Mirko Pavan is a very well known face in the Italian Motorally. Multiple champion on a national level, Mirko has also impressed in several international rallies he took part to. The Dakar Rally has always been his dream. In 2017 he started to train for the Dakar Rally but a crash during the Panafrica Rally, resulted in a broken collarbone, forced him to miss the 2018 edition. This year he is back to the starting blocks, aiming to do his best possible result.
“I want to race the Dakar because it is the maximum aspiration for a rally rider. During all these years of competitions I have had many strong and experienced adversaries who have become friends over time. Their stories about the Dakar rally, the good and bad side of the race have always fascinated and motivated me. It’s also thanks to their stories that I have decided to finally enroll. I had a bit of a taste of the Dakar every time I raced in Africa. Rallies like the Merzouga Rally, the Tuareg Rallye, the X Rally of Marrakech and the Transanatolia in Turkey prepared me to make the big jump. If I will take part to this race, it will be thanks to the NSM racing team, to Mirco Miotto for the commitment that has put in organizing the initiatives to raise funds, to the sponsors who have been supporting me since my ﬁrst race, to the Motoclub Razza Piave and to my family”.
