Sherco TVS Factory Rally signs Johnny Aubert for the upcoming 2020 Dakar Rally in Saudi Arabia
Johnny Aubert signs with Sherco TVS Factory Rally to compete in the two remaining winter rallies and the 2020 Dakar Rally which takes place in Saudi Arabia for the first time in history. The two-time world enduro champion joins Mickael Metge, Adrien Metge and Lorenzo Santolino to ride the Sherco 450 RTR in the upcoming rallies.
Aubert isn’t new to the Dakar Rally, he had his first go in 2012 and came back in 2018 to clinch a sixth-place finish. Having raced previously on KTM rally bikes, in 2018 he rode for Gas Gas but they rode KTM bikes with Gas Gas decals. He will make the switch to the French brand for his third participation in the world’s toughest rally.
Aubert will start his preparation for the Dakar this September 21 at the Panafrica Rally where we’ll see him for the first time defending Sherco’s colours. To continue strengthening his rally racing skills, Aubert will also take part in the Rally of Morocco on October 3.
