“The dream of my whole life!”
Already involved in the Dakar as a sponsor for several riders in the past, Gaetano De Filippo has decided to go one step further and will be on the start line of the next edition on his bike. The 46-year-old will be part of the TM Racing team with Alessandro Zanotti. On a special 450cc designed for the Dakar, Gaetano who started riding bikes when he was fourteen just hopes to reach the finish with no main issues.
“I started riding bikes back in 1980. The Dakar has always been the dream of my whole life. I competed in the Baja World cup this year and have already experienced races like the Pharaoh's Rally in Egypt. My only hope is to reach the finish line, if possible without crashing or injuring.”
