RUST magazine: Rust#20

Rust#20 It’s Dakar Rally time – and RUST rates the runners and riders. Have we 
got it right? WIN a pair of GoldenTyre extreme enduro tyres Round The World adventurer in the making, Andy Dukes ponders the 
solo mission After 15 years racing from one bivouac to the next Chris Evans finally escaped the Dakar, but this year he’s been called back. A good thing? We all need a guru – someone who’s been around the traps and talks sense. So here’s one we at RUST know well… Yep, RUST 20 has gone live with just minutes to spare before the Christmas break. So there’s some good reading for you here for when you’ve had your fill of the usual movie classic re-runs, let alone the endless mince pies. We hope you have a happy Christmas and the New Year brings some great rides. We’ll be hopping it up in 2017 and look forward to keeping you entertained as best we can, so see you again in January! Seasons greetings! JON BENTMAN (Editor, RUST)


RUST Trail The ultimate support vehicle, the Mercedes 4x4 Sprinter... some fesh-fesh (talc-like sand) between two gullies. Just behind us in the dust was a giant six-wheel truck and I was out of the camper even before it stopped moving. The truck missed us by inches, fortunately going round by the side I didn’t jump out of. This year we’ll be aboard the ultimate assistance vehicle – a Mercedes 4x4 Sprinter. Ridiculously expensive but perfect for the off-road bits and oh so comfy. And a bit of comfort, on what will no doubt be my most uncomfortable three weeks of the year, goes a long way…
