DAKAR 2020
« on: January 02, 2020, 03:02:10 PM »
the DAKAR starts in a couple days, Saudi Arabia this year. KTM has a strong lineup as usual (the winners of the last 4 are all back on a KTM) will this be the year that ends the 18 year wining streak? Will Brabec pull it off for the Americans? Will Laia Sainz be the first woman to win it?

also does anyone know where to watch it?  I have the app, but that is it so far?

I think once again YouTube will be the best place to watch.

Also remember that Supercross starts again this Saturday.

A sad day at the Dakar with the loss of Paulo Gonçalves. A sad end to a great day for Brabec and the Honda team.

only 2 stages left and Brabec is leading by 25 minutes, hopefully he can stay in the lead. closest KTM is 28min. back, this could be the end of the winning streak.

And I think it's awesome. Not sure if you are following the Africa Eco race. Lyndon Poskett has a team racing and their vlogs are very good. Can be found at Races2places on youtube.

Brabec pulled it off! Congrats for ending KTM's run and becoming the first American to win the Dakar.
