So who's your prediction for this year? Seems like Rob Mac has won it a lot lately. But I think it may be the year for Bryce Menzies to take it home. That guy is one fast MoFo.

Do you happen to know when coverage will be broadcast and on what network?

I think Tavo and Andy will be a good team and they have a really nice starting position, Bebo is always a solid bet in any race. I'm always a fan of Menzies but he's injured AGAIN. It would be really amazing if Rob Mac could pull off 4 B1Ks in a row in addition to winning the mint 400 this year. I have my doubts if RG can keep it together.

It also depends on who they're teaming up with, if at all. I know Bebo and Tavo. Menzies might be trying to do it by himself. I know he wanted to last year but after his injury he teamed up with Jesse again. Not sure what Rob Mac's plans are.

My top 3 picks are probably Bebo/Tavo, Rob Mac, and Menzies.

Official starting order. Looks like there were some changes.

Live coverage is usually limited to facebook/instagram live and online tracking. There will be a documentary on CBS and/or NBC a few months after.

Huh. It's interesting to me that we have been able to watch daily coverage of the Dakar for years, but can't for the Baja.

Ya, it sucks! MavTv has been doing Best in the Desert, but even thats getting few and farther between. Just saw the coverage of Vegasto Reno Guess us Desert Dogs dont make up enough market share for the Big networks.

Ruger,
I lived in Europe for two years back in the late 80's and DAKAR is absolutely everywhere. For the 4-5 months before January there are daily updates. Indeed in Belgium, Jan de Rooy is a national hero.
TV coverage of Dakar is basically a freebie for the US as all of the coverage is done by all of the European countries/networks.
In the US they just pay for 30 min updates that are produced for England/Australia/New Zealand...

Rob Mac is teaming up with Voss. Another formidable team starting up front.
