    Default Sonora Rally/Dakar Challenge!

    Check out the latest Sonora Rally press release! The Sonora rally has formed a relationship with the Dakar Rally! It's limited to the motorcycle class this year. Next year they are considering the cars too. Winner gets free entry into the Dakar with full bivouac support.

    This is huge! Rally Raid finally has a viable foothold in North America!

    (Forgive me for all of the exclamation points but this is incredible news. (!!!!!!) Kudos to the Sonora rally organizers (Scott Whitney and Darren Skilton). They made it happen.

    Looks like I get to volunteer for another fun event...
    Just confirmed with the folks in charge and double checked at work.
    Fun way to shake down before helping chase for the NORRA Mexican 1000 later in April.
    If you see this rig look for a guy with a fake leg and be sure to say hi...
    cigar smoking, wilderness first responding, ham talking night nurse who is overland certified and a fellow of the Royal Geographical Society.....
    now everyone say "so what where have you been lately?"
