Dakar Rally is nearly here

Only days to go now before I start my journey to South America and I was very happy to receive my race jacket and a have a new sponsor this week.

My Jacket arrived just a few days ago and I'm very proud to be displaying my support for Children's Hospice South West. Please help make the most of short and precious lives by giving a donation via my Virgin Giving page here.

Many thanks to for becoming my latest sponsor in my Dakar challenge. I have spoken with John (a rider himself) at First Response many times and I'm really excited to have them supporting me.

Many thanks to everyones support so far whether in sponsorship, supporting the charity, words of wisdom, or well wishes. Please, please continue to do so as more than ever I will need you're words of encouragement during the rally. I'm a very average rider, certainly not naturally athletic, & not on a purpose built factory machine. I am stubborn though, I will give it my all, and you're messges could just give me that extra push needed to complete this mammoth challenge. You can send messages and follow my progress during the race at There will be a daily photo update from the official Dakar photographer, and I will try and update when possible. You can also follow the Torque Racing Team and the LC4-50 project via Jenny Morgan on ADV Rider.

Would also like to mention that we have many riders with the Desert Rose Racing team in the Africa Eco Race starting on the 30th of December. I wish them all a safe and enjoyable rally. Both rallies will be shown on Eurosport.

Thanks again everyone, Corky
