Once again this year, the NBC Sports Network will be broadcasting the daily highlights from the Dakar Rally. Unfortunately there will be a significant delay in this broadcast. The first show will be on the NBC Sports Network at 4:30 PM on Monday, January 5. This half-hour TV program will show the highlights from the day before, Sunday January 4. At least this is scheduled time here on the east coast of the USA on the Comcast cable network that serves my area.
Perhaps those of you who have satellite TV will be able to find a more current or longer Dakar Rally TV show. It is also possible that there might be some available live-feed. If anyone can find these shows or information sources, then please let me know and I’ll pass it on to others via this website. My email address is: shanna12 at comcast dot net
It’s Hard Enough Just Riding The Motorcycle In The Dakar, Never Mind Doing The Navigation and Timing As Well!
While I have fond memories of Toby Moody doing the Dakar TV shows, NBC’s Leigh Diffey has done a good job in the last two years and I expect that he will be asked again to host the NBCSN Dakar TV show.
As much as my schedule permits, I will be posting daily Dakar reports on the Car and Bike Classes on this website, based on information that I am able to obtain. Frankly, the Quad and big Truck Classes don’t much interest me.
One thing that I notice on Robby Gordon’s driving suit is the lack of major sponsor badges. This is not a good sign, as racing in the Dakar Rally is not cheap.
