FOLLOW THE DAKAR RALLY TOUR PACKAGES
The 2013 Dakar Rally organizers use the headline “The Great Escape” on their press kit brochure (see above photo). One obvious inference can be drawn. By connecting the Dakar Rally with Steve McQueen’s 1963 film about a famous Allied prisoners of war escape attempt, including the unforgettable scene where McQueen jumps his motorcycle over a barbed wire fence, powerful images of freedom and motorcycle culture are invoked. For many bike enthusiasts, being part of the Dakar competition is a long held dream. If riding the Dakar as a competitor is outside your reach, a second best option might be a Dakar Rally bike tour package. Check out the tour operators below for a few options to start your research. It could be a great way to get a few weeks freedom from the day job.
