Posted on November 20, 2023
Red Bull KTM Factory Racing returns with Kevin Benavides, aiming to maintain their winning streak after his victory at the 2023 Dakar Rally. Joining him are fellow KTM teammates Toby Price, the runner-up at the last Dakar, and Matthias Walkner, all determined to conquer the Middle Eastern terrain.
Luciano Benavides, the 2023 FIM World Rally-Raid Championship winner, will compete on a Husqvarna bike alongside his older brother Kevin. Despite a challenging season, Red Bull GASGAS Factory Racing's Sam Sunderland and Daniel Sanders remain formidable contenders, capable of surprising the competition.
Kevin Benavides: "I'm working hard in the weeks before this next Dakar to make sure I'm physically 100% for the rally."
Sam Sunderland: "My year hasn't been the best, and I'm looking to turn that around and get things working in the right direction towards the Dakar."
Kevin Benavides: “I’ve been recovering from my injury and getting back on the bike. I’m working hard in the weeks before this next Dakar to make sure I’m physically 100% for the rally.”
Toby Price: “I’m definitely excited to race another Dakar with Red Bull KTM Factory Racing. I’ve been racing for KTM for 15 years now and for the factory since 2015, so it feels great to be able to race the biggest, toughest rally for them once again.”
Sam Sunderland: “My year hasn’t been the best and I’m looking to turn that around and get things working in the right direction towards the Dakar.”
