Very sad news about the Dakar, I was looking forward to following the race again this year. I have just been reading about the British riders taking part and the cost in terms of time and commitent they have put in, sadly for some this was a once in a lifetime opportunity to take part this year. Hope the situation improves for next year.

Anyone want a 742 map??!
There are about 4 threads running on this theme right now; we are obviously all "hurt".

Personally, I invested £4.99 in a new 742 Michelin map to follow this better on TV than my usual state of ignorance of the geography - not wasted of course, I might get there one day!!

This is bad news, I was looking forward to following it on Pc as well.

Imagine what Charley Boormans reaction would of been if this had happened during the filming of his DVD.

He would have had kittens.

And rightly so.

I feel sorry for all the privateers who have spent a fortune in getting there.

I bet they get smashed out of their heads tonight.

They will all have visas etc, Id go down and have a ride in the dunes just to say I had done it.

Is this a case of the terrorists winning ?

Definitely the case, and so easily achieved, but you have read that already:-
