After the holidays there is killer coverage of the Dakar Rally on OLN. It's the road rally from Madrid to Dakar. It takes 2 weeks and it's through some of the worlds' most intense conditions (sand,water, desert, jungles) Last year it had 300+ vehicles - cycles, cars & 5ton trucks.
OLN network covers it nightly for the days segments and you won't believe some of the crap these folks go through. It starts like Jan 1st or just after. I'll post more info when it's available.
*Also winter olympics coming!!! Go Jamacian Bob-sled team
