Simon Marčič


My father bought me a 125cc dirt bike in 1998 after I had got good grades at school and after I had already smashed a 50cc moped, riding enduro. So riding bikes goes way back. The Dakar is a real challenge for me. A life long project and dreamed wish. I prepared for the rally by competing in the 2013 European regional enduro championship and winning in class E1. I also raced in the Slovenian enduro championship (vice champion) and Slovenian cross-country cup (vice champion)
