Newsletter 202: Dakar Champions

Dakar Champions

Dakar Champions
Arriving first at the finish line means to win a race, but just being at the start line means that you are already a champion, even more when we are talking about the Dakar: the world's hardest off-road race. This picture by Franck Fife of Carlos Sainz after breaking his Peugeot says it all.

Our compliments to all Dakar champions, your struggle makes us fall in love, and our most sincere congratulations from SpotModel to Stphane Peterhansel for his victory! :D
