‰ÛÏObviously, it‰Ûªs been a really tough year for everyone," Price lamented. "With all the restrictions, we‰Ûªve not been able to race like we normally would. We‰Ûªve only managed to fit in one rally since the Dakar in January, which was great, but I think everyone is looking forward to getting back to some serious racing now.
"For me, I pretty much had to leave home for the last three months and won‰Ûªt be heading back to Australia until after Dakar. My base is now in Dubai and I‰Ûªll spend Christmas there on the run up to the event. It‰Ûªs great that we can get out into the dunes for testing but it‰Ûªs still a big sacrifice to make, missing out on the regular family time over the holidays.
"For the last couple of months, the team have been testing hard, things have been going well and there‰Ûªs certainly nothing better to build your fitness than time on the bike. We‰Ûªve been able to try out a lot of new things and I‰Ûªm really happy with how the bike feels. At the end of the day, I know the KTM 450 RALLY is going to get me to the finish, the rest is up to me!‰Û
