Any Dakar Open link in a new window fan will know the name. You can't escape it if you watch the famous car & motorcycle rally. Cyril Despres Open link in a new window, 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 Open 4X Dakar link in a new window", 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!".

4x Dakar Book
The reason this factory KTM Open link in a new window 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.

The 4X Dakar book has 100's of photos, all commented by Despres. The book is in both French and English. The book can be ordered on-line for €30. All profits of the book will go to the school.

So click here to order the 4X Dakar book Open Cyrildespres-Shop link in a new window. Not only is it informative, but it's for a great cause.

You can go to the book site above and see an excerpt of the book.

Cyril Despres logo
Again, Cyril Despres shows that he's human, not a money & glory hound. He had an appointment at the Lac Rose (final stage for the Dakar rally) to fulfill his obligations to the Fabrizio Meoni Foundation and to inaugurate a 2nd school.

And that's exactly what he did. not on his KTM motorcycle, but he went there nevertheless.
