Not nice to see there Klajunas. Maybe consider pulling the clip and allowing people to hunt for it if they really want to see it?
this isnt even Dakar video - this is Russia, either Astrakhan or SIlk Way a year or so ago when they allowed idiot bloggers instead of real journalists. They all went out of a designated area on this dune for photo opportunities. The guy who was hit was hospitalized but got away relatively unharmed - couple of broken bones.

Man, that thing sounds schweet!!

You can tell the 2WD suspension is really eating him up though. They are able to flat foot over things he’s lifting for.

hard day for our driver Vanagas - 2 rear semiaxles changed, rear wheel hub broken when they fell over from the cliff, lost loads of time and they didnt drive the last part as night came in - for that they got 24h penalty. At least todays stage had two places where service was allowed - both were used :)
As for Coronel mentioned - he says that Coronel has a saying 'at least one day in a Dakar is very very hard' - this year Vanagas had 3 out of 4 very hard days :)
At least Thursday's stage went well for Vanagas, finished 14th
