Road to Dakar 2019

The Dakar is a rally raid made up of 12 stages that takes place in Latin America, but first and foremost, it is an incomparable human adventure.

Its history has been built in the world’s finest deserts with men and women from all horizons, taking on one of the hardest sportingchallenges of our era.

A competition of extremes and an orienteering race, the Dakar brings together the leading rally raid riders and drivers, as well as amateur competitors who come to fulfil their dream, experience an adventure and meet the biggest challenge of their life on a bike, on a quad, in a car or in a truck. Over the last 40 years, each year 500 adventurers from more than 60 nationalities have come together for 15 days of a unique competition on which extraordinary feats of human endeavour are played out.

The 40th edition Dakar Rally will start in Peru Lima on the 6th of January 2018 and end in Argentina Cordoba on the 20th January 2019.

Dakar 2019 will be Johan & Mike’s 3rd Dakar Rally. They hope to finish the Rally with an extraordinary result.
