    First Americans to win the DAKAR Rally

    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...

    I'd take either. At my age I'm capable of neither. I thinking winning the Dakar on a bike is cooler than winning it in a car.

    Congratulations Skyler Howes! Heck of a job! Is this his first Dakar? What do you guys know about him? Wonder why he doesn't race for JCR?

    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...

    RB through PK119, first on time! Go Ricky! RB came to race a motorbike today!

    I think it's shorter for bikes as well. I'm seeing DSS PK69 PK 119 ASS This is shorter than how it was listed earlier today. RB is almost through PK119. This thing is almost a wrap. Time for a toast of champagne!

    PM me your phone number. I'll call you and shout wooHOO! Here we go baby! Ricky and Honda are about to earn a very respectable badge of honor. Hang in there Honda! One final stage. Ricky can win this stage if he wants to. He starts 10th, 27 minutes behind the leader.

    There's something about boobytraps that I don't like. Is it against the race rules for a spectator to wave a flag or a towel and alert the drivers? Are spectators allowed to go fifty yards up the trail and give the "slow down" gesture with your arms and body? If the spectators are allowed to do...

    I keep getting a "Security Error" notice at the RDC website

    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...
