No Country for Old Men? Don’t Tell “El Matador”!

On paper, the Dakar Rally should be a young man’s game. Arguably the most grueling motorsport event on the planet, the 40th edition of the Dakar featured 14 stages stretching almost 9,000km. Of those 14 stages, half of them were spent in a maze of confusing and unforgiving desert sand dunes. In addition, 5 stages...
