Here's a typical private entry contestant (a privateer) in the Paris-Dakar rally. His name is Chris Emerson, and he's English, and will be riding a BMW F650 Dakar.

Chris is not a professional rally rider, nor will he have a 100+ person support team, but he's going to ride the Dakar rally anyway. It's people like Chris that have made the Paris-Dakar a legend, since the race was alwaysbeen meant for amateurs, but has recently turned in to a money making machine for the organizers and pro-teams.

If you want to read up on Chris obstacles and accomplishments in getting this far, click here to go to his web site (called Dakar Diary). You can find Chris also on the UKGSer.com web site (a web site dedicated to the BMW GS series) . You'll see that it's not easy, trying to compete in one of world's most famous and tough races.
