After many hours pondering over my options, support packages and cost of competing in The Dakar I’ve chosen to apply ride in the Malle Moto class. What’s the Malle Moto class I hear you ask? It’s old school Dakar, no support team running round after you, no mechanic to hand the bike over to at the end of the day to sort out, no one to put your tent up and sort your riding gear out for the next day, just me, my bike and a metal chest 100cm x 40cm x 40cm to put all my spares in, my tools and any personal belongings and home comforts I can fit in. Only 20 riders out of the 200 riders that are lucky enough to be chosen to ride The Dakar are eligible to apply to ride Malle Moto. After weighing it all up, the cost of support and the fact that there are going to be at least two marathon stages in the next Dakar I applied to ride Malle Moto. I’ve just received conformation that I’ve been accepted to ride Malle Moto Class! I’m the only Brit doing it and you may be surprised to hear but I believe it’s the ultimate true Dakar experience, very excited by the whole idea!
