This is an achievement in itself and that inspite of a broken toe. It is heartbreaking that none from the media think this is deserving of a place. Go CS go.

Fully agree with extreme_torque.. I have been following the updates by searching every time on Google but its just sad to see such a standout performance not getting any space in our local media. Go CS!

Great run by Santosh he is consistently improving with a broke toe. A Big bow to his efforts. Very unfortunate that the print or media is not mentioning his efforts.

Thanks for correcting mayankk!

Nevertheless I think the event is not receiving the amount of importance F1 or any other where India represents. His efforts are worth the mention especially riding those conditions with a broken toe!

Congratulations to Santosh on finishing the rally and finishing at a good position as well on his debut.
Except for a handful, rest of the Indian public wouldn't have realized the enormity of this rally. It is something like the World cup of rallies.
The only Indian who I heard who almost took part in the Dakar was Jagath Nanjappa years ago.

Goes on to show Indians are up there with the rest.

I seriously doubt that. There were few who knew that he had gone for the Dakar and few will know when he returns! There is not going to be a reception or even acknowledgement of the fact that he finished the most difficult rally in the world on his first attempt.
