Ricky Brabec Morocco Rally stage win

Oct 092017

American Ricky Brabec proved to be the fastest as the Morocco Rally arrived at its third stage – the first leg of the two-day marathon stage – which took place from Erfoud and the Lihoudi Erg region. His first career World Champinship stage win, Brabec was flying on the Honda CRF450 RALLY and was untouchable throughout the day. The triumph marks Brabec’s first triumph in the FIM Cross-Country Rallies World Championship.

"I’m really happy to have won this first stage in the world championship and for the two final stages we will see if we can help the team get a result," exclaimed Brabec afterwards. "The navigation today was pretty difficult in some spots. It was a really fast track today so it was fairly easy to look down and take your time. Some parts were really confusing with all the tracks going in every direction, which was tough. The bike feels good. The rougher terrain for me is better. I was raised in California and our deserts are pretty rough so I’m used to that and it’s one of my strong points. We’ll see what tomorrow has to bring. I can open the track well and get a top five in the stage. The speed is there for us; it just comes down to navigation at that speed."
