Thankfully he's ok. Out of the race but not seriously injured.

A friend of mine did Paris-Dakar. I'd like to do it in theory, but in practice, not so much.

A pit I worked back in the 2008 Baja 1000 had us take in anyone who needed help, in addition to our primary racer, Cameron Steele, who was in a Trophy Truck. One guy from Argentina came in. He was a guy who had done a few Dakar races in the past. He told us the Baja 1000 was a shitload tougher than any Dakar he had previously run.

We let him rest while we worked on his bike, which was running like shit.

I can't imagine competing in either race. They are both extremely physically and mentally demanding. I'm happy to work the pits.

I was thinking the same. It's very long and essentially shows the same 4 shots of a Busa at 28mph.
