The “new” Dakar has changed destination, we will now explore South America, a coast-to-coast challenge from Argentina to Chile and back again. Since the cancellation of Dakar 2008, I have worked hard to be able to take the start again.
And also thanks to my sponsors. This year I will again ride a KTM 525 (partly my old from Dakar 2007) equipped with a special rally kit from Meca’System. I will be one of the Team Meca’System riders and having a designated mechanic Laurent who I share with another rider. This is the best set up I have been part of ever, and is the same as I was riding with in Pharaons Rally october 2008 where I finished 12th overall.
Follow me in this adventure through Argentina and Chile. See also my videos on eurosport.se.
Loctite, which is one of my sponsors, has a fantastic link with images of the Rally Dakar 2009, have a look yourself at Dunerider’s Rally Dakar 2009 Photos.
