Marc Coma (12th Dakar – KTM), 1 stage victory, 1st overall : "I’m very happy, that’s for sure. But even on the last day, we couldn’t go. We suffered a storm, a storm, there was mud and with the tires deserted it wasn’t. not easy. Fortunately, to finish in a more normal way, the organization cut the special. Even today it was not a walk. I had a problem with the foam bib (rally specific tire – raid with which it is possible to ride with very low pressure to improve grip, editor’s note). I then had to change my strategy. I then had to push and I set a big pace. It had to be done to provoke some The entry into Bolivia opened a decisive period. We knew that. I survived and passed. That was the key. So I’m very happy. Very happy to be there. That’s all. a life of work, that of a team, with the ideal bike… Now, after so much effort, you have to decompress and enjoy ".

Paulo Goncalves, (9th Dakar – Honda), 1 stage victory, 2nd overall : "I can be happy to arrive here in 2nd position in the general classification. I started the rally there, then I went down to 3rd, and came back up at the end. At one point, I was in a situation to challenge the victory to Marc Coma, since there was barely more than 5 minutes between the two of us. But then I took a penalty for changing the engine. Joan Barreda also had a superb race, since "He dominated the standings. A little later I then got help from my teammate Jeremias Israel, r. Without him I certainly wouldn’t be here to celebrate second place. So I dedicate this performance to him. And we will try again next year ".

Toby Price (first Dakar – KTM), 1 stage victory, 3rd overall : "After 70 kilometers of the race, we were showered with a heavy downpour. It was really hard to drive. Then the special was shortened. To find myself here in third position, it’s completely crazy. I didn’t. no words to describe it. When I decided to come three or four months ago, I was rather worried, I didn’t know what I was getting into. And now I’m on the finish line… happy".

Pablo Quintanilla (3rd Dakar – KTM), 1 stage victory, 4th overall: "It was very difficult. Very hard. It was a real experience to finish this Dakar. An adventure. The hardest of my life, no doubt, but the most rewarding too. I finished this first Dakar after being injured, and to have come a long, difficult road where there were sacrifices, and even an operation. I am very happy today. Very happy for my family, my parents and all the people who supported me. Dakar was very difficult. It was cold there, there were passages at very high altitude, all that represents a lot of hours on the bike ".

Laia Sanz (5th Dakar – Honda), 0 stage victory, 9th overall: "I’m very happy, really very happy! If I had been offered a place in ten before the race, I would have signed straight away. Many had told me that it was possible, but the Dakar is a really unpredictable race. , difficult and risky. It’s a great result that I want to share with the whole team, who put their trust in me from the first moment, giving me this great chance. Thank you also to all of my people who have been with me throughout long. ¡Muchas gracias! "

Olivier Pain (9th Dakar – Yamaha), 0 stage victory, 10th overall : "Finishing the Dakar is always a success, finishing in the top 10 is a great pride. I am happy to have achieved this result for a team that worked so hard, both before and during the rally . Certainly we arrived here with the intention of fighting for the victory and in this respect my result is not satisfactory. Although we did a lot of tests before the Dakar, it is obvious that we lacked the driving in race conditions. The base of the WR450F Rally is undoubtedly very good, the engine is strong and reliable, but this is a brand new factory bike that we need to develop further to get the most out of its potential. ".

Xavier de Soultrait (2nd Dakar – Yamaha), 0 stage victory, 13th overall : "My goal for what was my 2nd Dakar was to finish in the top 20, so I’m very happy with my result. I’m also very happy because I learned a lot – how to adjust the bike, how to ride faster in the fesh fesh, things that are completely impossible to learn outside of the race. I can still improve as a private pilot but there is a limit as to the results I can achieve. real solution would be to be able to participate in other races throughout the year, take part in the tests and train in Morocco, and this is the path in which I would like to embark ".

Joan Barreda Bort (5th Dakar – Honda), 4 stage wins, 17th overall : "After the problems encountered during the marathon stage, I think we did a great teamwork and obtained a good final result. I had been leading the race for several days and I won four stages (before being reclassified 40th after his fourth victory for engine change, editor’s note), and I don’t think I need to demonstrate more. In the end, the thing I’m most proud of is Paulo’s result. He really deserves it ".

Alain Duclos (13th Dakar – Sherco), 0 stage victory, 25th overall : coming soon, stay tuned !
