    Default 2013 Dakar

    To start in Lima, Peru and end in Santiago, Chile. Through Argentina.
    This could be cool, hitting the sand in the first days. Ending in Santiago. That will be great. I'm already excited.

    first leg tonite waiting for it to air, sadly in the UK we only get an hour of coverage of the dakar and most of that is of the race leaders I'd love to see more of the true spirit of the dakar e.g. the privateers.

    glad the miserable git jean-louis schlesser is no longer on the scene a poor looser for sure, though cyril despres could do with a beating from the happy stick what a miserable git.

    I think robby gorden has what it takes to win this year.

    updates here: http://uk.eurosport.yahoo.com/motorsport/dakar/

    regards all

    For those of us without cable TV, does anyone know a good site online we can watch the daily recap videos or even live video? Much appreciated!

    It looks as though they have a live feed link on the Dakar website. On the home page, http://www.dakar.com/index_DAKus.html , click the drop down menu, 2013 Edition, and you should see the live feed link. Hope it works when the time comes. They have apps we can download as well for play-by-play on our smartyphones.

    There's some content here: http://uk.eurosport.yahoo.com/motorsport/dakar/
    Planet Robby, as well as the other teams, usually post up some videos and updates: http://www.planetrobby.com/

    you can guess who I'm cheering for. I'm curious if any of the other drivers jumped the presentation platform?

    FYI for those with iPhones I just downloaded the official Dakar app and although all of the reviews are negative mine is working just fine. Hopefully, it will have live updates from each day. I will post up after today's first stage is complete.
