I’ll be paying close attention to the Dakar, as I always do. Helder Rodrigues has a chance of winning on the moto category but Cyril Després and Marc Coma are always the favourites. On the Autos, Stéphane Peterhansel will almost surely win, but you never know on Dakar.
Basically, I follow Dakar to keep track of the portuguese adventurers.
I guess the name now reflects on the kind of race rather than where it finishes or where it takes place. Other than that, I don’t think there’s a particular good reason to keep it… but I guess it’s “tradition”. It’s not a big deal anyway…
I don’t follow it even though it takes place in my country… It’s a bit boring IMO.
@thezadak: “Inca Rally” would be apropiate only if they end up in Peru… but they are thinking about streaching the journey all the way to Brazil
