1 stage left. You better expect we're gonna see a war on the bikes tonight. Ricky is 6th off the line and Skyler is 13th. Kevin goes off 3rd and Sam will start the special. 225 KM special, lots of racing left.

Jones is 4th off the line. Francisco will open the stage. @wayne matlock will be 7th off the line and still has a chance at a top 10!

Nasser made up 2 minutes on SPH in Stage 11 and will open the stage. SPH starts 2nd. Let's see if SPH will risk running Nasser's pace, who will certainly be all out!

something tells me this will be his last self-funded Dakar. Sitting 5th OA with 1 stage left.

Skylar Howes has shown that he deserves a factory ride in my opinion. He has done well over the last few years and has been very impressive this year.

I was more than surprised that he didn't get a factory ride this year when other folks that he smoked last year got a renewed/new contract. I know that there are politics involved but still... I wanted to grab one of his shirts but the XLs were out of stock so I sent him a message on Instagram and within a minute he let me know that they would be back in stock on a certain date. That "man of the people" moment made me a bigger fan so I am stoked he is doing even better this year.
