Dakar Rally is an anticipated annual event with a wide audience that spans across the globe and competitors from over 20 countries. The race classifies as an endurance race, with different types of off-road vehicles and bikes modified to meet the requirements, competing against each other, facing the most difficult rugged terrain, throughout various routes, ranging from mud, rock, sand tracks and more.
It is worth noting that participant Salman Mohammed held an intensive training camp under the supervision of Emirati Champion Mohammed Al Balooshi at the MX-Academy Dubai, in order to improve his performance and focus in preparation for the upcoming Rally. Training has commenced in the beginning of October 2020 and is currently being continued in Bahrain. During last year’s rally, Salman Mohammed was lauded for his outstanding performance and sportsmanship, when he stopped racing to help an injured racer, as well as another competitor who faced motorcycle malfunction during the race.
