The Simon Pavey Dakar 2013 Thread

Once again I am pleased to share that serial Dakar finisher and ex-pat Aussie is returning to the Dakar for the 9th time.

This year he'll be riding for Husqvarna UK and has decided it's a good idea to take some support. His website is live, but still undergoing some testing and has a few little bugs that I am slowly working out, web design is not my forte!

Hopefully we will be able to bring you some great coverage before and during the race again, as per 2011 Dakar, we are working on a little series of videos to do just such as well as providing some decent imagery and a little insight into the inner workings of his bike and the Dakar.

Here are a few pictures to get you excited, also check out the site as well for any new updates!

They're a Portuguese team that race but have also developed a rally kit for the newer generation 449 / 511 huskies

Google them, they do large tanks, nav towers, bash plates and fairings for sale to privateers
