Australian Rodney Faggotter and his Yamalube Yamaha Rally teammates are ready to take to the start of the 2019 Dakar Rally aboard the latest version of the WR450F Rally machine.

With Franco Caimi's participation confirmed, the team, who have been in Peru for several days, will feature a complete four-rider line-up consisting of Adrien Van Beveren, Xavier de Soultrait, Franco Caimi and Rodney Faggotter.

Faggotter is expected to once again play a crucial role for the Yamalube Yamaha Rally team in Peru.

‰ÛÏI‰Ûªm really looking forward to get things started here in Peru," Faggotter enthused. "I got here last week and it was great to catch up with all the team. We‰Ûªve made a few small changes to the bike and I can‰Ûªt wait to race it. For me the second week of this Dakar will be crucial, as we will be criss-crossing some parts from the previous days. There might also be tracks from previous races in the area, so it‰Ûªll be crucial to remain focused. I think that might also be the determining factor for the victory this year. No matter what the conditions are, I want to be strong from start to finish and fight for the best possible result.‰Û
