I've watched every one of their daily videos going back several years now. That canyon was insane, amazing that they made it out and the buggy survived running over the rocks.

Plus the brotherly dialog:

GAAHHH.... WHAT ARE YOU DOING????

I don't think I'd seen them before your post ... the two of them talking and hugging at the end was awesome, looking just like brothers ...

This is cool, some on-boards from some non-factory riders including an American and a woman digging deep for inner strength.

Wait, a woman on a Yamaha? Move over, Laia.

Ricky still leading the overall classification at the halfway point.

Great article/blog here on Scot Hardens website talking about the history of American involvement in Dakar, Marathon Rally Raid events, our results, and the obstacles to compete at the highest level. For those of you to ever to wonder why an American hasnt won yet when dessert racing is in our blood, its a VERY good read.


Go Team America, Any One But KTM, and Laia Sanz! I want to see her finish top 15 and cut Toby Price's mullet off.

Thanks for the link, CJ. I remember reading that a year or so ago. Excellent stuff, and glad it was brought to my attention again. I have a lot of respect for Scot Harden. I was really bummed when he left Husqvarna for the last time and went to Zero. The company really needed his steady hand. Everyone on the KTM wagon totally owes this dude a debt of gratitude.

I had to chuckle a bit when, towards the end of the article, he says "Once Dakar starts, time stops, the outside world collapses and you are suspended in a coccoon consisting of your motorcycle, your roadbook, your tent, your team, your fears and aspirations." Just replace "your motorcycle, your roadbook, your tent" with "your computer, your phone, your coffee" and, well, that's pretty much me during Dakar Eric knows there won't be any clean clothes in the closet or dinner on the table til it's over.

I was bummed to see her drop out. Her teammate/boyfriend who was doing the Malle Moto class with her, is still in it, currently sitting in 104th place, 26 hours and 14 minutes behind the leader.

Rest day!


youtu.be/dfi5XO1T6aU

let’s think about slowing down in Dakar over the years ...

Quote:
It's the 1988 DAF 95 Turbotwin X1.

After winning the 1987 Paris-Dakar rally with its 1,000+ hp "Turbotwin II," the Dutch truckmaker (and Dakar-trucking mastermind and driver Jan de Rooy) returned in 1988 with the gorillashit-insane X1.

How do you make an 11-ton truck go 150 mph?

Two 11.6-liter diesel engines, each fed by three turbochargers, producing 1,200 horsepower and a space-time-ripping 3,466 lb-ft of torque.

EACH.

That's 2,400 hp and near-as-dirt 7,000 lb-ft.

It also had a lightweight aluminum spaceframe, which counteracted the weight of all that mid-mounted diesel powah.



youtu.be/7Sc1YihBMCI

Mr Meoni ... fast 500lb twin-cylinder eight-valve racebikes in the dunes ...



true point-to-point Sahara remoteness ... epic Africa vistas ...
LC4s and BMW 650s in the vid, too ...

just love how the Dakar in South America seems to have helped develop the 450cc engines into pretty reliable lumps over 5000 km ... guessing we’ll see them use navigation and terrain to further slow the motos if necessary ... suppose less hp than now would make the sand and fesh-fesh no fun ...
