I don't know what particular stage this was during the recent Dakar Rally, but I bet it wasn't a popular one for some of these riders.

1:56 looked painful! Anybody who even attempts the Dakar gets massive respect from me!

I'm riding the Dakar [so, respect anyway], I'm coming up to a section that has loads of spectators, with video cameras .... I wonder WHY they chose HERE to stand & watch ...... ??!!??

I love the fellah in his y-fronts who gets more helpful with every crash. Looks like he just got out of bed to help with the race
