Racing the famous Dakar rally is a life long dream of many motorcycle riders. But apart from the hefty price tag, the other show-stopper is that as private entry you need to put in place a logistics that would make most Army quartermaster green from envy (well.. they are of course already green...).

The biggest motorcycle choice of the Dakar is still KTM, but there are alternatives. A French group, called HFP-offroad Open link in a new window are offering a Yamaha motorcycle package, including a WRF450, totally kitted out for the Dakar race, and a support package that goes with it. They should know what they are doing, since they sponsored David Fretigne's Dakar race (in 2009 he ending in 3rd overall).

They offer different support packages, A, B, and C, each with different support options and prices. The support includes the HFP Service truck. Options are prices between €20,000 and €30,000, depending on what you want as support and what you want on your motorcycle.

For those prices you get a Yamaha WRF 450 (Fretigne replica), support and spares. So no problem planning, just get the package, and let them worry about the logistics.
