With the Dakar cancelled, this YouTube video has been getting some new attention and a bunch of new comments. I’m still crushed from the cancellation and wondering what they’re going to do in the future.
Apparently, Chile & Argentina are angling to have the Dakar held in South America. Isn’t the Dakar all about Africa? Wouldn’t it be just another rally if were held anywhere else? I suspect relocating the Dakar would take away a lot of its allure and I’m betting that when A.S.O announces their plan for 2009 it’ll be focused on increasing security in Africa and planning for alternate routes in case of trouble.
