Team: Monster Energy Honda Team. CRF 450 Rally
Number of years racing Dakar: 3
Favorite thing about racing Dakar: The adventure, unpredicible, the different terrain, the strategy, the adrenaline in every stage, and everything can change in one moment! Love this race! We prepare all the year for this 15 days!
Hardest thing about Dakar: Your mind! You have to battle with you all the time! I think this race is really mental. We have the other competitors, with bigger rival is you!
Craziest Dakar story: I have a lot! But the most emotional thing, when you think everything is ok something happens, or when you think all is lost something happens! That is the most craziest on this rally, everything can change in one second. In 2018, I was leading the overall, in my country , on stage 10 near at my home, I take a wrong river for a mistake of organization and 10 riders more make the same mistake, I lose 50 min, at that moment I think my race is finished, but I fight still the end for my 2 and best position!
