Article in the Toronto Star - Link
That's pretty awesome. I bet he will have a pretty awesome car. I think I read an article on him a few months back said he was worth 700 million an his father 1.7 billion. Not too shabby.
No too shabby indeed. I bet he pays his retail employees utter shit wages though. Arsehole!
Good to see some Canadians participating in this years Daker.
That is one very tough race.
Would love to be able to do it.
They aren't doing too bad either. Just read they moved up 32 spots on day one. They broke their shifter but managed to fix it with a strap and were close enough to the end of the stage to make it work. They said they have spares.
Yes seriously. Wealth inequality is becoming a serious problem in the world and its only getting worse.
But i digress. This is not the right place for that discussion. Billionaire people disgust me!
Nice Toyota is right!
You have to be able to do it all in this race..drive and fix/repair.
The article states the pair is piloting a Toyota Tacoma but the picture depicts a Toyota Hilux.
Nevermind the Yota, there's a guy levitating in the background!
Time for some bike pics from the race I haven't followed Dakar in years, and actually was surprised it wasn't even raced in Africa any more
Darn news reporters for you can't tell the difference in a Hilux and a Tacoma
I believe there's 10 Hilux's in the race.
Speaking of bikes the 2015 Dakar had it's first casualty. Michale Hernik 39 died during the third stage. RIP
The Dakar made the National news this evening.
Matt Campbell, 63, and crew mate survived the crash and are doing very well, considering.
Man!! Hope I can roll half that good when I'm that age!
What a smack they took.
Glad to hear they are all ok.
My neck hurts just watching the video!
The ADV f5irehose is by far the best place to keep up on the Dakar. Our only Canadians driving the Aldo car is still in on stage 10.
You've probably found this already, but just in case.... I've always found the Dakar pics on Boston.Com to be impressive. Not only are many photos stunning....
....but they also often show the "human condition".
More pics from the Boston Globe of the 2017 Dakar.
