The other riders for Sherco-TVS are Aravind KP, Adrien Metge and Juan Pedrero Garcia – all of whom competed in last year’s Dakar rally.

The Merzouga Rally, which is also a Dakar Challenge event, is a six-day rally. This is the eighth edition of the rally, and it will be held from May 7-12. The rally is a great way to prepare participants for the difficult conditions and the level of competition that they’d face at the Dakar Rally.
