Interview

“The last Dakar was like no other”

After two editions that both ended after only three days, Vladimir Vasilyev hit back in style for his 7th appearance. After becoming one of the rising figures of the rally capturing 5th place in 2015 and even clinching his first ever stage win that year, he flew to an excellent sixth spot last year with co-driver Dmitro Tsyro. Still part of the X-Raid squad, he’ll this time be joined by the former team mate of Denis Krotov: Latvia’s Oleg Uperenko. After a fairly intense season that saw him compete in the Russian cross-country championship and several Baja rallies, the 52-year-old returns to the Dakar with the desire to better his best performance which should be a rather tough task.

Vladimir Vasiliev: “I really enjoyed the last edition of the Dakar. Congratulations to the organisers who managed the impossible. I really liked competing in Saudi Arabia and there are so many possibilities to design courses here. Although on some stages it was mostly a question of luck due to the punctures. The last Dakar was like no other.”
