two waypoints is odd ... took me 10 min to figure it out until I saw m0t0_ryderís post explaining it to me ...

waiting for the big reveal now at the end ... guess maybe I should try to stay up for that.

Name:
Laia Sanz... 11 Dakars started, 11 Dakars finished. That is a mind-blowing statistic for such a long and difficult race. Of those finishes, 4 have been in the Top 20 overall, 3 have been Top 15, and 1 was Top 10. After a year in which she recovered from torn ligaments in both hands and a nasty bout of Lyme Disease which she is still struggling with, she finishes this 2021 edition of the Dakar Rally in 17th Position overall, and earning her 11th straight win in the Women's Class. There will never be another like her...


https://fb.watch/31lAGqrfQ7/

Laia's first 3 Dakars saw her finish 39th in 2011, 39th in 2012, and 93rd in 2013. There were 200 starters in 2011, 189 in 2012, and 183 in 2013. Laia spent 400 miles of the 2013 race being towed due to a mechanical problem, suffering numerous falls in the process. After getting 1.5 hours of sleep and a new engine (plus the attendant penalties) she charged to the finish and could only manage 93rd position. I remember being so relieved when she finished, and thinking how incredible it was that she finished 3 straight Dakars! The following year, 2014, she would finish 16th, and in 2015 an astonishing 9th overall. The 2015 Dakar had 161 starters and only 79 finishers. It's been an incredible 11 years following this gal. I won't be surprised if we see her on 4 wheels next year. As disappointed as I'd be, I'm ok with it. She has nothing left to prove.

And another Dakar Legend wins his 14'th Dakar!

Stephane Peterhansel

Quote:
He made his Paris to Dakar Rally debut in 1988 in the motorcycle category for Yamaha, later winning the event in 1991, 1992, 1993, 1995, 1997, and 1998. He switched to the car category for 1999, joining the works Mitsubishi in 2003. He went on to win the event for the Japanese marque in 2004, 2005 and 2007, and took his 11th victory in 2013 driving an X-Raid prepared Mini Countryman – making him the most successful competitor in the history of the Dakar Rally.
In 2015 he joined Peugeot as the manufacturer returned to compete in the Dakar for the first time since 1990. He took his 12th and 13th Dakar victory in 2016 and 2017

Congrats to KB, RB and Honda for their excellent race!! Congrats to Skylar Howes for another fantastic finish! Give this guy a ride HONDA! He could be practicing with Brabec all year long. He could win!!

Also wanted to note Matthias Walkner for his steady riding climbing back from 69th place after stage 2 to 9th place finish!!

Also wanted to say to Pierre Charpin and send condolences to his family and friends.

Heal up quick all you other with injuries!

Wow... what a final day, what a Dakar. So many stories. Congrats to Benavides and Honda. Who knew watching little triangles on a map into the wee hours could be so addicting!

And give Howes a ride! He can ride with Ricky and Nacho (who also does a lot of training in the US with Jimmy Lewis and Ricky.) All Americas team of Brabec, Howes, Benavides, and Nacho!

Hope this isn't Honda's last year and they recommit to another 5 years.

Supercross starts tomorrow, you can actually see those riders and the all the races.

Laia is amazing. Such an awesome run.

KB congrats. Ricky solid as hell.. the prolog hurt him bad. Who would think a win would hurt.

Skylar.. just wowsers..!! And yeah sure want to see him get a solid ride. Not sure he has anything left to sell.

So many stories we will never get to share.
