Dakar Rally


Recommended Posts

Doing it in a car is one thing but on a bike is truely something.


I did see that series on DVD by Charlie Boorman (Obi-Wans mate, you know from the long way round & down?) called 'Race to Dakar' that he did back in 2006.


What an epic mental race that is. Multiple people die on it every year and he had to quit after breaking both his hands.


He had to ride about a couple hundred k's with broken hands. Ouch!
