Unforgettable welcoming back home! I can’t thank everyone enough for taking time out of their own day to come and share this with my family, team, sponsors and myself! ❤️
A deal is a deal! 🤦🏻♂️👴🏻😂 Laia Sanz you’re one insane/crazy individual! Congratulations on your 11th place finish at the gnarliest race in the world! And no, I’m not thanking you for my new haircut! 😭😂
It feels amazing to stand here knowing I have won the Dakar Rally, I don’t think it has really sunk in yet. I thought at the beginning of the event I would be lucky to even make the rest day. My @Red Bull KTM Factory Racing Rally Bike has been amazing, I want to say a big thank you to my mechanic Joe for that. The whole crew here do an amazing job – without them, I would be no one. The team put in so much work on the lead up to the event and when we get here it’s down to me out there on the track so it feels amazing to be able to reward them all with this result and keep KTM's winning streak going! 🏆 🍾
We did it! 🏆☝🏻😍😭🍾
2019 Dakar Rally Champion! 🤯
Well, I’m all set to take on the final stage of the Dakar Rally! If I was told that I would be in this position a couple weeks ago I would tell them they’re absolutely crazy. I’m going to give it everything I’ve got and let the rest unfold itself, regardless of the result I’ll still be smiling (potentially without a mullet) appreciative of the opportunity I have, the @ktmfactoryracing team I’m surrounded by and the support you’ve all given me! 🙌🏻🇦🇺❤️
Time to put the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing Rally Bike to bed, tomorrow is a big day! 😴
Another crazy mass start today with challenging conditions, just 100km to go and a minute separating the lead. We're in for a crazy end to the toughest Dakar I've ever raced!
Stage 9 - 5th 🏁
Current Overall Position - 1st, leading by +1:02 🏆
I got through stage nine today where we had the mass-start. There was no chance to make up any time or lose time really, I just had to stick with the group. Tomorrow is only a 100-kilometre stage, but I think it’s going to feel more like 300. The boys are really going to up their pace and all I can do is try my best once more and try to stay with them. If I can get through tomorrow and finish on the podium, I’ll be more than happy.
Set for Stage 9 😏 feeling determined as ever! I’m going to give it everything I’ve got. Can’t thank you all enough for the support! 🙌🏻🇦🇺
Big old day in the saddle! Tomorrow we're in for a 96km Liason and 313km of Racing after another Mass Start, no doubt Stage 9 is going to throw everything at us!
Stage 8 - 3rd 🏁
Current Overall Position - 1st, leading by +01:03 🏆
I knew today had to count so I gave it everything – the wrist is really starting to sting now! It was a long special at 360 kilometers but I got through it and I’m pleased with how the whole stage went. Just two days left so I’ll get some rest tonight and attack again tomorrow. When the helmet goes on, you know I’m just going to do the best I can.
We’re past the point of no return now – there’s no stopping! 🇦🇺🦘🥊
