Yeah, that place out 'there'. Anything not really Cambodia related should go here.

Dakar 2020 in Saudi

Post by phuketrichard »

starts Jan 5th, looks exciting.

It’s not great that the most important off-road race in the world has chased The Kingdom’s massive dangling money carrot, as it is helping to normalize everything that it has done. War crimes, clandestine support of terrorism, degradation of rights, torture, capital punishment, etc. Then again, I live in the United States. And was South America any better? Everything everywhere sucks. Who am I to throw stones?

I lived in Argentina for half the year for 5 years and I can assure you South America is a lot better than Saudi Arabia.
Though, I had no interest in this event; I did see the coverage and actually watched the various riders and machines compete.
Argentina was one of the most incredible places I have ever been and Uruguay was equally wonderful.
I could get 90 day visas..take a ferry to Uruguay from. Buenos Aires and then come back and get another 90 days.
I broke up with my lady down there and lost my best friend...Her father.
They had some great terrain for the course.

I guess the victor has to forego the Champagne celebration and use Halal camel milk instead?
