Ivo Kastan: « The smallest motorcycle on the Dakar »

This guy has experience ... Ivo Kastan sets of this year on the quest of his 9th Dakar. But for this rally regular, the 2009 edition will have a particular savour. Because Ivo isn't going to South America to just put in a good result, but rather create an exploit: "to become the first rider to finish the Dakar on a 125cc motorcycle." In order to ride to the finish in these conditions, on "the smallest motorcycle on the Dakar ", the Czech will be able to rely on his solid experience.

In eight attempts, he has finished five times, taking a gratifying 27th place result on his second Dakar in 1997. In 1998, 2000 and 2004, Ivo was forced to retire. Triumph, Honda and Suzuki, none of these bikes brought any good fortune. Bad luck also struck in 2002 and 2003 when, with an injured knee, he followed the Dakar ... in a press vehicle.

This year, for his 9th participation, he wants to continue on without any sentiment of lassitude: "I will participate as long as my body can stand it." Above all else, he is impatient to return the atmosphere in the bivouac he likes so much. "It is a fantastic moment, which is unlike anything else this, which is the moment I prefer the most! "And each night his wife, a journalist who will follow the Dakar in a press vehicle, will be waiting for him at the bivouac.

abroad, a forum and found the past

Monkey Bike in the Dakar

-------------------------------- ------------------------------------------------

Anyone else just spat their coffee all over the table.

Theirs Dakar Racers then theirs nutters riding Monkey bikes in the Dakar.!!

you must have seen the guy picking it up off the floor, cannot find any pics yet but it was something like number 195 or summit like, Didint even look like it had enough tank range to get halfway through a stage.

Bit like a KTM Adventure then!
