Interview

“I want to be broken and see what I have in me”

The routine of normal life is one of the reasons Trevor Wilson will be on the start line of the Dakar. A school teacher in Brisbane, the Australian decided he needed to challenge himself and what better than the race of his dreams to find a new boost in life. His life has dramatically changed and is now almost entirely turned around the Dakar. There’s the raising money part and the long and hard training sessions of course but also the talks he does in schools and prisons to share his story and inspire people to progress in life. A new journey starts for Trevor in the Original by Motul class: a voyage into the unknown to discover a “new version” of himself.

“I was cruising through life as a school teacher and asked myself what regrets I might have and that was the Dakar rally, a race I had always dreamt of. I told my friends about it and they laughed. I just wanted to see if I could to it. It took me 4 to 5 years to get to the Dakar. I had to change my life. I came to Peru in 2018 to learn the race and was inspired by my friend Scott Britnell’s journey in the Original by Motul class. I came back home “freaking out”. What have I gotten myself into? I then started saving money. I do a lot of talks in schools and prisons. We talk about their dreams and how to progress in life. I share my story, my purpose in life. People tell me it’s life changing. No other race can do that. My dream was to be on the start line and I have that picture in my mind. Now I have to see what’s within me. It’s completely unknown but of course the goal is finishing. Being in the Original by Motul class is the ultimate challenge. I want to be broken and see what I have in me. In the past I was underselling my potential. It’s a new version of me now. In the large open spaces, a part of me becomes alive.”
