televised dakar

well is it?

have seen none of it and i love to watch it.

It’s on British Eurosport but there is no bike specific coverage. British Eurosport website is good for news and vids as is the dakar website and you can track riders on a stage too.

British rider Mark Extance is currently in 22nd place in the bikes after stage 5 up from 47th - no mean feat…


there’s some good vids being posted on here too…

It’s on Eurosport at about 10pm each evening. They have been showing some of the bikes in a couple of the shows but just concentrate mostly on a handful of the factory riders.

Have you seen Race to Dakar with Charley Boorman?, it’s well worth the watch!.. pick it up on DVD from Amazon for about £10.

The books a good read too.
