The 2010 Dakar Rally is history, and we’re glad to say that a Canadian rider from Montreal, Patrick Trahan, was among the finishers.

CMG competition contributor Larry Tate has provided us with the next best thing to blow-by-blow accounts of this extraordinary motorcycling event, but for those who want more, we suggest a visit to, where some fantastic photographs have been assembled into a website gallery.

This might be the last of the South American Dakars, which will solve a serious problem of semantics, but some might regret the moving of this rally back to Africa.
