Riding the Dakar Rally when you’re paraplegic? Yes, you can!

Becoming paraplegic changes your life radically. Nicola Dutto, European Baja motorbike champion in 2008 and 2010, knows all about it. One minute he was riding desert ground, sand dunes, and rough muddy trails… next minute he was riding a wheelchair.

But Nicola has always had a dream that he still wants to fulfil: riding the Dakar Rally on his motorbike! A 10-day race in which participants have to conquer over 10.000 kilometres of desert terrain. And 2019 should be the year to make it happen!

Vicair is a proud sponsor of Nicola Dutto’s road to Dakar 2019. Discover this unique story and find out why Vicair is supporting Nicola.
