I trained a lot before the race even in Morocco, which allowed me to go very well in this rally and thus overcome power riders like Marc Coma and Cyril Despres. Unfortunately we had a mechanical mishap that kept us from winning the race debut soon, but given that this was the first shakedown of Honda for the Dakar, I am sure that the HRC team will work hard to ensure that nothing fails in South America .'m actually very confident that you can win the Dakar 2013, "said the rider who will participate in the Baja 500 Portalegre after conducting a thorough test session in order to Dakar.

I like the way he call the aliens "power riders". I want to be a power rider one day when i grow up too!
He is ambitious to say he is going to challenge the boys to win the Dakar. If anyone can take if from Coma and Despres it will be him, who has been shadowing them for years now. But its a long race and anything can happen. I can't wait.
Dreaming of Dakar
Everyone has a max speed, 90% of that max speed is much safer and easier, and if that 90% speed isn't fast enough at Dakar, you enter the snowball. - neduro
