Onboard with the Argentinean Rally Armada dune training for Dakar
Ride POV onboard with Argentinean factory rally riders Kevin Benavides, Luciano Benavides and Franco Caimi in the dunes in Fiambala for their final training ahead of the 2021 Dakar Rally.
The former ISDE team members for Argentina are now rivals riding for the three main teams (Honda, Husqvarna and Yamaha respectively) at Dakar but with just three weeks left until the race start in Saudi Arabia, the trio have been getting some extra hours on the saddle in the Fiambala dunes.
“We are really happy to be able to spend four days training together as a family.” Says Kevin Benavides. “We are close to the Dakar so it’s great to get some kilometres and roadbook training done.
“The most important thing is to keep the rhythm. We had a great time with Franco and Luciano because even if we’re rivals we fight for the same goal, to get an Argentinean at the top of the podium.”
