As a guy who worked on big trucks all my life, I am in awe of how hard they drive them. When you see the in Truck cameras, they do take a real pounding inside the cabs. In 2004, I had a pool going with my inlaws and I picked Vladimer Chagin for the truck class to win - He did! I picked Peterhansel in the cars and Nani Roma on bikes and got a clean sweep in the family pool that year. they got their money back in a Nascar pool, but I wasnt that interested. After all, it was just roundy round cars. I've been a Dakar fan for a long time now!
