Dakar

It's Dakar time. NBC Sports channel. 30 minute coverage sucks, but....

He has put on weight and gray and is in the side-by-side division. It's like he went golfing and got in an endless sand trap

Oh I know, but there's a shortage of Americans to pull for, and he is "colorful".

He's driving a UTV, whatever that is, but he's apparently in the car class with the Minis and Hilux.

I agree. He’s colorful (delusional).

Oops, yes, he's in the car class for some reason even tho there's a division for side by side. This will end well.

Did you see the interviews with other racers when they asked them about Robby being back? They were all pretty complimentary, but some also had sly grins on their faces like they were holding back a little and not telling how they really felt.

I watched the rest day show and they don’t even mention Gordon any more.

Glad to see Brabec doing so well.

They mentioned him briefly, only to say that he was way back due to "issues" or something. He's out of it. And yes, hope Ricky keeps it up. I remember a few years ago, his first maybe, when he retired due to sheer exhaustion. They basically forced him to. He was delirious. He's improved each year since.

What Fitty said... he broke his rear diff and lost 7 hours. There was a rumor on one site all the Textrons are out. Gordon's name no longer comes up in the GC results on the Dakar site so it would appear he's dropped out.
