Join a Team of Americans as they attempt to tackle the toughest motorcycle class of the toughest race in the world. The renowned

Dakar Rally. Previously known as the Paris to Dakar. It is a 15 Day Extreme Rally Navigation Race throughout the landscapes of Saudi Arabia. 

After finishing the Dakar in 2020 (Supported with a mechanic and team) Kyle McCoy dug deep into the history of American finishers and realized (from records and speaking with all of the old timers):

No American has ever finished in the “Malle Moto” (or Trunk) class of Dakar in its history. 

The “Malle Moto” class (now called “Original by Motul”) takes this race to another level. All racers must do this event with minimal to no support - allowed only one trunk (box) of gear. Sleeping in tents, maintaining and repairing their own vehicles and receiving no outside support. “It’s like choosing to run the Iditarod rather than taking a dog sled”, said David Pearson, Team Manager.
