“I'm back to the malles moto”


After his good result in 2014, when he won the malles-moto class, Robert van Pelt did two Dakars with a team. First with Yamaha Netherlands for 2015, then with a Husqvarna FR 450, supported by the Dutch Husqvarna importer, in 2016. The original plan for 2017 was to go with the support of a service team again, but when his team mate dropped out it was too expensive for the student in business economics to run a team of his own. So Van Pelt junior (his dad is co-pilot in a car) decided to move back to the malles-moto. Even without assistance he keeps his goal to improve his best finish of 28th last year. But it will certainly not be easy.


“To me the Dakar is a way of discovering my own limits, and coping with the unexpected. It's different every day. Participating in the malles-moto certainly isn't the easiest way to do the Dakar, but I'm looking forward to it. I won the class in 2014, and now I'm back but on a really good bike. Hopefully that helps me to have less work at night and get some sleep. The competition is fierce, also in the malles-moto. Compatriot Jurgen van den Goorbergh will be the man to beat. Still, despite having no assistance, I hope to finish well. Top 20 is my goal, but 23rd is fine as well. That was the best result of my dad when he was still competing on a bike.”
