Interview

“My van is my home for the preparation”

Like in his previous Dakars, in 2015, 2018 and 2019, Guillaume Martens enters the rally in the Original by Motul class: without any assistance. Martens’ preparations for the Dakar 2020 were brutally disturbed by the theft of his van, including riding gear and documents like driver’s license.

“For me there’s only one way to do the Dakar: on your own, without support. That’s the real adventure and that is what attracts me. My van was stolen in the worst imaginable moment. It would have been my and my motorbikes’ home for three months. Yes, this is where I sleep for the preparation of the Dakar. It was stolen the day before I was supposed to start my first training in Belgium. I had to go back to Switzerland, where I have lived for 25 years, to get a new driver’s license and other important documents.”
