Jose Ignacio Cornejo has done both of these. ‘Nacho’ as he is known to his fans, arrived on the rally scene with a splash - finishing second on the treacherous Desafío Inka on his first attempt. In 2016 Nacho won the Cross-Country Rallies Junior Championship. Off the back of this success he was picked up by the Monster Energy Honda Team to stand in for a then injured Paulo Gonçalves on the 2018 Dakar; and the rest, as they say, is history.
