Not a single Saffer in the bikes category this year?

No money for sponsors?

Probably spot on with that. This Covid thing man  >:(


Just a nice vid from and of Simon Marcic looking the part in every regard.

David Knight entered as a rookie  :biggrin:

It looks like he's confirmed now.  :thumleft:

He had a main sponsor pull out recently and he had to start up a GoFundMe to try and raise the shortfall in really short time. Even as late as early to mid November it was still not certain if he'll be able to go. He had to make the final decision (know if he'll have enough cash raised) by 1 December, the date the bikes get shipped for the race and it looks like he's indeed remaining on the entry list and will race.

There's no doubt that the man has immense trials and enduro talent and he says he's been training exclusively for the Dakar for the last 18 months.

This has the potential to be pretty damn interesting. :sip:

EDIT: Knighter's GoFundMe

YEsterday (and today) there was a bunch of Dakar pics in my feed on FB. I was surprised. Said to myself: What are they up to? The Dakar is only in January next year! That;s still far away.

Then I remembered its December.

Good Red Bull podcast with Cyril Dupres and Mike Horn in the car section - more general than Dakar but interesting.
