The team is eager to challenge for stage wins and to finish the longest and toughest rally on earth on the podium.
The Dakar 2012 consists of 14 stages and is held over 8,391 kilometres. The route leads from the Argentinian coast across the Andes through Chile all the way to Peru´s capital Lima. Portugal´s Paulo Goncalves, the two Spaniards Joan Barreda and Jose Manuel Pellicer, as well as Brazil´s Ike Klaumann and Zé Hélio are well prepared, having put an intensive preparation behind them. The new Husqvarna TE 449 RR by Speedbrain has been thoroughly tested. The team is looking forward to race the lightest bikes in the field to Lima.
Stage wins and an overall podium are the target for the Dakar 2012. But first comes the starting ceremony at the Plaza Colón, before the opening stage on 1 January kicks off with the first 57 km against the clock. Then comes a 763-kilometer long connection to Santa Rosa de la Pampa. Tomorrow marks the first hurdles and challenges at the beginning of two long weeks.
