Rodney Faggotter to chase Dakar glory as a privateer in 2020
Australian Yamaha dealer Rodney Faggotter will compete in the 2020 Dakar Rally on a WR450F as a privateer. when the event kicks off in Saudi Arabia on 5 Jan 2020.

The Longreach, QLD dealer from Centretune Motorcycles has a long history with the Rally following his 2012 debut and 2013 event when he placed an impressive 14th outright.

After securing a ride on the Yamaha Factory Rally team, Faggotter placed 16th in 2018 when he was the only member of the team to complete the gruelling two-week event.

As a Factory Rally rider with high levels of mechanical skills, his job was to assist his teammates should they encounter a technical difficulty ‰ÛÒ of which there are many. But this year Rodney will not be tasked with helping others. Instead he is riding essentially as a privateer ‰ÛÒ with help from the Drag‰ÛªOn Rally team who will assist with servicing and spare parts.

‰ÛÏThis is the first time that I‰Ûªll be able to have a red hot go on a bike that is very close to factory spec,‰Û
