All three of our riders arrived at the finish, here are the highlights of this 2022 Dakar!

All three of our riders arrived at the finish, here are the highlights of this 2022 Dakar!

 

We want to honor our riders who gave everything they had until the very end. There were smiles and fatigue at the finish, but the feeling of having completed a great Dakar and of having taken the brand new 450 SEF Rally to the finish was outstanding.
 

After two weeks of racing and more than 8,000 kilometers covered, our 3 riders have reached Jeddah and the finish line of this 2022 Dakar. At the end of a final special where they once again had great performances (LS P9, RG P11, HN P23), Lorenzo Santolino finished in 11th place overall, close to a top 10 in which he remained for almost the entire race. Rui Goncalves finished 24th. Unluckily, our Portuguese rider encountered several minor technical problems, which caused him to lose a lot of time. This was disappointing when you see the excellent times, he was able to produce throughout this Dakar. Despite a solid race and following a technical incident Harith Noah ends up out of the standings, in the experience category.

This 2022 Dakar was punctuated by many strong moments. Rui Goncalves climbed on the podium of stage 4, while Lorenzo Santolino remained in the top 5 in the general classification until the start of the 2nd week. Embarking on the incessant yoyo of the specials, he ended up downgrading, but he left his mark on this edition alongside the big names in the discipline. It is obvious that he is a potential major contender. Harith Noah pushed and learned every step of the way. He paid attention to instructions and became consistent. He was approaching the top 20, until his retirement on stage 10. This was a major test run for the new 450 SEF Rally, which will have made its debut in the sands of the Sahara. The valuable feedback from the riders allowed the whole team to work hard during these 15 days to continue development and bring all the machines to the finish.
 

We will have the opportunity to meet the Sherco Factory Rally team throughout this season with Lorenzo Santolino still riding the 450 SEF Rally in the other events of the new FIM World Rally Championship.

Bisha-Bisha: the penultimate before Jeddah!

Bisha-Bisha: the penultimate before Jeddah!

 

A stage that was dreaded by all the riders because it was announced that it was a particularly difficult one on the eve of the arrival in Jeddah. A stage which kept its promises that had complex navigation in the middle of the dunes and at the bottom of the many valleys, demanding terrain with camel grass and riverbeds which challenged the progress of our riders.
 

Lorenzo Santolino started 5th this morning and had the heavy task of sharing the opening of the track with the leading car. Confirmed as difficult, the day’s navigation forced him to give up a few minutes on his competitors. He was 17th tonight and 12th overall.

Rui Goncalves had a complicated day. He was the victim of a technical problem at the 80 km mark which forced him to slow down, he managed to finish the special. He is now in 25th place in the general classification, he will give everything tomorrow in the last 164 km special of this 2022 Dakar.

Having gone further this morning, Harith Noah took advantage of the opportunity and completed a fine special. He climbed back up in the general classification despite the difficulties of the terrain and the pitfalls of navigation and ended up in 18th position at the finish. An excellent performance for our Indian rider who won’t give up until the finish line. Well done, Harit.
 

The second week of racing is coming to an end, one which will have put our riders and the whole team to the test. The team worked every evening to adjust, adjust, and improve the new machines and allow our 3 riders to reach the finish line in Jeddah tomorrow!

Stage ten was for tenacity. Lorenzo Santolino finished in 4th place and Rui finished in the Top 10!

Back to the forefront for our riders! They were on the attack today and put the knife between their teeth on a 375 km special between Wadi Ad Dawasir and Bisha which was 66% sand. Lorenzo Santolino and Rui Goncalves both put in an excellent performance, and they both gained a few places in the overall standings.
 

Lorenzo Santolino finished 4th for the stage, he arrived happy at the bivouac this evening. A few modifications were made to his 450 SEF Rally which enabled him to return to his best performance level today. He was the author of some excellent race management during the entire race. He was able to make up some of the time he lost in recent days and returned to 11th place overall.

Rui Goncalves also had a solid day. He grabbed a top 10 spot with a nice 8th place finish. It was a particularly satisfactory result when we know that the leading car has now embarked on the final sprint. Rui was especially at ease in the technical portions, he made the most of his new machine, which is more maneuverable and responsive in this type of terrain. He is now in 24th place in the general classification.

Harith Noah was forced to retire today due to a technical problem. It was a disappointment for him as he was knocking on the door of the top 20. Despite everything, he will set off again tomorrow to continue to garner kilometers and experience at the controls of his 450 SEF Rally on the last 2 stages of this 2022 Dakar.

The heat has returned, but the team achieved some great results today. It was another long and demanding stage, one in which our riders have given their all. The finish is now in sight, but the organizers announced that the special tomorrow is a very big one where anything can happen.
