Dakar 2022: Petrucci pao zbog deve i pobijedio!

424132 danilo petrucci Dakar Rally 2022 Stage5 1173

Donedavni MotoGP vozač ne prestaje oduševljavati. Ovaj put je pobijedio na brzincu, kojeg je započeo padam nakon što se umalo sudario s devom.

Na kraju 4. etape Danilo Petrucci je bio treći najbrži, ali je nakon toga dobio kaznu od 10 sekundi i službeno završio kao petnaesti. U petoj etapi je bio drugi najbrži, ali je službeno pobijedio, nakon što je Toby Price dobio kaznu od 6 minuta. I pobijedio je u idealnom trenutku, jer na idućoj etapi, za razliku od svih ostalih, onaj tko kreće prvi neće biti hendikepiran. Naime, motociklisti će voziti po etapi na kojoj su dan ranije vozili automobilisti (vrijedi i obrnuto), tako da će Petrucci imati tragove za slijediti i utoliko će onima iza njega biti teže uhvatiti ga. Doista, sve je veća šteta što je Petrucci odustao na drugoj etapi zbog kvara, i nakon toga dobio 11 sati kazne, tako da je trenutno tek 47. u ukupnom poretku.

Da priča bude zanimljivija, Petrucci je svoj pobjednički dan započeo tako da je iza jednog zavoja naletio na deve, pri čemu mu se baš jedna velika ispriječila na putu. Uspio ju je nekako izbjeći, ali je potom svejedno pao. Bilo mu je to tek prvi puta da je pao na reliju Dakar, što je tek malo manje nevjerojatna činjenica od one da je već uspio odnijeti i etapnu pobjedu. I to na etapi na kojoj su svi jurili žestoko, te su dotad ukupno osmi Skyler Hawkes i sedmi Joan Barrreda, kao pobjednik prethodnog dana, imali teške padove i možda neće ni nastaviti. Dan ranije je teško pao i ukupno vodeći Sam Sunderland, a danas i njegov GasGas kolega Sanders, koji je pritom iščašio rame, ali mu se ono samo vratilo na mjesto, pa je zadržao četvrto mjesto ukupnom poretku. Zapravo, bilo je toliko padova da je etapa prekinuta i prije nego što su svi prošli ciljem, jer je ponestalo medicinskih helikoptera.

Inače, poredak prve šestorice se nije mijenjao, ali se zato Ross Branch s Yamahom (fotografija na dnu), kao drugi najbrži na etapi, probio do 7. mjesta. Slijedi još jedna etapa, pa onda dan odmora u subotu, uoči ulasku u drugu polovicu relija Dakar.

MBE 2022 najava 

Motor Bike Expo is once again confirmed and returning to excite motorcycle enthusiasts for its usual four days at Veronafiere. From Thursday the 13th to Sunday the 16th, the motorcycling public can return to experience the most important event in the world where personalized motorcycles shine alongside series production models which will be nationally presented in Verona.
The Custom world acknowledges MBE once again as the most prestigious showcase for unveiling for the very first time the newest 2022 creations – there are already more than fifty never-before-seen custom bikes ready to be unveiled at Veronafiere.
8 pavilions open to the public with a total of 600 exhibitors and 120.000 smq of exhibition area.

International gusts: Toni Bou and American artists
One of the most eagerly awaited is without a doubt the thirty-time Trial World Champion Toni Bou, who on Saturday and Sunday will perform for the public at Motor Bike Expo a series of jumps, twists, and tricks which will leave everyone breathless. A unique occasion to see the all-time best rider in this specialty perform live.

The Custom world
Customizers are eager to meet with custom bike enthusiasts again at their showcase of excellence. The long weekend in Verona will be an opportunity to present as many as fifty innovative projects which will compete in their various stands and numerous contests. Carlo Colombo of Asso Special Bikes – with the presentation of five completely new customs as well as thirty motorcycles on display – confirms himself as one of the most long-lived and prolific customizers on the Italian custom bike scene.
Punto di Fuga, a multidisciplinary container linked to the passion for two wheels, will present in Verona a new sidecar: a "hybrid" project, built on Harley-Davidson mechanics with Indian bodywork and aesthetic references, which will certainly have everyone talking about it.
"This year I have abandoned the Old Shool lines that characterized my most famous creations," anticipates Matteo Fustinoni of Hazard. "I wanted to try my hand at more modern engineering, to confront myself with current technological solutions. I will be exhibiting three new customs: a powerful chopper called Chop Drag based on the Harley-Davidson Breakout, with innovative lines and exaggerated performance; then there will be a second custom based on the Breakout and then a completely revised Harley-Davidson XR1200 with superstructures made entirely from aluminum. You'll see, it will really be something innovative!"

New for 2022: the Custom District

For Custom fans, one of the most exciting new features of MBE 2022 will be the setup in Hall 1 of the Custom District. This is an area entirely dedicated to custom culture, characterized by the presence of particularly spectacular stands, artists, customizers and protagonists of the international scene.
Everything will revolve around the Simpson stage where special cars and hot rods will be on display.
A path that promises to be a space-time journey in the universe of custom art and culture. Thes new dedicated area will bring together the big names of the Italian and international scene in a never-before-seen setting with unique pieces that will amaze fans looking for truly special bikes. A constellation of customizers and artists who need no introduction, including Abnormal Cycles, Boccin Custom Cycles, Boman, Dox, Low Society, Morgese, Moto Marinelli, Niko Bikes, PDF, Radikal Chopper... The concept of customization will also be applied to four wheels with the presence of extraordinary hot and street rods.

Hall 4: Motorcycles are a lifestyle
Each pavilion at VeronaFiere opens up a different horizon to motorcyclists visiting MBE. Hall 4 is traditionally dedicated to those who have made motorcycles their way of life. BMW Motorrad confirms Verona as the ideal showcase for their Heritage range. The stars will be the R18 cruiser and the R NineTs, previewed also in the versions customized by world-renowned top builders and personalized by with their line of accessories. "How did they imagine the motorcycle of the future in the Fifties?" is the question Radikal Chopper tries to answer, who, in collaboration with BMW Motorrad, will present in Verona a completely new reinterpretation of the cruiser of the moment. "I wanted to deviate completely from the interpretations so far produced by the international custom scene," anticipates the customizer Andrea Radaelli, who specifies: "my prototype will be a creation with unusual lines, it will look to the future with close attention to retro details that distinguishes the signature Radikal customs".
Enthusiasts will finally be able to admire the Ducati DesertX, one of the most eagerly awaited offroad novelties of 2022. The new V2 Panigale and Streetfighter will also shine in the spotlight on the Ducati stand, in addition to the display of the Panigale V4 and V4S and the Multistrada line. Royal Enfield continues to focus and win on the classic front: in Verona it will present the complete range of the twin-cylinder 650 Interceptor and Continental GT in addition to the new entry level Meteor and Classic 350 and the tried and tested Himalayan 410. For the event, Royal Enfield will display three specials built on the 350 platform, including bobbers and flat trackers.
Hall 4 will be enriched by the presence of big names such as Barracuda, Continental, Michelin, Pakelo, and many names in the motorcycle aftermarket. Among the customizers, the presence of Apache Custom Cycles, Boldi Special & Co, Motociclette Bottega Bastarda, MDMoto and Moto Sport Fratelli Ciot is confirmed. The magazine Special Cafe will hold the anticipated contest reserved for customs and cafe racers.

Hall 5: The Adventouring and Electric boom
This is where the panorama dedicated to the worlds of street, off-road and electric motorcycles opens up. The area dedicated to zero emission two-wheelers is particularly exciting thanks to the presence of emerging brands such as Cake, XEV Campello Motors, 2Electron and E-Move Zero. Motorcyclists will also be given a boost by the presence of the main players of adventouring, the discipline that combines Enduro and adventure motorcycling, to be experienced surrounded by nature. A trend that brings together many motorcyclists from different sectors, from tourism to off-road, from vintage to specialized workshops, with the addition of apparel and accessory brands. Among the brands in Hall 5, Olitema (MBE's Official Green Partner), Nolan X-Lite, Garmin, Alpa, Cellularline, and SST. The imposing hospitality of the FMI (Italian Motorcycle Federation) will be home for all enthusiasts. The impressive Enduro Republic bivouac is also waiting to be discovered; here the off-roader will be spoilt for choice, to enjoy a binge of dirt roads and drifts with the Di Traverso School, Ciro De Petri and the Swank Rally of Sardinia.

Hall 6: The Racing party is here
Speed, fun, performance: these are some of the dominant themes in Hall 6, where Yamaha, Benelli, Ohvale, Motul and Primatex with the Virus Power brand will be the stars. The racing world is represented by a series of brands of accessories, clothing (Arai, Dainese, GiMoto, Mosko Moto, Tucano Urbano, Vircos, Wheelup), special parts (Evotech, Liqui Moly, MSR Exhaust, Simoni Racing, Spider) and organizers of track and offroad events (Ag Motorsport, Cremona Circuit). All eyes are on Tamburini Corse, the hypersport motorcycle company founded by Andrea Tamburini, son of Massimo, the designer of the Bimota and MV F4.

Safety, non-profits, and every kind of shopping
The desire to get away and enjoy the attention to safety, the world of associations, presentations and a bit of healthy shopping: there are many reasons to stop by Hall 7, among the areas for track, off-road, touring and second-hand bikes set up around the Meeting Point: a space dedicated to meetings, presentations and in-depth analysis. There are also clubs, associations and organizers of motorcycle-centric initiatives.

Dakar 2022: Petrucci 3. najbrži, GasGas vodi

28998 sam sunderland Dakar Rally 2022 Stage3 0887

Iako se zbog ranijeg kvara na motociklu više ne vodi u ukupnom poretku, MotoGP vozač Petrucci je nastavio juriti poput pustinjske oluje.

Nema nikakve sumnje da je nakon završetka 4. etape zvijezda dana Danilo Petrucci, koji je prije manje od 2 mjeseca završio MotoGP karijeru i prebacio se na rally, u svakom pogledu potpuno drugačiju disciplinu. I sad je već u, tek trećoj etapi koju je u cijelosti odvozio, završio kao treći najbrži, s nepunih 7 minuta zaostatka za Barredom na Hondi, kojem je to već 29. etapna pobjeda. A senzacionalan rezultat Petrucija (donja fotografija) je i utoliko sjajniji što je bila riječ o etapi s najdužim brzinskim ispitom na ovogodišnjem reliju Dakar, u trajanju od čak 466 km (koju je odradio za tek nešto više od 4 sata). Uglavnom, prava je šteta što je već dva dana ranije zbog kvara na svom KTM-u Petrucci morao odustati, pa više ne figurira u ukupnom poretku, nego vozi samo za svoju dušu.

A kad smo već kod ukupnog poretka, spomenimo da su tu od početka relija na samom vrhu vozači GasGasa. Britanac Sam Sunderland je za ovu godinu unutar KTM-a dobio premještaj na istovjetni GasGas motocikl, te drži prvo mjesto bez obzira što je bio jedan od mnogih koji su imali problema s jednom navigacijskom točkom na drugoj etapi. Osim tog detalja, Sunderland vozi bez greške, dok je njegov timski kolega Daniel Sanders pred kraj treće etape namjerno stao „nešto pojest“ kako ne bi trebao startati prvi učio dugačke četvrte etape. Ni startanje s 5. pozicije mu nije pomoglo, te je izgubio četvrt sata, ali svejedno je četvrti u ukupno poretku.

Walkner drži drugu poziciju i trenutno je jedini doista uvjerljivi tvornički vozač KTM-a, s prošlogodišnjim pobjednikom Kevinom Benavidesom na 10. mjestu, dok je pomalo indisponirani Price tek 16. Francuz Van Beveren vozi bez greške i trenutno drži treće mjesto s Yamahom, dok se na peto mjesto popeo Santolino sa Shercom, što i nije takvo iznenađenje kad znamo da je Španjolac prošle godine bio 6. Nakon doista diskretnog starta, vozači Honde su na 4. etapi uspjeli nešto napredovati, pa je tako Quintanilla ukupno 6., a Barreda s dvije etapne pobjede poziciju ispred njega, dok je Brabec tek 19. sa skoro satom zaostatka.

No, još se uvijek sve stigne nekoliko puta stubokom promijeniti, to više što onaj tko pobijedi na jednoj etapi, na onoj idućoj lako može izgubiti pola sata, jer kreće kao prvi i muči se s navigacijom, ostavljajući onima iza sebe jasno vidljive tragove u pijesku, koji je ove godine izuzetno kompaktan nakon obilnih kiša. Upravo to je slučaj s Joaquimom Rodriguesom, koji je na trećoj etapi osvojio prvu pobjedu za sebe i za indijsku marku Hero, a onda na četvrtoj etapi krenuo prvi i izgubio 29 minuta i 38 sekundi. Trenutno je 19. u ukupnom poretku, odnosno posljednji unutar zaostatka od jednog sata za vodećim Sunderlandom.

Dakar 2022: Petrucci (nije sasvim) odustao nakon sjajnog starta

423827 danilo petrucci Dakar Rally 2022 prologue 0371

Dojučerašnji MotoGP vozač je imao 6. prolazno vrijeme na 3. etapi. A onda je došlo do mehaničkog kvara i morao je odustati.

Ažurirano: Iako nije završio etapu, Petrucci je iskoristio svoj joker i idućeg dana nastavio rally, ali je zauzvrat morao prihvatiti vremensku kaznu veću od 11 sati. 

Kako bi ublažili tugu što mu za 2022. moraju dati otkaz u MotoGP momčadi Tech 3, u KTM-u su simpatičnom Petrucciju ponudili da kao pridruženi član njihove tvorničke momčad nastupi na reliju Dakar i tako ostvari svoj dječački san. Prilika je to koja se ne propušta, iako mu je malo toga išlo u prilog. Uostalom, riječ je o potpuno drugačijoj disciplini, u kojoj je bitna i navigacija i snalaženje u prostoru, za što se Danilo Petrucci nije mogao adekvatno pripremiti zbog svojih donedavnih MotoGP obveza. A da stvar bude gora, nekih tjedan dana prije relija je na treningu slomio kost u gležnju.

Danilo Petrucci KTM Factory Racing 2022 Dakar Rally 2

Svejedno se pojavio na startu, i drugog je dana uspio izbjeći navigacijsku zamku te završiti kao 13. najbrži. I to usprkos tome što je, kako kaže, vozio samo s jednom nogom, jer je desnu koristio samo za kočenje. Danas mu je krenulo još i bolje te je nakon prvog prolaza imao 6. najbrže vrijeme. Uglavnom, bio je to star iznad svih očekivanja, no onda mu se, na 115. km, pokvario motocikl. I očito se radilo o zbiljnom kvaru, jer je Petrucci objavio da odustaje i zatražio prijevoz helikopterom. Ostaje za vidjeti hoće li nakon ovog obećavajućeg starta dvostruki MotoGP pobjednik nastaviti rally karijeru ili će ipak prihvatiti ponudu Ducatija da vozi u MotoAmerica prvenstvu.
