Finish Paris-Dakar by Bike 2009

An exhausted, but happy bunch of cyclists arrived healthy and safely in Dakar!!! After 10 weeks of cycling through wind, a few rain showers, and a lot of sun the peloton was welcomed the rhythm of African drums.

The thirsty throats of the cyclists were quenched by Senegalese beer during the cocktail party at the finish line on the shores of Lac Rose. Eric Voutaz from Switzerland was physically and mentally the strongest rider and was 52 minutes ahead of his countryman David Imboden. The Swiss bank employee didn't win a yellow jersey, but he was dressed up in a traditional Mauritanian costume. The podium was completed by Dirk Franckx from Belgium. Toos van Beijsterveldt from The Netherlands finished first in the female competition. Toos was dressed in a colourful Senegalese dress and she was flanked by Betty Otterstedt from Sweden at a second place and Maartje Knoop from the Netherlands a third place. It are not only the number one, two and three who are the winners of "Paris-Dakar by Bike". Fourteen cyclists managed to cycle the whole distance between the French and Senegalese capital without missing one of the 7.214 kilometers. Cycling the whole distance, yes or no, all of the cyclists proved to be determined to reach the finish in Dakar unless tough road conditions, uncertain weather conditions and sickness. All of them : Congratulations with their great efforts. Chapeau !!!
