Adrien van Beveren: “Returning to Merzouga, is a no-brainer”

After finishing sixth on the Dakar in his first participation, followed by a third consecutive triumph on the Touquet Enduropale, Adrien van Beveren is now among the most prominent riders in rally-raid. For the native of northern France it all began last year on the Merzouga Rally where he got his first taste of the discipline, with sixth place overall, and victory on the final stage. This coming May 21-27, he will return to Morocco as a favourite for the win alongside his Yamaha team mates Helder Rodrigues and the 2015 Merzouga Rally victor, Alessandro Botturi. However, among the 40 riders already entered on the Dakar Series round run by Marc Coma (65 total, with the quads and SSVs), Van Beveren will also have to battle with this year’s Dakar runner-up, Slovakia’s Stefan Svitko.
