The Dakar, an incomparable human adventure whose history has been built in the finest deserts of the planet, is amongst the major sporting challenges of our era. Both a race and a test of navigational skills, it involves not only the leading riders and drivers of the rally raid discipline, but also amateur competitors, who often take part to make their dream come true or to rise to a challenge, behind the handlebars or steering wheel of their bike, quad, car or truck. Fifty nationalities come together each year for this mixture of competition and solidarity whose television coverage is seen by a billion viewers in 190 countries.
More than just a simple race to see who is quickest, the Dakar demands off-piste navigational capacities and consistency. More significantly, on rally raids, endurance is paramount, with the slightest flaw proving critical. This mix of physical resistance and technical performance has, for almost the last thirty years, attracted champions from various horizons, all wishing to test their mettle and try and tame this out-of-the ordinary event.”
