Interview

“The goal: to be the first Bahraini to finish the Dakar”

The 2020 Dakar was an edition of many grandes premieres: the first time the race was held on the Asian continent (after Africa and South America) and also the first time a competitor from Bahrain took part in the rally. Salman Mohammed Farhan was indeed a pioneer when he took off on his Husqvarna 450 Rally bike, proudly lifting his national flag on the start podium in Jeddah. Sadly, the adventure of the 33-year-old who in his everyday life works for his ministry of interior ended after only 5 stages. His career started on the motocross tracks of the Gulf region before he decided to switch to off-road rallies. For his second attempt, Farhan will again be riding for the HT Rally raid Husqvarna racing team but this time he hopes to raise his Bahrain flag on the finish podium.

MF: “Participating in the Dakar Rally was a dream that I was pursuing, and I finally decided to participate when I got the sponsors to help me live my dream. My first Dakar was very difficult and tiring, but it was a real pleasure. I’ve always had a great passion for motorcycle sports and the Dakar was the most beautiful achievement I strived to attain. The goal now: reaching the finish line and raising my country's flag there by being the first Bahraini person to participate and finish in this rally”
