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.

KTM 525 Super Rocket, Dakar 2010

She’s just arrived to Buenos Aires by boat.

Racenumber is attached

#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.

The box for all rally equipment
This year in grey – they’ve been white since ever…
