Pablo Quintanilla joins Monster Energy Honda Team

Duel FIM Cross-Country Rallies World Champion and runner-up in the 2020 Dakar Rally, Pablo Quintanilla, has been named as a Monster Energy Honda Team rider for the 2021 season and the 2022 Dakar Rally.

Quintanilla arrives with a fine track record in his Cross-Country Rallies racing career, which began with Honda back in 2013. He went on to claim numerous triumphs, the most outstanding of which include two FIM World Championship titles in 2016 and 2017, runner-up spot in the 2020 Dakar Rally and third place in 2016.

The Chilean rider will make his Monster Energy Honda Team debut astride the Honda CRF450 RALLY next week for the AndalucÌ_a Rally, which will take place on Spanish terrain in the regions of CÌÁdiz and Seville from May 11-15.

"I am very happy and motivated to join the Monster Energy Honda Team," the 34-year-old said. "For me it is a great honour to be part of this tremendous team that has shown such great development and enormous professionalism over recent years. My intention is to be able to convey my knowledge and my experience to the team and I hope to get great results. I wish to thank everyone for the opportunity and I am sure that together we will do a great job."

General Manager, Ruben Faria, added. "In recent years we have had a great team, with riders able to win races. They have shown it: Ricky won in 2020 and Kevin in 2021, but Nacho was a good leader and Joan was also in front. Benavides left the team after winning the Dakar and we were left with one rider less, so we had to look for a top rider to maintain the high level of Monster Energy Honda Team. This is what we have done, and that is why I am very pleased to have Pablo Quintanilla aboard. I‰Ûªve known Pablo since I was a rider and, as well as being a great person, I‰Ûªm sure that he will be a very strong element who will reinforce the great atmosphere in the team."
