15 January, 2009 - Respect: Isidre Esteve Pujol
Esteve Pujol
Anyone racing in the Dakar merits respect. But some merit more than others.

Esteve Pulol, a Spanish KTM motorcycle rider, was one of world's top racers, when a crash in 2007 resulted in him losing the use of his legs.

But that has not stopped him from racing in the Dakar, but now he's using 4 wheels instead of 2. Respect!

Time to take stock!

After a comment and several emails regarding the Dakar reporting on this site, we've decided to slightly change the format. We need to do this because of the people who follow this site using a RSS Reader and live in a country where the Dakar TV reporting is usually the following day. We'll no longer put spoiler information in the headline, nor in the RSS summary. That way the RSS readers will be able to continue scanning the motorcycle news, but not know what went on.
