Interview

“Rebuilded truck and an experienced team”

With his long time navigator and friend Edwin van de Langeberg and mechanic Bart Gloudemans Dutchman William de Groot is ready to give it another go at the Dakar. Although still bothered by a nasty shoulder injury he sustained in the Dakar 2020, international fruit trader De Groot has set his focus on improving the results of last year.

W.d.G.: “Last year’s Dakar had its ups and downs for us, but that is usual. I’m happy we made it to the finish this time, which is also the goal for the Dakar 2021. Our truck has been completely rebuilded and we have a new service truck, so from that side we are ready. The shoulder injury might still be a problem, but we are with an experienced team, so I think that all in all we have a strong package.”
