I’ve had to tune in to Rally RAIDio for the last couple of days to get the latest news and reactions to the Dakar being cancelled.

What’s amazed me is the total lack of interest from main stream media. The BBC ran a story, and even as it was breaking ‘Terrorists stop Dakar’ it wasn’t even on the front page of BBC Sport. It did appear briefly on the front page of BBC News as a NIB (News In Brief).

Baaaaaaa! I’m begining to sound like a minority sport fan…. but bloody hell come on this story is huge!!!!

Perhaps it really is just me. Do tune in to Rally RAIDio though – excellent source of audio interviews with the real people from the Dakar – the privateers
