<div class='quotetop'>QUOTE (memento @ Jan 12 2007, 06:29 PM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}><div class='quotemain'>Can someone, please, tell me what charlie Boorman did last year (and what is "Road to Dakar"?)? I saw in Long way round book that he was prepparing for dakar 2006, and I thought that I didn't notice him there (athough I didn't even know who he is then)

Sorry my mistake, Race to Dakar apparently, he didn't finish, but his mentor Pavey did. Apparently, because I am a hypocrite, I looked him up to find out what films he has been in of any consequence. He was in Deliverance 1972, because his dad directed it!!!!! No change there then, still milking the celebrity connection to this day lol. Shame though, being that Deliverance is one of my all time fave films, I now have to burn it, and I don't mean copy it. lol

Doesnt matter who it was, it'd another life lost.

Hi Pete, So true man. But it was in 03 I recall, that TT did lose one of the top guys.

I must admitt, I love to watch the Isle of Mayhem, but really, its not worth precious life. Sucks, but I'll keep watching. Like an addict.

Dead right, there is something addictive in watching guys with that compulsion to push like these guys do.

Same for the Isle of Man then. You can't ban the DAKAR and not the Isle of Man, but with the DAKAR they're all raising money so it's a good event in that respect.

Every single participant in the Dakar knows the dangers of that race, they are willing to take them, which is why they are one of the bravest sportsmen (and women) on Earth.
Making it as safe as possible without killing the soul of the race -> YES
Banning the race -> NO WAY

So only one thing left to say ....

I must say,
I've never seen competitors help each other so much
in any other sports event.
