    Dakar Rally, the world's most dangerous motor sports event.

    1st John 1:9
    If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

    John 3:16
    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    John 3:17
    For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

    Great, now I can torture you guys for the next 2 weeks and not just my family. Laia Sanz has some serious money behind her this year, being on the factory KTM team, and I hope that she does great. Of course the Rally Pan Am Team is who I support and we have some great guys on the team this year. Scott Bright and Ian Blythe are the boys I am rooting for. Jonah Street who was a motorcycle rider has moved to navigating for Sheldon Creed in the cars. He is on Robby Gordons team. Sheldon Creed is an 18 year old guy who beat Robby Gordon in Stadium trucks and after the race Robby offered him a job in a second American car in Dakar. The prologue was today and I wish Gordons team had done better and had a better starting spot tomorrow, but the Rally Pan Am guys did great and will get some great experience. I would love one of them to win a stage or 2 but will be happy if they both finish and gain some experience. I say the same thing every year, I wish that I spoke Spanish and I wish that I didn't have this Dakar addiction. I also hope that all of the racers return home safely to their families, but I know that past history says otherwise.

    KTM has been victorious from 2001 - 2015, BMW took the honors in 1999 and 2000 and then Yamaha from 1991 - 1998

    Looks like todays stage is cancelled do to weather, at least the bikes and quads. I know many people complain that stages should run regardless of the weather but I agree with canceling. If a helicopter cannot fly, no med-evac, no media coverage. One of the riders commented that just moving the bike was like riding on soap.
