|9 May, 2012 - Cyril Despres Writes A Book and Why You Should Buy It|
|Any Dakar fan will know the name. You can't escape it if you watch the famous car & motorcycle rally. Cyril Despres, 4 time winner of the Dakar, and 9 times on the finish podium, needs no introduction. |
Cyril is a mild manner gentleman, and an "alien" (to coin a MotoGP phrase) motorcycle racer. The Frenchman has published a book, entitled "4X Dakar", about his Dakar experience. As Cyril has said himself "Normally a rider waits until the end of his career before publishing a retrospective. Except that I have never been a fan of convention!".
The reason this factory KTM rider is publishing a book is to raise money for a school in Africa that he started after the untimely death of his friend Fabrizio Meoni in the 2005 Dakar rally in Africa. The school is located in the suburbs of Dakar, Senegal, and has 13 teachers and 321 children. But the area has 500 children who can not go to a school, so Cyril wants to expand the school and for that he needs money.

|For those of you who like to read a great motorcycle adventure book, here's one that truly is great! Written by Carla King, a fellow MBI blogger and a travel journalist, Carla knows how to put a sentence together.|
Carla's book entitled "American Borders" is the true story of her long ride to all corners of the USA on a Russian built Ural motorcycle. It was not just any old Ural, but the first one post-communist era, meant for export.
