Last Of the Dakar Write-ups

OK, I promise, no more Dakar stories until the 2006 Dakar race !!! So, here are the last two reports written up by the two Rauseo brothers, Charlie and Dave. Both ride KTM Motorcycles.

They have written up their side of the Dakar adventure story. Riding motorcycles in any race is never easy, but riding your motorcycle in the toughest race in the world merits your attention, specially when both brothers know how to spin a good yarn.

Charlie Rauseoi
Charlie Rauseo, riding with dorsal number 116, finished in the very respectable 86th position.

It was his 2nd time riding the Dakar dragon, and reading his story, I don't think its his last one either.

His story can be read by clicking here.

Dave Rauseoi
Charlie's brother, Dave Rauseo, with dorsal number 117, finished in 81st position, and he did it by riding his motorcycle with a broken ankle for the last 6 days !

It was not only Dave's first Dakar, but first race.

As I've been getting many emails from riders who want to try their luck (skill?) in the next Dakar race, I strongly urge you to read these reports. What you see on TV or on the web/magazine coverage is not at all what you will be enduring. Only riders who have braved the elements and obstacles can tell you. Read these reports, think about it, and then decide if you really want to race in the Dakar.

End of the Dakar reports for this year.
