    Dakar 2019

    No thread yet so here it is.

    Difficult to predict a win with this years line up in the bikes, all the big guns are there and no injuries that I know of.

    Only 1 ZAFer on a bike, Stuart Gregory who I've never heard of? Hope Ross Branch does well as in top 20, he deserves it.

    What is more interesting is Kirsten Landman in 2020, probably good for a finish, she's tough... Even more interesting is now Taye Perry has jumped on the Dakar wagon and is planning it for the same year. Not sure of her credentials in off-road racing but I do know she's small. I wonder if she's ridden a Rallye bike in sand?

    Anyway, good luck to all.

    #TayeToDakar2020

    SOUTH AFRICA'S TOP FEMALE OFFROAD RACER IS PREPARING FOR THE ULTIMATE CHALLENGE, THE DAKAR.

    Taye Perry at 27 yrs old, with numerous offroad titles to her name, hours and hours of desert racing experience, and a taste for roadbook navigation, Taye is ready to take on the race she's dreamed of since the very beginning, the Dakar.

    Taye won't just fight to finish Dakar... she aims to be a serious competitor as well.

    She lives for long distance, rally type and desert racing, and sees herself becoming a repeat entry.

    ...but she can't do it alone, so if you want to help go to www.tayeperry.com and get behind her so we can see her kick some serious butt out there 😬💪✊✊✊✊✊

    Is Kenny Gilbert not racing 2019?

    And what about Sandy for 2020?

    If Gilbert is he isn't entered as South African, forgot about him, should also be good for a top 20 if he can keep it together.

    My money is on Taye to beat Kirsten at Dakar. She has specialized in the offroad/desert type races and can peddle a 450 pretty quickly. Check the helmet cam footage on her website.

    Taye will beat most men in SA, she's way quicker than Kirsten off road and as tough as nails!
