Yamaha's Dakar 2014 Highlight Video

Tuesday, March 25, 2014
Yamaha made a big push for Dakar glory in 2014, fielding one of the most decorated champions in the sport’s history, Cyril Despres, along with an updated machine fit to challenge long-dominant KTM. Oliver Pain, Michael Metge and Frans Verhoeven joined Despres on the Yamaha squad and in the end Pain was top rider for Team Blue, scoring a podium finish in third. Despres earned fourth-place after rebounding from a difficult start while Metge crossed the line in 13th overall. Verhoeven was unable to finish the 2014 edition, but the team plans to return in 2015 and has a very real chance of putting the blue bike on the top-step. In commemoration of its efforts in 2014 Yamaha put together a highlight video (included below) of its riders in action, the grandiose vistas of Argentina, Bolivia and Chile a stunning backdrop for the expert skill of riders rocketing across isolated and untamed terrain, chasing victory.
