I am not sure if this fits here or should be a separate topic, as it does not refer specifically to the Dakar 2021

So....Brett and the rest of the SA teams flew out of OR Thambo this morning to Adis.
Tonight they fly to Saudi on a chartered Jumbo 747....imagine that cost!
Then, apparently 2 days hotel isolation.

U tube Simon Marcic - lots of good bits- He has done a few Malle Moto Dakars - good videos through the race but also seeing Darryl Curtis issuing him with his roadbook and seeing Tay Perry's and her bike in the background. In 2017 Peterhansel drove into Marcic ending his Dakar with a broken  leg/bike. Peterhansel followed up with him daily on his recovery and even paid for his 2018 Dakar - Marcic just raved about the Peterhansel- being his hero and what a gentleman he was

Nothing like watching the old dakars to pass time- camping kit rucksacks and garden gloves

So what is actually happening now that the official KSA flightban has been extended for another week and the mandatory isolation period far exceeds the first few stages of the dakar. Is everyone there already?

Concessions are being made, chartered flights coming in, and competitors being quarantined for 2/3 days. It's a go!  :ricky: :ricky: :ricky:

I thought James Alexander looks a bit old for Dakar and checked - he's about my age ::)

Just shows, where there's passion and a will, you'll find a way :thumleft:

True - there is not a too old for Dakar and certainly there have been many 50+ year olds compete. Carlos Saintz is 58 and Stephane Peterhansel is 55. Last year saw Yoshimasa Sugawara (from Japan), a 73 years old truck driver!

There was a guy in his early 60's I think, riding Malle Moto, every second year, so he could save up by missing a year each time.  :biggrin:
