Anyone following it this year?  American Kurk Casalli (top motocrosser) is filling in for injured Marc Coma and doing well for a first go, only his nav skills letting him down.  With Marc out a win forCyril Despres was pretty much a done deal.  Thought he was out when his gearboxblew, but KTM ordered a lower rider to give up his to Cyril so all he got was a15 min penalty.  Did I mention he's French, and so are the organisers?

I'm a big Robbie Gordon (of Indy car fame) fan. His Hummer (really a big 2 wheel drive buggy dressed to look like a Hummer, drives in the buggy class) is fast and although softly sprung, is well damped. When he launches it, all 4 wheels in the air, it lands with only one bounce then level again.  Impressive!

A bit on  the net, assume it is on Eurosport but I dont have that. Was good to lynden Posket (probably spelt wrong) have a top10 stage  finish the other day.

For future reference; the best coverage by a forum is at advrider.com  Huge Dakar following. nearly min. by min updates, links to all the online coverage. Often they have a hand on deck AT the dakar (or two) as well doing updates.  Hell even some participants update directly to AdvRider.

PS- Go check out this years (and other years) media thread full of pics and video
