It's official

It is now official after months of waiting, Cyril Despres signed with Yamaha Motor France to compete in the Dakar. A two-year contract unites the five times winner of the Dakar and brand to forks. Clearly stated objective: victory!

Since the last edition, we knew that Yamaha was looking for a top driver able to prevail after the departure of Helder Rodrigues at Honda. We also knew that Cyril was looking for a handlebar after separation with KTM. If Honda Husqvarna options and even clothing were maintained trails, the Yamaha option was obviously the most realistic. The experience of blue in this area is well established, the latest version of the YZ-F Rally is ultra-efficient and the French will be able to get a sixth victory in the next edition. A beautiful union in which some Peterhansel is not completely foreign ...
