I want to finish the championship and be at 100% for Dakar
Antonio Maio is one of the biggest stars on the Portuguese offroad scene, although things didn't go quite as he might have hoped on his Dakar debut last year. The 33-year-old was on the hunt for a top-20 finish when he was forced to pull out on stage eight (of ten) due to a mechanical problem. It was a major disappointment for the multiple Portuguese TT champion -who'd been dreaming of doing the Dakar for many years- but he returns in 2020 with renewed ambition. A six-time winner of Baja Portalegre, where he placed second this year, Antonio is still in the running to lift his national rally raid title in December. He’s determined to give his all in the remaining rounds before switching his focus fully to Dakar 2020, where he'll be looking to make it through to the finish line in Qiddiya.
“I’ll go into the last two races of the Portuguese rally raid season with the same approach as the first ones. I want to see out the whole championship. Clearly, with the Dakar being so close, we maybe can’t go quite as fast as we might like, I certainly don’t want to compromise my participation there. Above all, I want to finish the championship without any injury problems and be at 100% to face the Dakar.”
