Stages 4 through 8 see the Dakar move out of the sandy deserts of southern Peru an into the rocky mountains, the valleys filled with loose “fesh fesh” and the high speed, gravel-covered plateaus of the Andes, crossing over into Argentina in the process. Here’s the best photos from the last four days.

    While these may not get commented on with the same regularity or enthusiasm, I love the Dakar and appreciate your coverage.

    I’m going to use the word, “Epic” here, and actually have it mean something.

  • Mad Duck

    Another amazing “reality show” that gets overlooked by mainstream media in the USA. :( Probably since it cannot be manipulated.

    There’s a thread in the racing section of advrider that follows the Dakar minute by minute from various tracking sources. That’s how I spend my mornings for the first few weeks of January every year. Lots of great info and insight.
