Ricky Brabec just claimed his first Overall Victory at the 2020 Dakar Rally and becomes the first American to do so! Brabec has Won it all, and adds the Dakar Rally to his trophy collection that includes races like the SCORE International San Felipe 250, SCORE International Baja 500, and SCORE International Baja 1000.

After nearly winning the 2019 Dakar Rally and suffering a very disappointing DNF, Ricky Brabec is back and on top of the world, beating the likes of Pablo Quintanilla, Toby Price, Jose Ignacio Cornejo, Matthias Walkner, Luciano Benavides, Joan Barreda, Franco Caimi, Skyler Howes, and Andrew Short!

Congratulations to Ricky Brabec, the Monster Energy Honda Team, and all of America! This Win is a World-Class-Victory for all of us and proves that we breed the very best of the best motorcycle racers in the world.
