Congratulations Toby Price , first Australian winner EVER of the Dakar rally.
“I don’t know what to say, I don’t know what to think… I’m in shock, I never would’ve thought I could win this race in my second participation.
“This is incredible for my family, my friends and my fans back in Australia!
“Finishing the rally is already a triumph. Winning it is amazing! I tackled the race in true Aussie style.
“I attacked when I had to, when the time was right, and I kept an eye on my bike during the all-important marathon stages.
“I also navigated rather well. I hope this is just the start, to win again. It won’t be easy, so I’ve got to savour this victory.”
