Camelia Liparoti - Dakar 2016. Italian-born Camelia Liparoti took an untraditional path to the Dakar Rally..The former Photo reporter specialized in skiing before discovering the Dakar on photo assignment in 2005.  
During a trip to Africa, she gained the opportunity to ride a quad and found her calling, finding many parallels to skiing in glide, speed, pitch and feedback.
The now resident of France first entered the Dakar in 2009, and was unable to finish.  She hasn’t missed the event since, proving her worth with Top 15 finishes 2010-2015, with her best finish at 9th in 2012, and the first female moto-quad finisher in 2013.   
A six-time world rally champion offroad racer, she proves that she is a serious contender.

That does not look like - as circulated in social media - Gordon pulled out of race and did not finish cause he assisted team involved in accident. That's half of it. By the video he CAUSED the accident.....

What a poor judgment call related incident with people getting hurt as ending of an more as poor performance during #Dakar2016 #TeamSpeed #RobbyGordin #PuraImprudencia

Dakar 2016 - Stage 12 - San Juan to Villa Carlos Paz. Trucks have a different course and distance as the other classes.
Liaison:
Bikes, Quads, Cars: 450 km / 279.6 miles
Trucks: 599 km / 372.2 miles
Special Stage
Bikes, Quads, Cars: 481 km / 298.9 miles
Trucks: 267 km / 165.9 miles
The penultimate stage of the 2016 Dakar will take the field from San Juan to Villa Carlos Paz, the Argentinean city that also was the destination of stage one.
After the sandy terrain of the previous stages the Dakar now returns to the mountains and narrow roads offering nearly no opportunity to overtake. The competitors will have to cover a total of 931 kilometers, with the special stage mileage adding up to 481 kilometers.

Dakar 2016 - Stage 10 - Belen - La Rioja.
Liaison
Bikes: 283 km / 175.8 miles
Quads: 283 km / 175.8 miles
Cars: 485 km / 301.4 miles

In stage 10, the competitors will have to race from Belén to La Rioja. And again, the mainly challenge of the stage will be dunes – the Dakar’s special highlight.
The stage will feature an innovation: the start.
The first 10 bikes, 10 cars and 5 trucks will start in the order of the times they set the day before.
The total distance covered will add up to 763 kilometers, 278 of them in the special stage!

X-raid team boss Sven Quandt has admitted he was baffled by Dakar officials. "We didn't stop with the altitude, but we stop with the the heat. It's funny."
Quandt was also critical of the first week of competition, which he reckons was designed to help Peugeot.
"This looks more to help others to win after we've won for four years."

Paulo Gonçalves still firmly in contention after today’s very difficult stage. #Gonçalves crashing hard with lucky outcome and only minor damage to bike.

#Dakar2016 was, once again, ruthless and sometimes unfair, but it is from these tests and experiments that Sherco TVS grows and becomes stronger together.
It only proves that we are continuing to advance and that we are a true player in this exceptional adventure.

Dakar 2016 - Stage 13 - Villa Carlos Paz to Rosario. The final stage, featuring a 180-kilometer special stage, will take the field back to Rosario where the competitors will cross the finish podium in the afternoon. But these 180 kilometers once again will be quite a challenge: tight, winding, rocky, sandy… This special stage has got it all. And so, anything can happen.

Leading Toyota driver Giniel de Villiers has questioned the Dakar Rally officials' decision.  "I'm disappointed because I do not know what happened and why they stopped the stage,"
Asked whether the conditions were worse than those he used to encounter when Dakar was held in Africa, de Villiers said: "The temperatures then were no different.
"Drivers must be prepared for this - of course, if you don't, then it's unsafe."

Laia Sanz been far up in my "respect ratings" for her performances. She just made it further up!!
Who better as an racer can make this statement??
"Finally we’ve seen a true Dakar stage. This is how the Dakar should be, I don’t understand why they’ve cut the SS9. Dakar has always been hard, we don’t have to lower the bar now to make sure that all the bikes make the arrival on time."
May the race-gods keep a guiding hand over you!
