RUST magazine: Rust#20

Rust#20 It’s Dakar Rally time – and RUST rates the runners and riders. Have we 
got it right? WIN a pair of GoldenTyre extreme enduro tyres Round The World adventurer in the making, Andy Dukes ponders the 
solo mission After 15 years racing from one bivouac to the next Chris Evans finally escaped the Dakar, but this year he’s been called back. A good thing? We all need a guru – someone who’s been around the traps and talks sense. So here’s one we at RUST know well… Yep, RUST 20 has gone live with just minutes to spare before the Christmas break. So there’s some good reading for you here for when you’ve had your fill of the usual movie classic re-runs, let alone the endless mince pies. We hope you have a happy Christmas and the New Year brings some great rides. We’ll be hopping it up in 2017 and look forward to keeping you entertained as best we can, so see you again in January! Seasons greetings! JON BENTMAN (Editor, RUST)


RUST Rally tated sufficiently to ride again. Since then, he has become legendary not only for his thrilling riding, but for his endurance and pain tolerance, winning Australia’s Finke Desert Race while riding with a broken foot and ankle. Behind Price, Slovakia’s Stefan Svitko bagged an incredible second place in Dakar 2016. His army of fans will be looking for the quiet Slovnaft-KTM rider to repeat the feat, but the charging Chilean Pablo Quintanilla (third in 2016) is ready to become the first rider from South America to win the bike class, and if his Rockstar Husky and race run smoothly there’s every chance Quintanilla will manage just that. Kevin Benavides has been one of the most impressive talents to emerge in recent years and the young Argentinian was looking to better his fourth place finish and step on the podium at home in Buenos Aires in front of millions of local supporters, but a wrist-hand injury has ruled him out at the 11th hour – again, Honda must wonder when their luck will change. It’s easy to assume that those at the head of the field will be the same pack that made last year so exciting, but 2017 is absolutely wide open with not only Price, Quintanilla, Van Beveren and Rodrigues on flying form but many more to consider too; Red Bull Factory KTM’s Matthias Walkner and Sam
