PS...I've just heard from Greg and Mike that they will give the present Twitter link on the forum a much needed boost of joie de vivre as some forumites have mentioned that some users may not even know it was there...low profile and all.
That is SO COOL! I love Dakar. Now we have even more reason to watch! Thanks, Brutus!
Always wanted to do that on a four wheeler. Barring equipment failure, I have never doubted that I could do it.
Of course... I'm at the half-century mark now. (I'd still give it my all)
Never watched it before but if we're sponsoring a team, I'm up for it!

Go, Team!!!!!!!!!
This is great, can't wait til it airs.Cool Isn't it held in January?Huh
That'll be great to watch! Someone else mentioned it elsewhere, but um, yeah t-shirts would a great way to help support this too! Smile
Hmmm... my original post in this thread went *poof* and vanished. No idea why.

Anyway, I first got interested in the Dakar when I saw Charley Boorman's take on it. Poor bugger broke his hands on day 4.

At least now I'll have a team to cheer for!

As for the Twitter link, do you have to have a Twitter account to see updates? And do you have to be invited? I know diddly squat about Twitter.
The first leg of the rally starts New Year's day and finishes in Lima, Peru on the 15th. Here's the official website for The Dakar:

As for Twitter, I believe you do have to set up an account to get and send Tweets. But it's simple (Hey, if I can do it.....) and free.
The Dakar also goes through the Atacama Desert. Along with Antartica it is the dryest place on earth with some places where even cactus won't grow and not even a trace of rain has ever fallen. Here's an interesting article. An amazing place.

I certainly was able to see the tweets up until recently without an account. Now it has all changed and I can no longer can see them. Huh

Oh I now see they have put into a private, protected mode. I wonder why it changed? A secret society perhaps?
