There’s no age to fulfil a dream. At 59, Lincoln Berrocal will be living his first Dakar after years of riding his bike on all types of terrain. The Brazilian will be part of the X-Raids team and has gathered enough experience to be among the lucky few allowed to take on the toughest of all rallies. He first rode a bike back in 1972 and since then has competed in races such as his very own Rally Dos Sertoes but also in Argentina at the Desafio Ruta 40 and Africa this year at the Merzouga Rally. The goal of this jewellery owner from Curitiba: to finish.
“I Began riding bikes in 1972 when I was only 14 and started to compete in 1979. compete. My project to do Dakar started thanks to my passion for this sport. It became a personal challenge, like a dream to fulfill. The dream of all off-road riders. My objective is to finish all stages without penalties and reach the finish in Lima. And my concern is heat, muscle fatigue and hydration issues. »
