2016 Dakar Rally

Stage 1 was cancelled due to a lack of available safety helicopters

Stage 2 was won by Aussie, Toby Price on his factory KTM, great result, I'm sure my old kindergarten/primary school class mate Andy Caldecott would be looking down very proudly at him right now

That would be the one Smile


I guess safety of everyone including competitors, crews, media, support etc etc had to take priority, it was either move or shut it down completely, the world we live in can  be a pretty fucked up place at times  Evil or Very Mad

A simply fantastic result for Toby Price.  I hope that the mainstream Australian media gives this achievement the exposure it most surely deserves. But......I am not holding my breath!!
