Interview

“My age gave me notoriety”

There’s no age to fulfil a dream. At 60, Lincoln Berrocal lived his first Dakar after years of riding on all types of terrain. He first hopped on 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 in Africa at the Merzouga Rally. The Brazilian who was the oldest of the bike race last year struggled to make it to day 8 but was eventually forced to quit with two days to go after missing out on too many waypoints. The jeweller from Curitiba returns on a KTM 450 RR with that same will to reach the finish, only this time he won’t be the oldest, Wessel Bosman beating him by just a few months.

“I began riding bikes in 1972 when I was only 14 and started to compete in 1979. 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. Few people of sixty take part in the Dakar. It’s not just a question of registering and taking part. You have to prove that you’re good enough. Just few riders of 60 manage to do so. My age actually gave me quite some notoriety. I was able to make many friends and inspire people. The biking world is fantastic. We’re all friends. I met people from around the world and that’s impressive. It really brings you a lot.”
