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)

Five questions 27-year-old Brit Sam Sunderland has had a difficult run so far in his quest to top the box at the Dakar. The Factory Red Bull KTM rider has talent by the bucket load, but oft seems to be struck with bad luck or untimely injuries. Exciting to watch with an all-out style, and with a friendly and laid-back attitude off the bike, Sunderland would be a popular victor among rally fans. We caught up with Sam to find out his take on 2017. You’re yet to finish a Dakar, do you feel added pressure this year to bring home the goods? Or will you just be taking it stage by stage? No, the team are really good like that; they understand the race and how many things can come into play. They trust in us the same as we trust in them. And for me it’s all okay, as long as my want to win is more than the pressure from outside then it doesn’t really effect me. I think the Dakar is a race that HAS to be taken stage by stage. Did Toby Price’s win last year inspire you? Proving that a relative newcomer, and a relative youngster, was able to beat the older and more experienced riders?
