Marc Coma is one of the pilots most successful in the history of the Dakar and a great reference in the motorcycle category. After 12 units, five titles and two second places, the pilot of Aviá decided to hang up the monkey, but not divested itself of the raid which so many successes had given him. The five-time Dakar winner and six-times World Championship FIM Rally Cross Country is now part of the staff of the test and has been one of the maximum responsible for scheduling a tour with technical and complicated for the participants that face the raid in 2016.
The Dakar 2016 in fact represents the start of the era ‘post Coma’ and that assumes that the number ‘1’ is bacante. The pilot who wants to win the title not only should overcome the shadow elongated in the Spanish pilot, but the demanding course that has been prepared in the past few months. Without Marc Coma, the test suffers from a notable absence, but it is a loss especially notable for a KTM that has had to reinvent itself completely. The so-called to try to replace the greatest talent that has walked on the signature austrian are Matthias Walkner, Toby Price, Jordi Viladoms and Laia Sanz. Sam Sunderland has caused low.
will Not be an easy task, although KTM claims to be ready for the new challenge. In any case, and before entering in the dynamics of competition in the Dakar, the firm has wanted to pay tribute to that which has been their biggest star until last season. KTM has released a video tribute to Marc Coma, thanking him for the efforts made and above all, thanking the many successes in the Dakar and in the World FIM Rally Cross-Country. 12 years getting victories with the bikes of the signing of the austrian deserve this and much more. ¡Dale al play!
