2019 DAKAR
The official line:
09:53 Australian Toby Price wins his second Dakar!
Has won the last stage of the Dakar 2019 and wins the world’s biggest rally-raid for the second time, following his triumph in 2016. It was a performance of genuine class from the KTM rider who left everyone in his wake in Lima, beating José Cornejo by 2’21 to crown 10 extremely difficult days for the Australian who rode throughout the race with an injury to his scaphoid bone, which occurred several weeks before the Dakar.

Recent TP DAKAR's by number...

2013 - broken neck while training with KC#66 :bow in Lucerne Valley CA, USA. Suspected quad/paraplegia circumvented with multiple surgeries to neck vertabrae (ti rods still in place)

DAKAR 2015 - rookie debut 3rd. (tied as only rookie to ever podium DAKAR - along with fellow Aussie - Andy Haydon KTM 1998).

DAKAR 2016 - 1st.

DAKAR 2017 - Broken femur - crashed while in battle for the lead, during first week.

DAKAR 2018 - 3rd. (while recovered from 2017 season off - from femur injury - only two months short prep for DAKAR)

DAKAR 2019 - 1st (with broken scaphoid - only six weeks out from DAKAR)

Five DAKAR's... two thirds... two wins... a lot of pain and sacrifice... a lot of talent.
Olympic Athlete standard and up there with some mountaineering style epics for hardness factor.
