We have some bad news as we approach the start of the 2020 edition of the Dakar. Yes, because yesterday Gilbert Sabine disappeared. He was 98 years old, Thierry's father, who as we remember was the organizer of the famous RAID.

Following the tragic death of his son in 1986, due to the helicopter that crashed in Mali, Gilbert decided to put aside his commitment as a dentist, to collect the witness left by Thierry, taking care of the organization of the race until 1993 and then handing it over to the ASO.
