With another year of rally racing experience, and his first world championship event victory secured, Andrew Short carries increased confidence into the 2020 Dakar Rally. Despite a small fall in testing, Short is aiming to secure his best Dakar finish to date.
‰ÛÏI think everyone is really excited to be here in Saudi and get racing again," The American said. "The atmosphere inside the team is excellent and we‰Ûªre all looking forward to the event now. My feeling on the bike is good, I did have a little crash yesterday but luckily didn‰Ûªt do myself, or the bike, too much damage. People have been saying how soft the terrain is, but for me desert is desert, no matter where you are in the world. From a sporting perspective, racing here in Saudi Arabia for the first time feels great and I‰Ûªm honoured to be a part of this latest chapter in the Dakar. It‰Ûªs going to be a massive challenge and a very long race, but right now, I just can‰Ûªt wait to get started.‰Û
