Tough race – good equipment

annie-equipment-dakar2014_520x670General feelings and thoughts about the importance of personal equipment:

I’m very content with my Simpson neck protection, just great! Stabilizing when reading the roadbook, I get no neck ache. I put it on before race start and won’t take it off until finished the stage, regardless what I must do in between.
Garry has as an ordinary type of neck guard; no good, he says – it fits badly, difficult to to take on and off when working with the car.

I have two Sabelt overalls from LM Motorsport. After the feshy stage that smeared everything it was nice to have a clean overall, while the service team washes the dirty.
     * The photo: last day sunbathing, then I’m two weeks fully covered by the overall during rally. 


The Bell helmet from G Partners is awsome, keeps all dust out.
And everybody thinks it 
looks really good! So true… 😉

I’m very greatful to all my sponsors.

Unpacked my brand new Bell Helmet, straight from the factory with my new but “old” yellow and black design!

The stuffed toy is a copy of my little dog!

I met the doctor for VW-team and he told my nose is broken. Pretty? And yet the helmet took the hardest hits…

Well, that’s Dakar… pain and pleasure, hate and love – I take it all. And so I told the reporter too who interviewed me. It was shown on Eurosport.
