Dakar 2007: Report after 12 Days
Patrick van Lee is still competing on an Aprilia in the Dakar 2007 rally. After 12 days he's gaining places in the rankings very fast. Patrick earns major respect because he's been riding around with 2 broken ribs for about a week now. The RXV 450 has been performing without any big problems the last 3 days. Patrick lost some time helping other motorcyclists and cars. He even gave Robbie Gordon with his Hummer some of his spare petrol so that Robbie could continue the rally.
Stage 8 71
Stage 9 65
Stage 10 46
He's currently ranked 84th of 141 riders and number 30 in the super production 250cc-450cc class.
