SIMON MARCIC @ DAKAR RALLY 2023
The Dakar Rally has been the world's toughest off-road event since 1979. Over 100 motorcycle participants swing into their saddle to conquer the desert. The kick-off for the Dakar Rally 2023 will be given on December 31, with a prologue and 14 stages, as well as over 5,000 kilometers of extreme racing on the agenda this time.
Just before the new year on 31.12.2022 O’NEAL team rider Simon Marcic will start his 9th Dakar Rally. This is Simon’s 8th consecutive participation in the toughest moto category, called "ORIGINAL". Original is the category without any allowed help. (no mechanic)
Simon spent the last two months in the Dubai desert to prepare for the race and to improve his best result which is 5th place in Original category from Dakar 2021.
“I am very happy and fortunate to have such support from O’NEAL since 2017. We develop and modify the equipment together and that is the big advantage.” Simon Marcic
