“Last year I witnessed the hardest stage of my life on day 3 when I broke my finger. Everyone remembers the cow I hit in Africa but that stage going to Fiambala was a nightmare. I then had to have two operations. This year with the best riders on 450cc bikes, no-one knows what to expect. I was able to test in Tunisia but the technology and the style is so different compared to the bigger bikes. It's a lighter bike (25kgs less) and you have to adapt to a different brake distance and acceleration. My goal is to finish as close as possible of the Top 10. I no longer come for an adventure but as an athlete. In the World Cup races I competed in, there isn't one rider that I haven't beaten and I'm crazy enough to battle it out with anyone. I have a lot of respect for the race but I'm not afraid of the Dakar. I just know it isn't a children's game.”
top ten this year!

Yep, Sam has to be the one to follow. 22 and i have seldom seen a fitter person, this guy gets joy out of pushing (punishing) his body. He can ride fast, has a brain, reckon he will do well as a first timer at Dakar.

Nice promo. Had somewhat forgotten how brutal that Kemal Merkit crash was...

I see he's on the entry list again this year

Watch full size & in HD.

Not as beautiful as their effort in the last two years, but maybe I'm spoiled

Newsletter: Strong KTM lineup for Dakar 2012

KTM: Ready to Race Dakar 2012!


When the KTM Factory rally team went off to Fontjouncouse in the south of France recently it was all about carrying out final tests on the KTM 450 rally bike ahead of the challenge of Dakar 2012, to enjoy the camaraderie of the Orange Rally Family and to have some fun. Now the countdown is in full swing for the world’s most important rally and the KTM factory riders are all “Ready to Race”.



The official KTM Factory Rally Team, under the leadership of manager Alex Doringer and technical manager Stefan Huber was announced last week at EICMA, the world’s biggest motorcycle fair. Cyril Despres renewed his contract with KTM at EICMA and Marc Coma renewed his commitment to the Austrian manufacturer in September, once again securing the world’s two leading rally riders for the company’s attempt at its eleventh consecutive Dakar victory. Coma of Spain and French-born Despres have each won the Dakar Rally three times and together represent one of the most exciting rivalries in modern motorsports. In 2011 their two support riders or ‘water carriers’ will continue to be Juan Pedrero of Spain for Coma and Ruben Faria of Portugal for Despres. While all four riders belong to the KTM Factory Rally Team, they will ride in the respective liveries of their individual sponsors: Coma and Pedrero for MRW KTM and Despres and Faria for Red Bull KTM.



All four will compete on the latest KTM 450 Rally bike, which has undergone overall updates and improvements to the 2011 model on which Coma and Despres successfully absolved the bike’s maiden Dakar ride, finishing 1-2 after 17 days grueling competition.



Also at the final tests in the south of France was KTM Enduro Factory Team rider Johnny Aubert, who is to also get his first taste of the thrill of the Dakar in 2012. Johnny, who will continue to contest the E2 World Championships in 2012, will be riding a standard KTM Rally bike and will be taken care of by the KTM Customer Service, which supports the many KTM privateers who contest the rally. Around 50% of competitors put their trust in KTM for this, the toughest of all rallies.



Alex Doringer: “What we want to do is to give Johnny a taste of what its like in the Dakar. His object not be to get a top result on his first time out, but to finish the rally and to learn as much as possible in the process.”



The KTM Factory Team’s vast amount of equipment for the Dakar Rally is scheduled to leave for Argentina from the French port of Le Havre on Monday November 21.
