As the sole Yamalube Yamaha Official Rally Team rider remaining in the Dakar Rally, Rodney Faggotter has continued his impressive run in the worlds toughest rally race.
Faggotter finished the 11th stage in 16th position, 41 minutes behind stage winner, Australian Toby Price and climbed into 18th position overall.
Alexandre Kowalski – Yamalube Yamaha Official Rally Team Director – “This Dakar has been one of mixed emotions for us. We’ve managed to be among the key players since the start of the event, but we were unlucky to see Franco, Xavier and then Adrien lose the opportunity to fight until the end. Following Adrien’s crash yesterday, we’ve all stood behind Rodney in his quest to bring his bike to the finish of this extremely challenging event. Rod keeps impressing every single day. He’s been one of the most consistent racers in this year’s rally and he’s gradually moving higher up in the overall rankings. We’re really satisfied with his hard work and dedication and we will keep supporting him 100% until he crosses the finish line in Córdoba.”
