Interview

“The new roadbook will make the difference”

The Dakar has given Jacopo Cerutti great satisfaction starting with the amazing 12th place overall on his debut back in 2016. Multiple Italian Motorally Champion with a solid career in the Enduro, at only 26 years of age, Jacopo made a major change in his motorbike career, deciding to switch from Enduro to rally-raid. Full time rider supported by Husqvarna Italy, Jacopo made his debut on the Dakar 2016 finishing 12th overall. Since then, Cerutti is completely focused on the Dakar. In 2017 he experienced a bad crash and had to retire, but in 2018 he could experience again the incredible feeling of crossing the finish line of the toughest rally in the world (P20). Last year he was solid in the Top 20 when he crashed. The target this year is clear: finishing in the Top 20. As last year, he will be at the start with the Solarys Husqvarna Team from Castiglion Fiorentino, home town of Italian Dakar legend Fabrizio Meoni. Jacopo will share this incredible adventure with team mate and friend Maurizio Gerini.

“I’m really excited by the new marked roadbook that will be introduced on the Dakar this year. I had the chance to use it in occasion of the Morocco Rally in October. It was introduced for a test and I really liked it because there were quiet a re-shuffle of the classification on those stages. This means that also a private rider can make the difference on those stages. I did a good preparation this year. I arrived 2nd at the Pan Africa Rally and 16th overall in the Morocco Rally, that lined up all the strongest riders of the Dakar. As for the 2020 edition, I expect a tough rally with very long and navigated stages. My target is to finish in the Top20, I know I have the pace.”
