|SA-Dakar 2011: Baja 500 winner Quinn Cody to race the 2011 Dakar Rally.|
In a partnership between JCR/Honda, American Honda, Honda Europe and HT Rally Raid among many others, the US-based Quinn Cody will participate in the 2011 South-America Dakar. His recent exploits include winning the 2010 Baja 500 and the remarkable, solo winning of the 2010 Vegas 2 Reno overall. He will be racing on a JCR/Honda, HT Rally Raid modified Honda CRF450X, appropriately named the DakarX.
"I am extremely excited for the opportunity to take on the 2011 Dakar. The Dakar has been a life-long dream for me and with the new rules limiting the pro motorcycles to 450cc, the timing could not be better for JCR/Honda to take our unmatched experience with the CRF450X to The Dakar" said Quinn Cody.
"As a former racer of the Dakar going back has been on my radar since I started JCR/Honda. I am very pleased at how this team came together, who is involved and I have total faith in Quinn Cody's skills as a racer. Quinn has the fitness and speed to win and the Honda CRF450X with Lucas Oils is an unstoppable racing machine. The key will be navigation and strategy and JCR/Honda & HT Rally Raid crews are committed to bringing our A game" added Johnny Campbell from the Team.
