Dakar - Le film

A kind of mini Dakar! But the old-fashioned way, without assistance, all to the rescue and resourcefulness. Or Nice/Abidjan, the ancestor of the Dakar. Of course, I am too young to have known this beautiful time, but it is like Jesus, I have heard about it. All you have to do is find out, read the sacred texts! This Transalp story brought back memories in me. Last January 1st, at 7am, on the edge of the national road 20 near Orléans (camera in hand, pictures I still have) to see the caravan of bikers passing through in the cold running south. It seems that some of them were sneaking into vans to avoid this ordeal. The Dakar, the real Dakar, the one of the guys, shaped my childhood dreams but in the lobe of the impossible. You know what? I'll tell you what. I can even tell you what I was doing the day Thierry Sabine died!
