I don’t know if you had any plans this fine Sunday but with heat records being broken willy nilly around the globe, I thought it might be nice to spend the day indoors near the fridge with 7 hours and 21 minutes of 2012 Dakar footage.

Before you hit play you’re going to want to make sure you have a plentiful supply of beer and snacks, you’ll also want to make sure you’ve got a comfy chair and make sure the Mrs knows that you’re off-limits for the next 8 or so hours. Good luck with that last one.
