I have Dish service and went to their program website (Dish TV Guide) and did a search to find the coverage.

Re: 2013 Race to Dakar

I tried Directv's web sight, but didn't find much... Not that it isn't there..just I could'nt find it.

Anyway, I did find this on Adventure rider.



Daily highlights from each stage can be viewed on the NBC Sports Network (DIRECTV Channel 220 / Dish Network Channel 159 / AT&T U-Verse Channel 1640 / Verizon FiOS Channel 590) January 5th the 20th. Please check your local listings for times & schedules on the NBC Sports Network.

Re: 2013 Race to Dakar

I imagine this race is again in South America ... so they're not going to Dakar.

Re: 2013 Race to Dakar

I am a little disappointed that there is little representation from the US. Only two motorcycles, and Robby Gordon seems to be the ONLY US car this year! He has shown some good times in several stages, but seems to always suffer some big problem that hurts his chances.

Re: 2013 Race to Dakar

Robby Gordon seems always starstuck and if not for bad luck would have none at all.

His brother-in-law did OK in 2012, however.

Re: 2013 Race to Dakar

( I imagine this race is again in South America ... so they're not going to Dakar. )

It used to be called the PARIS DAKAR

Now it is simply called the DAKAR and yes it takes place in South America because Africa became politically too dangerous.( Read Terrorism )

Regardless of Robbys antics I will still cheer for him as a North American.
I would say he has bigger balls than most of us.

Re: 2013 Race to Dakar

I'm a Robby Gordon fan for sure.

There was a time when Tony Stewart called him the most talented driver in NASCAR and that's saying something considering the source.

Ryan Hunter-Ray is married to Robby's sister.

Re: 2013 Race to Dakar

If you google dakar you can find the official website and get current updates, some video and lots of other info, including all the rules if you wish t race yourself.

I bet robby will be pissed if he loses to a MINI.

Charlie Boorman started on 2007 but didn't finish due to broken finger(s). It's available on DVD from Amazon

It takes a ton of cash to outfit a bike (or car) as well as have support along the way.

Re: 2013 Race to Dakar

Robby parked his hummer on its roof today, lost two hours and two radiators and the windshield.
