Team: Monster Energy CRF 450 Rally

Number of years racing Dakar: I have done the Dakar for 4 years now and 2020 will be my 5th 

Favorite thing about racing Dakar: My favorite thing about racing the Dakar is that it’s only you out there and you have to be smart and also know the motorcycle and what it can do and what’s wrong with it when something happens and you need to be prepared to fix this issue. Just you and desert and your motorcycle.

Hardest thing about Dakar: There’s nothing hard about the Dakar, it’s all in your head. We prepare for this all year long, i would say there’s more frustrating moments then difficult days. Yea the cold, the rain, the early mornings suck but that’s part of the rally... we are men.
