Start of DAKAR 2020 - stage 1
stage 1: Jeddah to Al Wajh
Don't expect to sleep in when following the Dakar 2020.
The benefit - you gotta witness stunning sunrises at the Dakar start.
Ain't awake? Well, the sound of the engines and taking off TV helicopters takes care of that!
We are supporting Team #152, and of course the other bikers of team Bas Dakar.
And the ones of our former countries: Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Peru and all the Dutchies at the rally.
