“Helping out others in the Dakar is the motivation for us”

Ed Wigman is a multi-talent. In daily life he builds rail roads, but his passion is off roads. In rally raids he has been mechanic, navigator, driver in both cars and trucks and when he has the chance he also likes to ride a motorbike or even a sidecar. In this Dakar once again he is doing what he likes best: helping out as many competitors as possible, but only when possible, as his main target is to help Gert Huzink, captain of the Riwald Dakar team. Wigman teams up again with experienced navigator Joël Ebbers, who has been keeping his skills up to date in several rallies on and off track and mechanic Dirk Schatorie. New in the team is the truck: the MAN with which Hans Stacey won the 2007 Dakar, the last one on African soil.

Ed Wigman: “If I could help everybody, I would. Competing as fast assistance is so much fun and so rewarding. Helping out others in the Dakar is the motivation for us. It’s the biggest adventure of all as it is all about finding solutions in complicated and sometimes impossible situations. Driving in the far back of the field is much more difficult than driving further up to the front. That’s why we have a new truck. The Ginaf we used to drive for several years was getting too slow and we had to deal with too many problems, so it is retired now. The MAN we have now is not brand new either, but it was designed as a race truck and therefore much easier to drive in the desert, so can be faster assistance now than we were before. I truly hope we can keep up with the pace better now and thus stay closer to the other competitors.”
