Bahco is pleased to support Mário Patrão in its exhausting race in South America. Mario will take part of the new edition of the famous rally race of the 2017 DAKAR.
Mario had to wait until 2013 to discover the Dakar. He is one of the most talented Portuguese enduro and offroad specialists who claimed over 20 national titles. He finished 30th in 2013 and 36th in 2014. In 2015, Mario had to abandon at 10th stage as mechanical issues happened. Last year edition was succesful, as he finished 13th and 1st at the Marthon class. This year, he'll come back with great expectations, as he will ride a new KTM 450 RR.
