Yamaha's 2013 Dakar Roundup... Prepare for Despres

Here comes one more piece of video Dakar greatness, this time from the Yamaha Racing team. Watch this 3 and a half minute-long roundup with Yamaha's top riders in the 2013 edition of the world's toughest cross-country rally and prepare for an even greater race in 2014.
Why we believe it's going to be even greater? Because one of the world's best enduro riders, Cyril Despres has just signed with Team Blue, after announcing his departure from the ranks of KTM Red Bull team earlier this year.

With 5 Dakar rallies won, there's only one rider to surpass Despres: Stephane Peterhansel, with 6 victories. Retired from motorcycle racing to racing the Dakar on 4 wheels, Peterhansel is also the winner of the car class this year.

The 2014 Dakar rally will take place January 5 through 18, and we already have the poster.
