Thanks again for all the links Mike! It was a pretty exciting Dakar, rather hard on the competitors & vehicles though. Good job to Ricky for winning, too bad for Mitch/Kellon. They were so close to winning.
It will be interesting to see if Sainz competes next year since he just won another Dakar.
I will be curious to see what vehicle Nasser will be driving next year!
Good on Ricky and I believe Johnny is still advising him.
I'm also sad for Mitch and Kellon, but also Sara. If not for a bad stage or two, we might have had 3 class winners from the US. Overall, a good showing by the American's, IMO
On to 2025, Max will be 16 and old enough to Co-dawg at DAKAR if RG chooses to go. Max's birthday is one day before Eryk Goczal's (different year of course)So Max can never be the youngest 'winner'in the T4 (SSV class)
Nasser was in the first year of a 3 year contract, this will be interesting.
