    Well.. Sainz needs 4:30 every day on average to win. I think it’s doable since the 3 longest specials are still to come.

    I agree. Its about 50% skill, 50% luck out there, imo. You never know who will breakdown, if there's an unmarked hazard, etc, etc. Happens every single year.

    I'd like to see Price move his way up.

    GDV may need a miracle but I'm still rooting for him!

    Yes... I’d take any underdog at this point. Anyone but the Patriots! Err umm. I mean SPH

    Amazing how close the bikes are vs how much of a gap there is in cars. I didn’t think Price would be able to hang given how little seat time he’s had and the injuries he’s trying to come back from

    Sounds like possible altitude sickness (headache and sick to his stomach)? I believe it said he was somewhat disoriented after finishing the first of the two specials today.

    As much as I’d like to see Team USA do well... I prefer to see Toby win on bikes. Got to follow him around a bit when we were prerunning the thousand in 16.. he is super cool and man can he wheel a TT.

    I spent some time with him in Morocco and found the same thing. Just super cool and super friendly...don’t think he’s ever met a stranger

    I would really like to see a brand other than KTM win. It won't happen soon, but a win for Sherco would be awesome. Talk about an underdog. In reality, I would like to see Honda get a win.

    Gazoo needs to dig these out of the shop. Next year, come back 2wd.

    Anyone know how many were built ? Where are they now ?

    Why did they develop them, and not put them to use. B62386F1-4BC1-4B11-9D64-34A69C20E424.jpeg

    Too bad they aren't in La Paz longer. Cabo is right down the 19 and is tons of fun...

    AMS leading to HAPE if he doesn't get down...it happens every year they go to these elevations to some of the drivers.

    Good to see my lone real Nissan left and the brand new Dakar spec car coming out of SA in 25th...bodes well for them bringing 1/2 a dozen these to '19.
