Maximum support for the Minis
After Carlos Sainz's triumph at Dakar 2020, the X-Raid Mini JCW team will be looking to make it back-to-back wins in the cars class. They will therefore need a reliable fast assistance team keeping an eye on their top contenders Sainz and Stéphane Peterhansel, who is chasing a 14th Dakar victory and an 8th on four wheels. Michael Baumann, Philipp Beier and Rafael Tibau all have previous experience on the world's toughest rally, and they will be doing their best to keep two of the rally's big guns out of trouble. Rafael is a former bike trials world champion and the son of Spanish legend Rafael Tibau Maynou, who will be taking part in his 30th Dakar this year on the Bahrain Raid Xtreme assistance truck. The X-Raid team are running a total of 6 Minis at Dakar 2021, with Orlando Terranova, Vladimir Vasilyev, Victor Khoroshavsev and Guilherme Spinelli also on the hunt for glory, and the Germany-based outfit have also provided vehicles for Vaidotas Zala and Denis Krotov. Suffice it to say the crew of MAN truck #546 will be kept extremely busy over the next few weeks!
