Thanks Mike. That time change just makes it so hard to watch/follow. But we'll give it a good try!
There are quite a few Americans racing this year.
Ricky Brabec going for his second Dakar win, Andrew Short, and Skyler Howes on bikes.
Wayne Matlock and his wife Kristen are racing factory backed Polaris XP Pros Craig Scanlon is also a driver. I'm sure there are others
Ricky, Andrew, and Skyler all start the first stage in the top 10.
Austin Jones returns in the SXS class, No Casey Currie.
Guthrie and Quintero return in the Light Prototype class.
Amy Lernier in the new Classic class
We had 2 USA winners last year with Ricky Brabec and Casey Currie. I wish all the competitors a safe race.
Hey Gang,Does everyone have their fingers and toes crossed?
If that is for a surprise RG DAKAR attendance? I'm betting there is 0.000000000 chance RG is going. The SPEED UTV/ SXS project is all hands on deck state side.
Are there any stickers to be had this year?
not that I'm aware of
NBCSpoorts will have daily highlights. Tom at http://tvracer.com/ will have schedules up when NBC posts them
