    Hmmm died during the repat flight back to France. I bet that wasn't pleasant for the medics looking after him. I guess at least the poor chap died what he loved doing. RIP.

    I have to say I don't follow the Dakar but it would be great to see it televised (maybe it is but I only have freeview), would defiantly watch it. RIP :expressionless:

    It's been on Eurosport for years although I haven't followed it as much this year as I usually do.

    It's not like the BBC to highlight a motorcycle sport death :confused:. It's the only time they mention bikes. Tossers.
    RIP.

    One of the motorcycle legend of the Dakar passed away last week. Hubert Auriol won 2 times on BMW and had this crash on Cagiva in 1987. He crossed the step line riding with 2 broken ankles.
    He also won with a car later.
    They all know the danger. Pierre Cherpin was on his 4th Dakar. Always sad, but lethal accident on such a crazy race can't be avoided.
