First Dakar for Alrubaian
The Bas Dakar team has always been a very cosmopolitan one. This year, alongside Dutch and South African riders will be Ibrahim Alrubaian, a biker from Kuweit. The 36-year-old will be experiencing his very first Dakar on a KTM 450 RR and could be one of the good surprises of the event. At the last Merzouga Rally, on Moroccan soil, he indeed managed to capture a promising 22nd position. His training in the dunes of Koweit could come in handy for the sand portions in Bolivia and Argentina.
