MotoGP Podcast special with Dakar standout Petrucci

Jan 26 2022

The Race MotoGP podcast welcomes special guest Danilo Petrucci in its latest edition, as the Italian discusses his first attempt at the Dakar Rally.

Petrucci, a two-time race winner in grand prix racing’s premier class, left MotoGP at the end of last season but was set up with a shot at the Dakar by employer KTM – which yielded a stage win and several other standout performances.

Joining host Toby Moody and MotoGP writers Simon Patterson and Valentin Khorounzhiy, Petrucci discusses the highs but also the lows of his experience in Saudi Arabia, telling stories of frantically trying to find a path when getting lost in the desert and of coming close to pulling out of the rally entirely shortly after his fifth-stage triumph.

The Italian also addresses the one part of the Dakar he still struggles to accept, and touches upon why he is set to make a return to road racing in MotoAmerica this season instead of tackling the cross-country world championship – and what this means for his future Dakar plans.
