After a final trip to Morocco for the Merzouga Rally everything is set for Dakar 2016. The bike, kit bag, and rally boxes are with Nomade Racing in France ready for the journey to South America.
Corky 'The Cat' (as nicknamed by Eurosport's Carlton Kirby) spent 3 years training and sold the family home back in 2013 to fulfil his dream of competing in the Dakar Rally. His 1st attempt in 2015 ended suddenly at the end of day 4 with a crash resulting in a few broken bones. He returned in 2016 where a mechanical problem finally saw him exit the event at the end of day 12. Go Trail Riding was set up to help get raise the funds needed for Corky to reach his Everest. He is back in training and hoping to return to the start line in 2019
