“I just need to take care of my bike!”
Alberto Bertoldi, a familiar face in the Italian Motorally and in International rallies in Europe and Northern Africa, is back on the Dakar. Experienced mechanic, specialized in selling and preparing racing bikes, the Italian has chosen the KTM factory 450 Rally to compete the 2020 Dakar Rally. “This is the bike the KTM factory riders developed and competed in 2018 and 2019. This is the most reliable bike, perfect to race in the Original by Motul category”. This year edition has a special fascination as it will be the start of a new era, the third chapter of the Dakar history after Africa and South America and Bertoldi couldn’t miss the opportunity.
“As a mechanic and a motorcycles dealer, I have always loved to do rallies and the Dakar is the queen of the rallies. I did my first Dakar in 2018 with my own team, BMS Moto and two dear friends: Alessandro Botturi and Livio Metelli. It was a great experience and a great effort in terms of logistics organization and budget. I was doing great till the engine of my bike stopped on stage 10. I tried to repair the bike, but in vain. I had to withdraw. This year I am back, but I have chosen to compete in the Original by Motul category. It makes things easier. I know the mechanics well so this is not an issue for me and the logistics is simple: I just need to take care of my bike! I’m preparing my KTM in my workshop. Once it is ready and shipped. I don’t need to worry anymore till I jump on the bike. This year will be a special edition as we will discover a new country. I really look forward to it”.
