All The (Monte) Feels

This is the week. It’s almost time. The teams have arrived in Gap, the service park is built, and recce has begun. We are just a day away from the start of the 2019 WRC season with Rallye Monte Carlo. To help us all get ready, I decided to put together a little video playlist...

2019 Storylines: Can Ogier Rescue Citroen?

A few months back, I wrote a piece making the case that Sebastien Ogier, moving to Citroen would be a win-win. If he is successful, then he further cements his place in the “greatest of all time” conversation. On the flip side, Ogier’s presence within Citroen places the pressure squarely on the team.

If you thought yesterday’s story about Malle Moto rider, Lyndon Poskitt recovering from cardiac arrest to ride to and then compete in the 2018 Dakar Rally was incredible, wait until you see this one. Nicola Dutto was a promising rally motorbike rider who suffered a terrible crash in 2010 that broke almost every bone in...

7 Days of Dakar: Day 4

Yesterday, we took a look at the navigational aspects of the Dakar Rally. After watching that clip, I began to develop an interest in the bike category of the rally. It boggled my mind how the riders could keep one eye on the roadbook and CAP (compass) heading, and another on the obstacles and hazards...

Blame The Manager?

In a variety of sports, when things aren’t going a team’s way, it’s not uncommon to see the manager or coach get canned regardless of whether it is deserved or not. Over the past few years in rallying, we’ve seen some managers step aside, (think Jost Capito and Yves Matton) but I’m struggling to recall...
