Anybody on the forum following the Dakar Rally?

We get a half hour daily roundup on Versus channel. Amazing event. Toughest race in the world I think.

For those who wish to read a nice report about how it all came about for one guy from Georgia (USA), Chris Jones, click here.

Dakar 101

His teamate, Elmer Symons was the rider who was killed during this race. Very sad. Chris' post has pictures of Elmer before their race and a nice commentary about him. Very odd and sad to think he is now gone after just reading about him. His brother was the mechanic on the support vehicle. Had to be tough for him.

Check out Round the world 101 for Chris' other adventure. Great read.
