Interview

“Add one or two more Dakar titles to my record”

Toby Price will be a contender for several more years on the Dakar. Twice winner of the rally, the Australian has extended his contract with the Red Bull KTM team. While he is intrigued by the idea of racing in the car category, as his first victory on four wheels at the Finke Desert Race in Australia and another participation in the Baja 1000 demonstrate, Price hasn't abandoned his first love. When he signed his new contract, the objective was clear: add one or two titles to his record. And more importantly, to forget his last unfortunate Dakar, which ended in hospital in Tabuk after a violent crash on stage 9, when he was in second place overall. It took time for the Hilston, New South Wales native, to recover from his arm and shoulder injuries. Being consistent is a sign of excellence, but for Toby Price, only victory matters. In seven participations, the Australian has finished five times in the top three. In short, each time he makes it to the end, he strides onto the podium. In 2015, this young Australian with a rugby player physique arrived at the rally like a UFO. Toby Price was a household name down under but an unknown on the global scale of the Dakar. He was known to be fast and quickly learned the subtleties of navigation without ever breaking down on his way to an impressive third-place result. The following year, with the factory KTM team, Price more than confirmed this by becoming the first Australian in any category to win the Dakar, and this, in just his second participation. His second victory in Lima in 2019 is further proof of his courage in the face of suffering, this time with a bruised wrist. Medallist of the Australian Order of Merit, he will, once again, be a contender for victory in 2022, which would see him equal Richard Sainct as a three-time winner (1999, 2000 and 2003) and surpass Hubert Auriol, Gaston Rahier and Fabrizio Meoni.

“I am excited to have signed for another two years with the Red Bull-KTM team. It's a real family for me and a home away from home. So, I'm looking forward to another two years with the guys. I hope I can repay the trust they put in me by winning a few more titles. I don't think there is a team like KTM. They truly care about their riders. We are working on developing the new bike, and it is going very well. I seemed to have recovered from my injuries (on the 2021 Dakar). After three operations, I am in much better shape. I am at 60 or 70 per cent of my capacity, so I am not far from being ready to attack. The objective over the next two years is to add another Dakar title to my record. If I can add two, it would be even better”.
