Dakar 2017

The 38th Dakar Rally is in full throttle since the 2 January. The Organizers promised the hardest and most challenging rally since the race is on and so far they kept this promise.

Today is a resting day and stage six was cancelled due to bad weather but the motorcycles are facing a mind-boggling (at least for me) 622 km stage to race through on.

I truly admire the skills and stamina of the riders, to not just get through the stages, but to race against each other and the clock.
