After having sworn off racing the notorious Dakar Open link in a new window rally on his BMW motorcycle, famous off-road instructor and head of the BMW Off-Road Riding Skills Course Open link in a new window, Australian Simon "Si" Pavey, has caved in to the lure of the Dakar. For the 2011 Dakar, you'll be seeing Simon racing a BMW with the number 51.

Simon already has raced 7 times in the Dakar, and is therefore a qualified veteran. He shot to fame after training celebrity motorcycle riders Ewan Mcgregor Open link in a new window and Charley Boorman Open link in a new window for their Long Way Round adventure rides, and Charley's ill-fated Dakar race (he also trained me....for what it's worth).

Despite having some sponsors, Simon is still looking at more donations in order to meet the extreme high cost of racing the Dakar. If you want to contribute, click here to help Simon out Open link in a new window.
