I usually post about the Dakar at the beginning of January but with everything that's been going on I've only kept a weather eye on it - enough to see that Marc Coma has done it again on his KTM. No Pavey this year, who I always enjoy following, but perhaps he might be back next time. In lieu of all that I've been watching another biker, TT racer, daredevil and mechanic Guy Martin, in his programme Speed, and via YouTube catching up with his series The Boat that Guy built. I love that he's so very very down to earth, has great respect for British engineering and manufacturing (think Fred Dibnah on a motorbike) and cites tea as his favourite drink. Let's also not overlook the obvious, the man is very easy on the eye if you like that kind of thing, which I do. Am I right chief?
