Australian Riders to Watch in 2016:
#3 Toby Price KTM - Bikes

After having a handful of Aussie competitors to follow in recent years, Australian Dakar fans have just the one rider to cheer on in 2016, with Toby Price the only Australian in the entire field of both Bike and Quad riders this year.

After finishing third in his debut Dakar last year, the current Australian AORC champion is considered one of the big favourites to win the bike class in this years event and will have the entire nation following his every move.

As we have done for more than ten years now, Fullnoise.com.au will have daily updates and results from this years event.
