Interview

“I am in a positive mood”

Laisvydas Kancius made an impressive Dakar debut in 2021 with a 7th place finish in the quad class. Falling head over heels in love with the event, the Lithuanian was back in 2022 and determined to improve on the previous year finished the second stage in the overall lead. Unfortunately, the very next day he ran into technical problems that eventually saw him forced to retire from the event on stage 6 with broken front suspension. He didn’t have a clear run on the 2022 Rallye du Maroc either but nevertheless was delighted to finish on the podium of a W2RC race. For the Dakar 23 Laisvydas is clearly aiming to at least replicate that achievement and to maximise his chances his Czech Republic team Story Racing S.R.O. have built him a brand-new Yamaha Raptor 700.

“I was really happy with how the Rallye du Maroc went. We had a great overall result which was a huge achievement for me. Now, going into the Dakar, there is excitement and stress, but I am in a positive mood. I’ve worked hard during training and the new quad is looking good. I am keen to test my strength and experience the atmosphere of the rally and the adrenaline flooding through my body. It is a unique feeling.”
