I've been programming my DVR to record the Dakar 2018 rally and am appalled at NBC Sports' coverage. Like last year, coverage consists of a 30 minute summary the day following each day's racing action. However, broadcast times are all over the map. For example, on January 7 and 9 the show is early evening, but on other days broadcast times range from 11 PM to 2:30 AM the following day. But not to worry. On Monday, January 8, we get to watch 10 hours of poker from 1 PM to 11 PM.
