Customer Review

on 13 November 2006
I ordered this as soon as it became available on the strength of the fantastic Long Way Round and to learn more about the mysterious Dakar race.

It follows a similar format to LWR with pre-training, on board cameras, daily diaries and some familiar support team faces. The new chaps supporting Charley provide a fresh perspective and some existing Dakar experience.

What's good is the insight into the prep needed; the landscapes they tear through; the relationships between all the players - trucks, cars and bikes (beware the feared 'beep' 'beep') and the general hardship endured. There are a few surprises / nasties along the way adding to the gritty drama.

As Charleys' story unfolds you get to see perhaps another side of the man and the viewer will need to decide themselves whether this adds or not to the experience...

Definately worth a view in you are into your bikes or adventure but similarly definately not LWR.
