The remoteness and sheer scale of the Dakar makes it nearly impossible to cover. Rather than try and bring you live results (Bikes In The Fast Lane is a good place for those) we’re going to focus on sharing photos and videos that illustrate what makes the South American race so special. Today we have these action shots of Red Bull riders Cyril Despres (current race leader), Marc Coma and Ruben Faria all mounted on restricted 690cc KTMs. Video recaps of the first two stages follow the jump.  >

    Let’s not forget our American privateer hopeful (and previous stage winner from past years) Jonah Street. I’m pissed that RedBull USA doesn’t have a team entered. There’s enough bad-ass American racers to do some serious damage in the Dakar.
