Project Dakar #BecauseICan

Project Dakar #BecauseICan is down but not out!

A gang invaded our home and took everything we have tried to create. The insurance company is refusing to pay out. 

This whole project is about inspiring others during difficult times. We refuse to give up on our dream of the Dakar Rally and our ambition to inspire as many people as possible.

Right now we are going to need your help to achieve that. We have lost 12 months worth of work and investment and have only 18 months left with no bikes or equipment to train on. 

Whilst we are ok, we lost quite literally everything.  All the bikes, helmets, clothing and protection. They even stole bottles of oil! 

In order not to let these people win we need to replace this kit and get back out there as soon as we can. 

Once we have made it to Dakar we would like to use all the kit and funding to support the next generation of young racers and adventurers - this way they will not win and some good will come from this dark moment #BecauseICan
