Postscript to the Dakar Rally. Not only the Dakar Rally has been thwarted in starting its race. Likewise, Raimundo Querido who decided to do the Dakar rally on foot has also been advised to bypass Mauritania. Raimundo has lived in Paris suburbs and has gained notoriety as a stuntman (his skills were portrayed in the James Bond film Casino Royale).
Visit Adrenaline Team to learn more about Raimundo Querido. And P.S. Good News – the trek continues according to Raimundo’s site – he’s just posted. This may well be the first year that this incredible endurance test Paris/Dakar will be accomplished without the benefit of wheels. With petrol now at $100 a barrel – that’s something to think about.
