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 Rall y

Yeah for sure, to come back and fight for the world title all year has been nice especially with the time off and not really feeling 100% for the first part of the season. This year my goal was just to focus on Dakar and the team supported me in that, I tried to keep calm when situations would arise where there could be more risk, and not think about winning the world championship and just getting through each day and each race. Speed has never really been a problem for me and I knew if I could arrive each day I would be in a good position, and that way of thinking seems to have worked well even in the shorter sprinttype races in the World Championship, so I will keep going like that for Dakar. And finally, what is your favourite and least favourite thing about the Dakar? Favourite thing has to be the passion of the South American people for this race! It’s really cool to see all the fans on the sidelines stood there cheering you on, getting involved when guys need help and things. My least favourite is the lack of sleep and cold weather, it takes a lot of strength to keep clear and keep pushing when you’re really tired and cold!
