Kuba Przygonski, Jacek Czachor and Marek Dabrowski take their training seriously near the small village of Mhamid in the Zagora region of Morocco. It is here where the sand dunes of the Sahara begin, the ideal preparation ground for the greatest rally on Earth. They tested their machines for the last time in the demanding desert sands before The Dakar kicks off in Peru on January 5th.
