Designed specifically for the rigors of the Dakar, the new Klim Adventure Jacket

 

 

 

Flew over to Paris, France for the Dakar training school, money well spent. In Denver, we are in a Dakar info bubble it’s difficult to know what’s going on with just the updates from Paris. Good to talk with the other European riders, hearing that they too are stressed getting the bikes ready, raising the funds and getting themselves into the shape of their lives.

 

The Day focused on a typical Dakar day, what to expect, how to train and prepare. Pretty much everything a Dakar rookie needs! With temperatures topping out in the 130s, how to take care of your body with Hyperthermia (as opposed to hypothermia – cold).

 

Right now, the pressure is to get the bike built and crated and shipped to the Dakar boat in Le Havre

Using the Rally GPS, this is for the organizers to ensure you hit the Waypoints not for your navigation.  If you unlock it to find your way back to the bivouac, disqualification. ImageImageImage

We have our Facebook  Dakar page up and running

Have our website up live now to follow all the background of Kevin getting to the Dakar 2013 

CRF 450 X Dakar Bike

Not had the bike 2 days, not a scratch on it and it’s already in pieces in Chris’s workshop

Nice to know it’s in good hands though

Dakar Fairing

Ned holding up the fairing for Chris at RMK. Some modifications need to extend the side fairing from the KTM so it can strap to the Acerbis tank on the Honda

Dakar Truck Driver

Aha, that’ll be Toby, hero of Dakar 2012. Toby is over from UK, and we are hoping he’s going to be driving the truck our support crew Dave Peckham is in for the Rally

Not the best start of the month, busted ankle, busted wrist, torn groin, lacerated liver and spleen! Week of bed rest, then will start work with Tom at Vitruvian

Pretty intense receiving the Dakar acceptance letter from Paris in the post today.  Tones of training, and preparations ahead of the race start in Lima.  Now have to work out the budget and see if its even doable.

Thoughts to the boys and girls that didn’t get the letter they hoped for.
