Finishing 4th in class and the top-finishing rookie in 2019, American Casey Currie stamped his mark on the Dakar Rally—but left with unfinished business. Season 2 of All In On Dakar begins with a behind the scenes look at last year’s race.
It’s not so much a race as it is survival—that’s why, since the first Dakar in 1977, racers & machines that conquer this challenge become instant legends.
Since 2017, the Maverick X3 has claimed back-to-back class wins thanks to its durability. In 2019, 19 of the top 20 finishers were in a Maverick X3—combined, they raced nearly 100,000 off-road miles in 12 days.
How’s this for growing up quickly? Casey Currie was racing motorcycles by 5, wheeling race trucks at 16—and successful enough to open the doors of his own team…at 22. From the deserts around Anaheim Hills, California to finishing 4th at the Dakar Rally and being crowned the 2019 Dakar Rookie of the Year, Casey is no stranger to getting the most from his fleet of off-road machines. A star within the Monster Energy Can-Am Racing team and multi-time champion across too many disciplines to list, look for Casey’s Maverick X3 to be right near the front—no matter which continent he’s racing on.
Reinaldo Varela won the Dakar Rally side-by-side class in 2018—driving a Can-Am Maverick X3. From roots in Brazil to off-road races across the globe, he’s a world-class champion to follow…if you can keep up.
Off-road racer Gerard Farrés is one of the best people to follow on and off the course: he often posts a behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to race at the front—recently, finishing 3rd at Dakar Rally 2019.
López began riding motorcycles at 4 years of age through the encouragement of his father Renato López, a national motocross champion. His nickname Chaleco comes from the Spanish for vest, particularly the vest used for race protection. He returned to the Dakar in 2019 to compete in the SxS category, winning 4 stages and achieving his first title.
While being one of the youngest participants of the scoring, he has already become a champion of Dakar. Sergei Karyakin is the first Russian sportsman who became a champion in rally Dakar in the category ATV.
Nowadays Sergei is the leader of his own racing team, which constantly find new technical solutions. Team’s victories on the international sport arena – Silk Way Rally, Rallye du Maroc, Can-Am X Race on Can-Am Maverick X3– confirm the accuracy of the chosen path. The sportsman shares his experience with children – this year Sregei Karyakin driving school for children was found.
Endurance. Adventure. Strength. Personal triumphs. This is the story of the ultimate test: our Maverick X3 side-by-side teams racing the 2020 Dakar.
