Interview

“Only the Dakar was missing”

Born in Conegliano Veneto in the province of Treviso, Elvis Borsoi has always had a great passion for challenges. His sporting career begins with participation in various Motocross races in which he immediately got excellent results. At the age of 19, Borsoi decided to swap on four wheels, but to stay on the same "road" and dedicate body and soul to off-road vehicles, achieving good performances in some local races and taking part in the FIF Gran Criterium Challenge. In 2006 he demonstrated his skills internationally, participating in the Berlin Breslau, the most well-known amateur race in Europe and in which he managed to finish seventh out of 224 entries. In 2010 and 2011, for two consecutive editions, won the title in the Italian Cross Country Trophy TH Csai Championship with the Mitsubishi Pajero DID. In 2017 he won first place in the Italian Cross Country Rally championship. He did the world championship Baja with a Mini and several rallies. This year he will make his debut on the Dakar on a SSV. He will share this adventure with Stefano Pelloni as co-driver. Stefano Pelloni has a long record of International Rallies on a bike, before switching to 4 wheels. Elvis lives between Italy and Germany where he owns several Italian restaurants and ice-cream shops. He is a cook and like to eat well. For this kind of race, in his luggage you will find: tasty Italian olive oil and sauces to make a good pasta or a risotto with Porcini mushrooms on the bivouac.

“I started to ride a bike and did the first races since I was young 14. I did all kind of races in off-road so only the Dakar was missing. So here I am. I decided to do it on an SSV because it’s a vehicle that doesn’t require a huge budget and It is easier to drive compared to a car. I think this vehicle is the future for many drivers who aim to approach the Dakar. My target is to finish the rally. I will share this adventure with Stefano Pelloni, who is great in navigation. We have done several Bajas and Rallies together and we are a good duo. I look forward to discover this race”.
