Ricky Brabec

I hope I’m still one of the favourites for this edition of Dakar Rally! I face my fifth Dakar as if I was entering just another stage in 2019, but with both determination and speed. After all the work I have done from the last Dakar until now, not much has changed, so I’m going into this Dakar to add more fuel to the fire and show all the fans that I’m here for one thing only and that I have set my sights firmly on winning the rally.

Kevin Benavides

Everything is new in the 2020 Dakar Rally! Even the dunes and the sand are different to what we have ridden on in recent years. It will be something brand new for all the participants, which will make it more unexpected and more entertaining and I’m sure that we can expect a lot of surprises. But, for sure, we will miss South America. I’m very proud to form part of this great team. This year we are going to fight very hard to achieve our aim which has resisted us for so long and that we deserve.

Joan Barreda

The Dakar Rally is the main objective for the team and all the Monster Energy Honda Team riders will fight to bring the trophy home next year. Despite changing the continent, it will remain the most difficult race in the world. Being here, in Honda, with Marc Márquez, with Tim Gasjer, with Toni Bou… you realize what an honour it is to be part of this great family and to be able to represent Honda in the races.

José Ignacio Cornejo

Being part of Honda is an honour. Being with the best riders from other specialties makes you really realize that you are in a great structure. As far as our goal is concerned, it is clear that we will be fighting hard to try to bring home the best possible result from this next Dakar adventure.

Aaron Maré

I am excited and honoured to be part of the Monster Energy Honda racing team for the Dakar Rally. This is definitely a dream come true for me. I have worked hard to get here and I am extremely grateful for the opportunity. I hope the Dakar is successful for the team.
