Let's talk about Ricky.
A friend told me that Ricky entered a couple of National Hare and Hounds this year, and won everything he entered. I don't care if this is precisely true or not, but it got me curious as to what all has Ricky won, prior to Dakar 2020?
Did he win any hare and hounds this...
That's a wrap! He did it!
Congratulations Ricky! This is one heck of an achievement!
This one comes with a little bit of a bite. We lost a fellow warrior, maybe a fellow madman. I mention Paulo because we want him to be a part of this moment. We don't want to forget him. I mention him to...
Rally Raid in open desert and sand is interesting. Ricky is fastest guy out there, but today he can be really fast because he has the confidence that comes from following so many tracks in front of him. Having these tracks to follow today is his reward for running such a great race. Good...

PM me your phone number. I'll call you and shout wooHOO!

For me, RDC loads faster the past couple of days, and the annoying error message seems to be gone for good. Thank you Klaus. Now I can get back to the important work of following racing, race culture, and posting drivel.
Although it does not come out the day after race day, I think we get better helo shots of the 1000, then they are getting of the Dakar. The video helo in the Dakar looks like he's moving pretty fast the entire day. These are production goal decisions. I still enjoy the race. No point in...
