Broadlink KTM Ready For 2014 Dakar Rally
Broadlink KTM’s Riaan van Niekerk – 13th in the 2013 Dakar Rally – has put the finishing touches to his assault on the race next January.
Together with teammate Darryl Curtis, Riaan van Niekerk has just returned from Swakopmund in Namibia, where they spent a week in the dunes fine-tuning navigation skills and techniques in the
This will be Van Niekerk’s second Dakar Rally and it will take a lot to equal his outstanding debut result of 13th overall. Riaan also won the rookie class and the Elf Trophy.
Unfortunately Darryl Curtis has still not recovered fully from his crash at the 2013 Dakar where he broke his back and tore muscles in his shoulder on stage 12 of the race. Instead Darryl will take up the role of Team manager of the Broadlink KTM team.
The team leave Oliver Tambo for Buenos Aires on the 29th December, where they will collect all their equipment and the bikes before heading off to the 5th of January start in Rozario, Argentina.
