KTM has concluded another successful Dakar Rally with incredible results yesterday (January 17) when Toby Price defied the odds to take the Austrian manufacturer’s 18th consecutive victory as part of an all-Red Bull KTM Factory Racing podium. Matthias Walkner and Sam Sunderland battled to second and third positions aboard their KTM 450 RALLY factory machines.

Perhaps one of the toughest Dakar races yet with over 5,000 kilometers travelled in Peru over 10 stages, the battle of the terrain and the competition provided close racing right until the end of the final day. While there was initially doubt that Price would be able to compete in the 2019 edition of the event due to a broken wrist sustained just over one month ago, the racer’s pure grit, determination and skill saw the Australian-ace steer his KTM 450 RALLY factory machine to an emotional victory.
