Watched a bit of the high lights last night. Looks to be a couple of the top performers have come to some degree of grief. Just goes to show how little thing like lack of navigation can send you off the trail enough to put you out of the race.
Some interesting Stats on costs associated with doing a Dakar race. Really blows my mind how anyone other than sponsored riders/drivers can compete.
With a built bike worth between $25000 upwards of $50000 just so you can compete
Entry fee and so on getting there and having all the necessary equipment to compete we are talking upwards of $100000.
