Normally we don’t pay huge attention to seventh-place finishers in most races, but the Dakar is different. One of – if not the most – grueling race in the world, the Dakar 2017 has produced some spectacular pictures and videos. Take, for example, Husqvarna’s Dakar 2017 race recap video below.

Begin Press Release:

Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing Team’s riders had their highs and lows in the 2017 edition of the Dakar Rally, the annual, 9,000 km trek through South America that is an enormous test for man and machine. French rider Pela Renet reached the finish in Buenos Aires safely on January 14 in seventh overall to achieve a remarkable top 10 result in only his second edition. Pablo Quintanilla was forced to retire in stage 10 while in second overall and on target for a podium finish.
