Interview

“My goal is the Top 3”

The long era of the Dakar in South America made some fans of the sports authentic “Dakarians”. One such example is Nelson Sanabria, the “Guarani Lion”, who is proud of his six finishes in as many participations. His discipline and desire to continually improve has led him to train up to 12 hours a day at a circuit 70 km from Asunción. With a new quad in Yamaha Paraguay colors and the assistance of the Drag’on Rally Team, Nelson heads to Saudi Arabia with the firm intention of finishing on the podium.

N.A.S.G: “During the last Dakar, I had to admit that I had to run in “survival mode”, because I had several mechanical problems. The rally is changing and you have to adapt. This adaptation is what allows us to finish. I have six straight Dakar finishes and six medals. What am I lacking to be able to fight up front? The ability to bring all the elements together; a still new quad, the discipline and intensity of my training regiment and luck. Sport offers opportunities for revenge and I am going to Saudi Arabia with this state of mind. I train with my quad and enduro bike in the extreme heat of Paraguay. My day begins at 7am and I climb off the bike at 7pm. I also run and Mountain Bike. I bring my know-how and the wisdom of what I’ve learned in each Dakar. As for the 2020 Dakar, I only know that there will be a lot of sand and desert. My goal is to be in the top 3 and that's why I work every day to be better.”

Sanabria battles on

Nelson Sanabria has been very consistent since his debut on the Dakar with six finishes in six participations, and is continuing to battle on this year despite several difficulties. Stage 10 is no different, because the Paraguayan has lost more than 23 minutes after 174 km due to problems with his fuel pump.
