When Matthias Walkner arrived at the previous edition of the Dakar Rally there was expectation on his shoulders. The former MX3 World Champion was no longer a rally-raid rookie as he already had one Dakar participation under his belt. He had also secured the 2015 FIM World Cross-Country Rallies Championship title.
The Austrian member of the Red Bull KTM Factory Team was on the attack to take the lead of the 2016 Dakar when a heavy crash on stage 7 forced him to retire from the contest.
Watch One Track Back on Red Bull TV to follow Matthias as he battles to put a disappointing Dakar behind him and fight to take the start-line of the next edition of the desert classic.
