Fifteen years ago I was at the starting line of my first Dakar rally. The toughest rally in the world. And the greatest adventure for (wo)man and machine. This was the classic one, starting in France north of Paris, and finishing by the Lac Rose in Dakar, the capital of Senegal.
I knew it was going to be hard. But could never imagine all the hardship I encountered.
