Going back for seconds……. Dakar 2020
I know now that hard work, pain and failure are followed by success.
Having been through one Dakar you would think I have had enough, this is not the case. I want more.
My dream, my daring adventure is still alive.
Dakar 2018 was incredible tough on my mind, body and spirit, but now that I know what it takes I know I can do better. I placed in top ten as a rookie and I know that if I go back a podium finish in the world’s toughest Motorsport race is within my reach.
I know it is within my reach as I have tried and tested myself and I know my limits now. I know where my weaknesses and strengths are and I am using this time to prepare myself to take on this adventure again. There is an old racing mantra that goes like this, “To finish first you have to first finish”, my goal in 2020 will be to do both.
I will have to endure a lot of sacrifices in the next year as I prepare myself. As a privateer and average Joe without any factory race team backing me the financial burden itself will test me to my limits. The training will push me to my limits, the preparation and logistics required will push me to my limits, but I am ready and willing to tackle these 100% head on and give everything I have to realize my dream.
The year ahead is going to be tough and that is why I need your support, if you love Motorsport and racing and always wanted to test yourself but you cannot, I invite you to join me and we will do it together. With you as my backup we will tackle this ultimate adventure together, I am willing to put everything on the line to do this, quitting is not an option for me but I can’t do it without each and every one of you. I invite you to join team #mydaringadventure let’s do this, together, once and for all lets climb that podium step together.
As my Dakar in 2018 proved, “Its teamwork that makes the dreamwork”
Thank you for being part of this exhilarating adventure to the Dakar 2018.
