    ★ Dakar 2020 - Stage 4: Neom > Al-`Ula

    18:14 Guthrie by 19 seconds! It's only taken Dakar rookie Mitchell Guthrie four days to take his first stage win. The 23-year-old American beat Aron Domżała by a mere 19 seconds. Meanwhile, José Antonio Hinojo has risen to the top of the general classification. Huge stage win! :)

    Great tip on the sportity app, it has all the information you get daily being a participan, hardcore followers will be very happy. One example is the attached lexicon of the road book. :)

    The "Official" Dakar 2020 Thread

    Seems like a good year to roll this out if the course is really 75% sand (dunes)? Hard to be too precise with the road book if picking the best racing line over the humps/bumps and monitoring the CAP heading/existing tracks is paramount… :)

    Meet the New Faces of Off-Road Racing – Red Bull Off-Road Junior Team USA

    No, just a huge fan of American’s racing The Dakar. Having been there twice it’s real easy for me to know what everyone is living through. Last year was brutal, it will be very interesting to see what the conditions will be like in Saudi Arabia. Look forward to following along with everyone… 🇺🇸

    ★ Dakar 2019 - Stage 10: Pisco > Lima

    True and when the race was in Africa the support vehicles that traveled from bivouac to bivouac were all large 4X and 6X euro style large trucks. The “assistance route” between bivouacs had tons of dirt sections so a standard US style semi rig wouldn’t have cut it, no motorhomes either. RG is...

    ★ Dakar 2019 - Stage4: Arequipa > Tacna

    Yes the amount of effort, experience, along with having the systems in place is huge, many years in the making. So fun to follow this race when the USA is well represented. Great job to RB and JCR Honda on the win today and overall lead in the moto’s. :)

    Best Dakar I have seen yet

    ^^^Yes^^^ Remembering back to Africa in 2007 I would say the dune routes of Peru are more difficult and problematic for sure. Some of the routes (Cap Headings) over the dunes in Africa are used by local inhabitants to some degree so there seemed to be more of a method to the madness with less...
