As we count down to the 40th Dakar Rally, coming in January 2018 to NBCSN, here’s another quick video showcasing the challenge of the event itself.
Cyril Despres is one of the top bike riders at the Dakar Rally. In 2010, however, things went awry during one stage when this happened.
Despres won several stages in the 2010 Dakar Rally en route to the bike class win, even despite his bike digging into the course and getting him and the bike stuck. But help soon appeared on the way.
