Some Dakar pre-event Photos

Hey friends, i’d like to spend a lot of time describing you all that has happened in these days in which i arrived to Buenos Aires and came down to Mar del Plata. A lot is going on, i am having many logistic problems because i am with very little money and there are some other few problems since i am without a mechanic. Today i put my bike in the Parc Fermè but i still have lots to do on it because i didn’t even test it! Now i will race to bed because its 1 am in Argentina. Here some photos i hope you will enjoy. PS. today the Dakar television crew followed me during all scrutineering and spoke about my crazy story also with a nice interview….23 years to Dakar with no money, no job, no house!

    Potrei in english ma ti rispondo in italiano, daje gas e in culo alla balena, conosco quei luoghi dal fondo dell’argentina fino al venenzuale, viaggiato sempre in moto e senza gps, farai delle piste che conosco, l’africa è l’africa ma il sud america non è da meno dall’ atacama al canyon del Colca in perù daje dentro sono piste.
