“Going for overall victory!”

Seeing Sebastian Husseini on the start line of a Dakar only seemed natural. It was bound to happen. Based in Dubai, the Dutchman grew up in the desert and has been riding quads for as long as he can remember. Everything lined up perfectly for the 2007 quad cross-country World champion to give it a go on the toughest of all rallies. A very convincing 6th position overall added to a stage win has made “Seb” even more ambitious. On an improved Honda TRX 700 that is heavier than his competitors' quads but faster on rocky terrain, his target is overall victory.

“I've been dreaming of the Dakar ever since I was a little boy. I grew up in the desert and have been riding quads on a weekly basis. It was only natural to compete. My first Dakar was a life changing experience. The adrenalin hype during two weeks is incredible. You do it once and you're hooked. I found it tough in a different way than I was expecting. It's mentally challenging. I certainly gained a lot of experience. I didn't quite know where to position myself. I didn't expect to be as quick, if not quicker than the others. I had one mechanical issue (engine) and that cost me a Top 5 finishing spot. For this Dakar, I'm going for overall victory. That's the target. It's not impossible. I need to pace myself a little more and not go for stage wins. That's when you damage your machine”.
