Annie Seel

Another great blog to read is that of Annie Seel, a competitor in this year's Dakar Rally. I've been reading it for a while and Annie is a fantastic competitor favouring hard out enduros but also taking part in road racing (last year riding an electric bike in a few events).

In last year's Dakar she was unlucky enough to ride into a tomb, having to be lifted out by helicopter! This year she has been riding well but is currently suffering from food poisoning which is naturally robbing her of a lot of strength - but she is very tough and is still racing hard. I'm sure that once she fights off the bug she'll hit her stride again and prove what a fantastic rider she is.

My hat is truly off to all bike riders in this event and I wish them all well and hope that none suffer any serious misfortunes!
