Interview

“Navigation will be the key”

The arrival of José Ignacio Cornejo Florimo among the Dakar elite was in nothing less than exceptional. In 2018, he decided not to participate due to financial considerations, but just a few days prior to the start in Lima, he received a call from Team Honda asking him to join the squad to replace the injured Paulo Goncalves. “Nacho” immediately understood what a great opportunity it was for him and he finished 10th after an impeccable rally. During the last edition, he worked to improve his position and finished 8th. In this context, the factory Honda rider and 2016 FIM World Junior Champion and second this season comes to Saudi Arabia to continue his ascending career.

J.I.C.F: “I was happy with the last edition. I rode some very good stages and finished in the top 10 again, improving my previous best, which proves that I am learning. The Morocco Rally also confirmed my speed, but I could have gotten a better result if I hadn’t made mistakes that cost me a lot of time. Anyway, I feel good on the bike heading to the Dakar. Saudi Arabia will be a difficult Dakar. Some days, we will only receive the road book just before the start. We will not be able to make any notes or study it before. It will be very interesting, because it is a new country for everyone. Navigation will be the key and the days will be very long. It will take a very complete rider to deal with all of it. When a rally is very technical, we are very focused. When it is very flat, very fast and the road book has very few notes, it is easier to lose concentration. My objective is to improve upon my 8th place in the last Dakar.”

"It was a long stage, but it was super fast"

The Chilean biker was still unaware of the death of his former teammate Paulo Gonçalves when he was interviewed at the end of the special.

"It was a long stage, but it was super fast. We went full gas all the way, with some dune crossings. There won't be big differences among the guys in front. It was fun, the navigation was easy."

A new role for Cornejo

Jose Ignacio Cornejo is the first bike to start the special and will open the way today, a tricky role that he has never had to undertake on the Dakar and which comes up on an edition where navigation is particularly difficult.
