Dakar Rally [with potential spoilers]
 
Dakar Rally coverage, starts on Monday January 4th at 5:30pm EST on NBCSN [NBC Sports Network] with 1/2-hour of coverage each day (with commercials, it's more like 20min). That's pretty much the norm for those of us in the US.

http://www.dakar.com/dakar/2016/img/...s-carte-v3.jpg

In past years, I've tried to find better ways of watching, without the delay and with better coverage, but I've not had much luck. The vast majority of broadcasting from other countries is blocked coming into the US. There are services that mask your IP and/or allow you to access content via VPNs in other countries, but that typically comes at a cost and can still be a bit difficult to pull off. For those of you who are content being only NASCAR and Bengals fans, I suppose it's not that big of a deal, but... if you're like me and want to see some of the most popular motorsports outside of the US, then it can be a bit of a challenge.

Anyone have a better way of watching Dakar or is the daily 1/2-hour ration on NBCSN pretty much it?

Prologue: Buenos Aires -> Rosario
Distance: 11km
Today, at 11AM, the competitors will go through the Podium at Tecnópolis and then leave for the Prologue. The results of this short pre-stage will define the start order for Stage 1. Competitors will also have a chance to make last minute adjustments on their vehicles while on the Light Bivouac in Rosario.

The entire field will reach Villa Carlos Paz under link section conditions. Motorcycles and quads will travel in a convoy, cars on their own and trucks on the course reserved for assistance vehicles.

After Stage-4, I think he's in 33rd position (I think). His car #2, driven by 18yr/old Sheldon Creed is 24 minutes ahead of him in position #25 (I think).

Time given back to her. I think she placed 15th in the stage.

So...I take it there's no concussion protocol for running the Dakar? Makes NFL players seem like sissies... :D

Well there is a slight difference in recruiting methodology. One draws recruits from college and the other from the insane asylum. ;-)
