Posted on


Compass Expeditions is very excited to announce that they will be sponsoring the privateer team of Kunststoffe Husqvarna UK for the 2013 Dakar Rally.

Compass Expeditions has signed up as a sponsor with the privateer team of Kunststoffe Husqvarna UK. Simon Pavey will participate in his 9th Dakar with co rider Canadian Don Hatton.

“Its is a great thrill to be involved with Simon and the team in this way” says Mick McDonald, Compass Expeditions Co-founder, “it enables us to be somewhat involved in this iconic rally, Simons 9th, and to see the Compass Expeditions logo on the graphics of the bike makes it even more exciting” continues Mick.

Simon and the team will be producing a web based documentary; “Making Dakar is something that I’m really excited about. People are always asking me about the preparation for Dakar, the training, bike building, scrutineering and all the bits that the TV isn’t able to cover. It’s our way of giving something to Dakar fans that I think is being missed at the moment.” Says Simon Pavey

Simon will also be in Australia August 2013 for some off road training in the Flinders Ranges in conjunction with Compass Expeditions.
