Dakar 2013: Spectator videos

The wonders of the digital age mean anyone, anywhere can be a trackside Dakar spectator of sorts. Here are some lo-fi videos from ground zero.

#1 – For those watching the SBS broadcast, these two characters will seem familiar. They were the two helmetless locals astride a dirtbike chasing Nasser Al-Attiyah’s buggy, the passenger with video camera in hand.

#2 – No need to speak french to appreciate this one. For all the obstacles encountered at Dakar, this simple water crossing proved too much for some.

#3 – Some raw footage of the riders finishing one of the sand dune stages.
