neerhalend bedoel nie,  bedoel maar net n mechanic is dalk minder gefokus op spelling as n professor in literatuur. :thumleft:

Since KTM is on a roll now appointing brand ambassadors I agree 100%. They are incredible athletes and a true inspiration to lady riders, especially those aspiring to race. Watching them excel in the Dakar I am PROUD to have had the honour to race with them at the GXCC's ,following in their tracks. They are true legends, few people truly realizing how incredibly talented and tough they are, often setting better times then most of the men! Ladies like Laia, Taye, Kirsten, Mirjam, Sara and the others before them are all paving the way forward for women's rally racing. Hopefully the ladies class will only grow and grow. I really hope they get the sponsorship/support they deserve going forward :thumleft:

Quick question ( chances are I am too dumb to understand why ) why do they make bikes open the stage for navigation when the cars have a navigator on board?


I dont mind because I think it makes bikes the ultimate class but just wondering

Nice video on Laia - she talks in Spanish, but her riding skill is easy to see.  :notworthy: :notworthy:

The humility Ross shows, and his willingness to share the dream with us is what makes his story so awe-inspiring. 
People like Ross is Dakar to me.
May this young man stay as humble as he is, and may the smile last forever.

It is at the request of the bikers for safety reasons from what I have read.

The cars/SS churn up the track too much which then makes it difficult for the bikes.

I think there was a stage last year in South America where the cars opened first and the feedback was not good.
I know nothing but I can not prove it,,,,,

I'll rather take the churned-up stuff than having these fast cars and trucks come up from behind. :eek7:
