Interview

“Back to finish the Dakar”

Class 1976, Matteo Olivetto, a fireman in Padova, Italy, will be at the starting blocks of Dakar 2020 to finish the adventure that was kept on hold in Argentina. But as the first time. Matteo won’t race only for himself. “Behind me I have my community: my colleagues of the fire brigade, the citizens of Battaglia Terme, my home town. I have always had this incredible support. This second time even stronger. They support me. They resonate with me as they see in me the bravery to face the toughest rally in the world. It’s incredible the number of articles the local newspapers wrote on this Dakar adventure”. Olivetto’s colleagues of the fire-brigade have organized several dinners to raise money to support the important budget that is necessary for the race. As the first time, Olivetto will race in the Original by Motul category, the category of the origins where the riders compete without the assistance of a team for the mechanics of the bike. He will compete on a KTM EXC 450, the enduro version.

«I did my first Dakar in 2017 to celebrate my 40th birthday. I enjoyed every minute of it. The long stages in the middle of nowhere, the “camaraderie” among the competitors, the friendly atmosphere of the bivouac, the incredible warm welcome of the local population. I was doing an intelligent race, when the engine stop on stage 10. I tried to repair the bike, but in vain. I waited the whole night in the desert till the balai truck came 11 am the following day to collect me and the bike. This year I’m back for another adventure in a country that has been closed to tourism for a long time. It will be a great challenge».
