    A mate who is a KTM Nut, has 5 of the things, has put me onto the Dakar race which is starting on the 5th Jan.

    I think is the correct link.

    can translate to English, right click.
    My mate bought his Harley in 1974, (Shovel) which sites in a room, with only KTM's being ridden these days. Think KTM is major sponsor, that would be right.

    The Dakar, it's in Saudi Arabia this year, it's been run in South America in recent times. It was only won by Australian Toby Price last year riding a KTM not that you'd know too much from the media over here.

    He came third on his debut in 2015, won it on his second attempt in 2016, crashed out with a broken femur in 2017, got third in 2018 and then won again last year riding with a pinned broken right wrist and is probably the favorite this year. That's kind of a big deal for some people who follow sports other than just fucking NRL, AFL or cricket.

    It's a real shame there's not more TV coverage.
    Toby Price is a true legend.
    Most people can't even finish when race fit, but to enter with a freshly repaired broken wrist and still win is incredible.
