“The hardest thing that I ever did”

Jack Lundin’s journey to the Dakar rally actually started as soon as the early 2000s. At the time, the young Canadian boy was following with passion the exploits of his dad Lukas who managed to finish the event twice in four attempts (43rd in 2000 and 35th in 2002). Jack was only 11 when his father battled it out on the tracks of Africa but already his dream was to participate himself. Years went by and from motocross, he turned to desert racing, even working for the Baja 1000 when he was only 13. His first appearance on the Dakar came in 2018. At the time he was working for the family gold mining company in Ecuador so the trip to Peru wasn’t a long one. He managed to finish the event in 77th position. Two years later, he had the clear ambition to return to the race and discover Saudi Arabia. Sadly a crash during the Merzouga Rally and a broken femur and arm forced him to postpone his quest to discover a new territory. Based in Guatemala for professional reasons, he is now fit enough to return to the rally of his dreams. After competing in the Baja 250 and Baja 1000, Lundin will be part of the HT Rally Raid Husqvarna Racing team and his goal remains to finish, hopefully doing better than his first attempt.

“We are three boys in the family and when we were kids we all rode bikes from an early age. My dad took part in the Dakar and I remember being fascinated by his rallies. Despite seing him injured, I thought it was the adventure of a lifetime. I would have done the Dakar a long time ago but I was young and I had to get on with normal life. The first Dakar I competed in was the last one that went to several countries (Peru, Bolivia and Argentina). It was the adventure of a lifetime. Mentally and physically, it was the hardest thing that I ever did. I was mentally ready but as a rookie there were a lot of things that I had to understand. I return because I want to discover Saudi Arabia. It’s very intriguing. I like the adventure, the high speeds and meeting people. I’m very busy at work so doing the Dakar is a way of clearing my mind. My ambition remains the same: to finish, but I want to try and do better every day and eventually get a better result than my last one.”
