Interview

“We are a good pair, this bike and me”

Ever since her first entry in 2006 Mirjam Pol has been connected to the Dakar. When she was not riding herself, she was assistant team manager in the HT Rally Raid team, helping out other riders. When she decided to come back as a rider for the Dakar 2018 she quit her job to be able to fully concentrate on competing again. It wasn’t an easy ride as Pol not only broke her wrist halfway through the rally but also hurt her back and neck in a crash on the penultimate day. She managed to fight her way to the finish, but spend a lot of time recovering from her injuries afterwards.

M.P.: “Being a professional motorbike rider isn’t as easy as people might think. It’s not just fun and ride a bike. All year long I am busy training, but also working to get sponsors, being at events for promotion and tell my Dakar story as a motivational speaker for business clubs, companies and other organisations. Because of the injuries I wasn’t able to train and ride as much as I would have wanted, but I got help by the bike. This year’s Husqvarna is much lighter and easier to handle, which makes it less of a struggle to control it. Last year’s bike wasn’t my favourite but I had to deal with it as I prefer to choose for a team and not for a certain bike. Having a good team around is much more important in my opinion as it is the team that takes care of both the rider and the bike. I’m very happy with it, as I am with the new bike. We are a good pair, this bike and me. ”
