“Now is my time to do it”


Like father like son. Back in 2004, Fernando Sousa and his son Fernando Junior were introduced to motorbikes. From that time on, while the son was only 16 years of age, bikes have taken up a massive part of their lives. From enduro racing to the big one: the Dakar. In 2010, the father was the first to give it a go on the toughest of all rallies, sadly failing to finish. Seven years later, it'll be Fernando Junior's turn to try his luck on the Dakar. His dad, of course won't be far away, waiting at the bivouac with mother. After finishing the Merzouga Rally in 49th spot, Sousa, a sports enthusiast, has only one goal: to finish the Dakar on his KTM, and avenge his dad.


“Me and my father started riding motorbikes together in 2004 and we started doing races very early. Our first national race was the Baja Portalegre and then we competed in the Enduro and off road National Championships. My father who did the Dakar Rally in 2010 said to me that he wanted to see me doing it as well. So now is my time to do it, thanks to him and my mother. He will be following all the race with my mum. My father likes this sport more than I do. He inspires me a lot because we always ride together. I have to follow him everywhere. He has a huge influence on my career. This year I tried to do as many hours on a motorbike as I could. So I did the National Enduro Championship and Extreme enduro races to test my mental capacity in very hard conditions. My ambition is to finish the Dakar Rally and, if possible, inside the Top 30. One word to describe the Dakar: dream… »
