To compete and complete the Dakar is not just a physical challenge but also a mental challenge. I would say it is 40% physical and 60% mental. Donovan’s attitude is right towards this giant challenge and I’m confident to write the newsflash now that Donovan will fulfill his dream. My advice (which worked for me) is not to get involved in the race. You control your pace and make sure that every days’ challenge end in a positive note – to get home. Live your Life, we only have one!
