13-the multiple winner “Dakar” Stephane Peterhansel has shared his opinion on why young people are so hard to prove himself in the main rally-RAID of the planet.
If in the Formula 1 and MotoGP sets the tone for the younger generation, the “Dakar” in the foreground remain age racers. In particular, in the category of vehicles over the last few decade won only participants older than 36 years. Why? Explains, “Mr. Dakar”.

“To achieve success on the Dakar, you need wisdom and composure. Young riders is hard to control myself. They are able to go quickly, but for a correct assessment of the situation in rally-raids need experience – quotes Peterhansel to the publication Motorsport-Total. – Sometimes you have to accept the loss of time, if you want to get to the finish line. Otherwise, you can do something stupid and be out of the game. That’s what I mean about wisdom.”
