2010: KTM 525 “Super Rocket”
It is due to small size budget recycled from my Dakar 2007 bike, upgraded with a new engine from KTM and some other parts from Meca’System.
Meca’System is my team, a very professional team I trust, and we will in fact be the biggest team represented in the Dakar with 10 bikers and 4 on quad.
Look, my supporters are riding the dakar with me! The spectators just love this.
She’s just arrived to Buenos Aires by boat.
#76 – racenumer must be attached, or no race.
The two Boxes
The boxes contain my mandatory safety gear and the good-for-all-kit, that I’ll have on my bike:
spare engine, carb, extra roadbook, various spareparts, helmet light, some tools, duct tape, gogglebag! And survival food as nuts, bars and energy gel. and extra clothes of course.
All contents are in doubles, because the organisations trucks take turns carrying them to the next bivouac.

Then putting on cover, saddle, fuel tanks – and wheels of course…
Then the Super Rocket was shipped to Buenos Aires
