Luc van de Huijgevoort has been interested in anything related to motorsports since he was a boy, but from the moment he got his motorbike license he focussed on riding off-road himself. Like for so many the Dakar is on the bucketlist of Van de Huijgevoort for a long time already. The owner of a few supermarkets in the south of the Netherlands is well prepared to make his debut in the Dakar, supported by the experienced team BAS Dakar.
L.V.D.H.: “Both in my private life as in business it is possible now to enter the Dakar, so I’d be a fool if I wouldn’t. In November 2016 we made the decision to go for this year’s edition and we started the preparations, together with Bart van der Velden of BAS Dakar. I spoke to many riders who did the Dakar before and they thought me some of the tips and tricks, but I realize that in the end it comes down to myself. Whatever people tell you, reality is always different. I’ve done everything I could in the preparation, now it’s up to me, my bike and the desert.”
