Interview

”Getting on the bike every morning is my motivation”

In 2015, a young gun from down under made quite a splash. Toby Price had made a name for himself back home in Australia, but was still an unknown in international rally-raid circles. It didn’t take long for him to master navigating in South America as he rode to an impressive third place in his Dakar debut. A year later, he was a member of the factory KTM team and became the first Australian to win the Dakar, in just his second participation. The logical favourite in 2017, Price broke his leg on stage four. The healing process was slow and he headed to the start of his fourth Dakar with little preparation and having not competed in a single race since the crash. In these conditions, his third place result last year was an exploit. The months of suffering are now behind him and at the age of 31, he is once again a contender for the win, which would fit nicely with his first FIM world title and his victory on the Morocco Rally. And do not be surprised to see Price one day do the Dakar in a car. This year, this fan of modified pick-ups undertook a historic double in the Finke Desert Race in Australia, in winning the bike category for the sixth time before having to retire in his trophy truck. In November, he tried his luck on the world famous Baja 1000, sharing a car with Bryce Menzies. And even if the Aussie hit a spectator vehicle, the duo still finished in fifth place.

‘‘I was really happy to finish to the Dakar last year and really didn’t expect to finish third after my injury. This season has been incredible. It was particularly hard and I didn’t believe I would win the world championship. I was quite unlucky early in the season, especially in Abu Dhabi, but I went on to finish on the podium in all the other races. To win the world title and the Morocco Rally makes everything sweeter. My biggest motivation is simply to get on the bike every morning. I love to ride even if it is the toughest rally in the world. The fact that the Dakar will be run in just one country will make things different but we are delighted. The conditions will be complicated. The goal is to run up front ad win my second title.”
