Default Re: Shows the intensity of DAKAR

Quote:
Ever wondered why an American motorcycle racer has never won Dakar? Do you want answers? Well, youíve come to the right placeóthat is, if you have a few minutes to spare. For a country that invented desert racing and developed more desert racing superstars over the years than any other country on the planet, it takes a little time to explain why an American has never stood on the top step of the podium at Dakar. Itís a little embarrassing as European riders who barely have an ounce of desert anywhere to be found in their backyards dominate the sport, and yet, we have desert practically everywhere we look here in the western U.S. and still canít buy a win. Weíve developed riders like Danny Hamel, Larry Roeseler, Ty Davis, Johnnie Campbell, Destry Abbott, Kurt Caselli and a dozen other desert heroes all who literally were born with sand and cactus in their blood. With so much raw talent we should have won Dakar by now, youíd think? And especially now in the aftermath of Ricky Brabecís history-making run at the 2019 Dakar the question is more relevant than ever. The answer though isnít as simple as it first appears. Maybe the best place to start is with a quick history lesson so letís start at the beginning.

Incredible never-before-seen behind the scenes footage from the filming of the 1963 film The Great Escape starring Steve McQueen has been unearthed - after more than 50 years hidden away in a drawer.

What a story about the making of this movie with pictures and the clips.

The footage, shot in 1962 during filming near Fussen, Germany, and owned by stuntman Tim Gibbes, now 85, shows the famous motorcycle escape by Hilts (Steve McQueen) from a German prisoner of war camp.

I do like Irish Road Racing. Experiencing the TT in person was a true bucket-list experience.

Thanks for the heads-up.
