How good do you need to be to finish the Dakar?

The question is commonly asked but the answer may surprise you! We sat down with Dakar finisher and motorcycle trainer Patsy Quick to ask that exact question.

This subject is a difficult one. The path to Dakar is well trodden, but the details are not well shared. For this podcast, our aim was to break the journey down into simple steps and unpack them thoroughly.There aren’t many people better qualified for the job than Patsy. She’s been through the journey herself, taking four attempts to finish before turning her hand to helping others chase their dreams.
