    Yamaha Cyril Despres Dakar 2014

    Anyone else follow the Dakar? I've been watching for years waiting for someone to dethrone KTM.

    I recall a few years ago when David Fretigne ran the new Yamaha 2wd 450 and finished well.

    Now Cyril Despres is riding for Yamaha.. Can he or David bring Blue to the winners circle in 2014???

    I *LOVE* Dakar!! I'd like to take a "Dakar groupie" vacation, but I probably see more right on my computer screen.

    Been watching the Dakar for....well I don't know how many years. US TV coverage is pretty minimalist at best, at least there are several outlets on the internet. Last year my daughters nanny watched part of the Dakar when she went home to Peru to visit her family (wish I had gone )

    I've never followed the Dakar before, but find your post's of the race interesting. See trucks racing was also interesting. Thanks for posting these updates. I'll keep viewing the video's as you post them.
