– I feel both excited and a little more nervous than usual. This year’s racing season has been good after my victory in Dakar 2010, including a 15th place in the Australasian Safari Rally and a silver medal in the Nordic Enduro Championships.
Good preparation is necessary. Annie will race her KTM “Super Rocket” equipped with rally kit from Meca’System. Also Annie has been in the Morocco desert training.
– I heard the rumours it will be a very tough Dakar this year with some really technical and challenging stages. My experience says I have to take it day by day. And to keep navigation, machine, body and mind on the track, all the way, concludes the little rider.
