The 2023 Dakar has finished.
The Dakar is over and this synopsis of the bike (& quad) portion is the best I have seen. If you missed it, this will catch you up. Links to ADVmoto Dual Sport News for the halfway and final reports follows. Congratulations to the winners!
Paris - Dakar first years First Years 1979 - 1997
Sometimes I dream of riding the (old version) of the Dakar, from Paris, France to Dakar, Senegal. On a big BMW motorbike! But if the physical demands and navigation seem impossible, keeping the motorcycle running for that distance through unknown terrain is unimaginable to me.
