It hasn't been a very good year as far as crashes go. Sadly, we lost another one today.
3 times Dakar winner, KTM factory racer Richard Sainct, crashed and died today while competing in the Rallye des Pharaons in Egypt.
It was quite the thrill earlier this year when our CLiXX Motosport sponsored KTM 660 ridden by Charlie Rauseo got to compete with the likes of Sainct, Meoni, Roma..., in the 2004 Dakar. We are not up to their level of racing, but it was still an amazing feeling to be involved in competition amongst one of my long time idols.
Goodbye Richard Sainct. Thanks for the joy and excitement you brought to so many around the world.
