I’m Neil Hawker and this year I’ll cross the Dakar 2020 finish line!

My  romance for Dakar started by watching my dad’s cassette recordings from Grandstand on the BBC! He gave me the passion for motorcycles since I was just a kid and now I want to live my dream competing in the toughest motorsport race!

See how i plan on getting there

The Dakar Rally is without doubt the hardest motorsport event on Earth

There are some challenges that capture the imagination like no other. Every year hundreds of people try to conquer Everest. Some choose to run a marathon, or chase the dream of the Tour De France.

For every Offroad racer or adventurous motorcyclist, the Dakar is the ultimate test. It challenges your skill, knowledge and fitness but most of all, it lets you figure out who you are. It’s the longest, most physically and mentally demanding and more importantly spectacular event on the planet.

As well as a worldwide audience, the Dakar carries a weight and an interest that runs deeper than anything else. It’s one of the last great challenges where suffering is given and the greatest stories are born.

It is my perfect adventure a life long dream and becoming a reality.

Racing the Dakar it's definitely a dream for all the enthusiasts of motorcycle/enduro racers and I am one of them. It's a huge challenge just to get there, at the start line and that is where the fight actually just begins.

I am hoping to gather all of your guys positive energy and support, to make what looks like an almost impossible task a mission that we can all conquer.

On the right is the list of things that I need to make it to the start line.
