Giovanni Sala to Dakar 1998

Very pleased Giovanni Sala, debuting at the Dakar 1998 and the first real experience with road book and GPS.

"After the first week – tells the enduro champion – I thought I had learned all the tricks of navigation; then I got lost a few times and I knew… not understanding anything. But how do they read the notes?».

John still consider the positive experience and the Dakar an interesting race. Here are the differences with the enduro.

«The most incredHow is that I work out every day, I go into motion at least twice a week, then came here and I'll get a big payday from the belly and the cigarette in his mouth! Enduro you always drive to 100% While here you have to strike the right balance between speed and navigation.

Surely it is an experience to be repeated, Although it is the most dangerous discipline I ever made. As soon as you get distracted, and it's normal when you're maybe ten hours in the saddle, cadi. There are of trails in the midst of the stones where vacations 130 km/h and if you're not used to the speed, If you don't have good reflexes, you end up getting hurt».
