Zero to Sixty : A Dakar Adventure

Zero to Sixty : A Dakar Adventure

Description

David Mills first discovered the legendary Dakar Rally during a three-month motorcycle tour of South America. In 2012, he became an embedded member of a Chilean Dakar team with unprecedented access to the rally; now he shares the story of his experiences. This firsthand account describes the three grueling weeks he lived with the tight-knit Dakar community as they battled the brutal conditions in the ultimate long-distance, off-road competition. Zero to Sixty shares stories of crossing the driest deserts on the planet, visiting lush vineyards and wine regions, getting lost on mountain passes, encountering earthquakes and landslides, enduring drastic temperature changes, and experiencing altitude sickness at more than 15,500 feet. Zero to Sixty offers a unique, behind-the-scenes look at the legendary Dakar Rally, its people and its history, providing insight as to what drives these athletes to live on the edge of disaster while attempting to finish what is the world's deadliest sporting event.
