DAKAR 2020
« on: January 02, 2020, 03:03:57 PM »
the DAKAR starts in a couple days, Saudi Arabia this year. KTM has a strong lineup as usual (the winners of the last 4 are all back on a KTM) will this be the year that ends the 18 year wining streak? Will Brabec pull it off for the Americans? Will Laia Sainz be the first woman to win it?

also does anyone know where to watch it?  I have the app, but that is it so far?

I haven't searched for the best places to watch the race this year.  I'm pulling for Sainz and Brabec, for sure.  I'm also interested to see how Alonso does.

It looks like NBC Sports is still providing delayed coverage.  For me and Sheri, we're keeping up with it here

Just find the English version of each update and rock on.  They provide three main updates, Trucks, Cars, and Bikes/Quads.

Brabec #1 after 3 stages, could this be the year that not only sees KTM lose but an American winner as well?  I know, I know there is a long way to go but.....

Saw last night that Brabec won the stage and was in the lead. Other than him running this before, I don't know much about him. If he hangs on, I guess we will.

It's still looking good for Ricky save for the Honda motor that gave up its ghost for teammate Benavides.  I hope Ricky's motor holds up better than his teammates and his bike last year.

only 2 stages left and Brabec is leading by 25 minutes, hopefully he can stay in the lead. closest KTM is 28min. back, this could be the end of the winning streak.

Brabec pulled it off! Congrats for ending KTM's run and becoming the first American to win the Dakar.
