“I am going to try to do better than my fourth place”

December 2017 was a turning point in the life of Chilean rider José Ignacio Cornejo Florimo. He had decided to quit the Dakar for financial reasons, but just a few days before the start in Lima, he received a call from Honda to join the factory team to replace the injured Paulo Goncalves. Up until then, his only participation was in the 2016 Dakar, in which he dropped out on stage five. “Nacho” made the most of this exceptional opportunity to finish 10th thanks to an impeccable showing. On the 2019 Dakar, he worked hard to improve that result and finished a very respectable 8th place. Now confirmed in his position as a factory rider for the Monster Energy Honda Team, "Nacho" rode a fantastic Dakar in 2020. He won two stages, the last one in a tight three-rider battle with Matthias Walkner and Luciano Benavides. Welcomed as a hero in Chile, the Iquiqueño also showed his solidarity during the pandemic by making a large delivery of protective goggles for health workers in the Tarapacá region. 2016 FIM Junior Champion “Nacho” Cornejo, arrives in Saudi Arabia to race in his fifth Dakar, determined to fight for a podium result and to continue his surprising ascension in the category.

J.IC.F.: “The Dakar last year was very positive for me: my team-mate Ricky Brabec won and I was able to take 2 stages in addition to 4th place. It's an extremely important result and also a great motivation for the next edition. I have always felt really good on the bike.
In 2020, I was able to train more or less as usual and without too many restrictions until the end of April. From May to September we were almost unemployed because of the health situation in Iquique. This meant that I arrived with far fewer kilometres on my bike than in a regular season. I did some private rides in Iquique and then we were able to organise test sessions with the team both in the US and Spain. I also took part in the Andalucía Rally where I was able to get back on the tracks, not with the expected result, but finally with some actual racing. The objective for 2021? I'm going there with the idea of improving this 4th place and I'm ready to do my best.”

Cornejo out!

A rattled Nacho Cornejo has undergone a medical examination after soldiering on to the finish following his crash at km 252. The Chilean, who started today's stage in the overall lead, has been left with no choice but to withdraw from the race and leave his teammates Ricky Brabec and Kevin Benavides to duke it out for the win.

Cornejo reaches the finish

Nacho Cornejo has just reached the finishing line on the day’s special. The Chilean is unlikely to win, because his team-mate Kevin Benavides boasted a lead of more than two minutes over him at the last time check point. Also, the result will have to take account of the time retrieved by Ricky Brabec and Sam Sunderland in order to ascertain the outcome of this...

After 198 km, Nacho Carnejo still holds a lead of a little less than a minute over Kevin Benavides. Luciano Benavides, trailing Cornejo by 4’31 is for the moment out of reach of Adrien van Beveren, who is more than seven minutes behind the stage leader.
