2016 Dakar Rally winner Toby Price at the Clipslal 500
Toby Price this year became the first Australian to win the Dakar Rally, and the first person to win after only two attempts.
Now he talks about the race, how he started riding at 2-and-a-half years, his titantic struggle back from a severe spinal injury, how many years he thinks he has in the Dakar and even how to hold on when there are no toilet stops on a 400km rally stage!

The video comes after the KTM Red Bull Racing Team rider managed two podium appearances at the V8 season-opening Clipsal 500 in Adelaide where he competed in the Stadium Super Trucks and the 2016 Enduro-X Cup on a track of his own design at the weekend.
The Maitland, NSW, rider powered his KTM 350 SX-F to a podium finish during Friday’s competition, then used the same machine to win Super-Pole and finish second in the main event – Saturday’s 2016 Enduro-X Cup – behind Husqvarna’s Mitcham Harper and ahead of Lachlan Stanford.
In his ‘spare time’, Price took the Dakar trophy out to meet the fans.
