Canadian - Patrick Beaule heading to Dakar 2013 sponsored by KTM

Patrick Beaule (who hails from Montreal, Canada) will be heading to the 2013 Dakar and he's got a lofty goal... To become the first Canadian to finish the Dakar on both two wheels AND four wheels. 

Don't count him out - he has already accomplished half of the goal having successfully completed the Dakar on four wheels as a navigator/co-pilot last year. For 2013 he's riding a KTM Rally 450.

He's got an impressive two-wheel resume to say the least so he's got a real shot at succeeding. Course- it is the Dakar and ANYTHING can happen.

You can follow him on his Facebook page HERE. NOTE - you may win an OGIO bag if you do!

KTM has just announced that they're going to be sponsoring Patrick in fact! Full details below:

Patrick Beaulé today announces official support from KTM Canada for his Dakar 2013 effort. KTM as a motorcycle manufacturer is known for its race-ready motorcycles, and is synonymous with dominance in the Dakar Rally.

“As a racing company, KTM Canada is proud to have someone so driven like Patrick Beaule working for us and we fully support his dream to race Dakar,” says KTM Canada’s General Manager, Florian Burguet. “Patrick is quite active at the grassroots and national racing level in Canada; his energy and passion for endurance racing is second to none and his accomplishments speak for themselves. He’s an excellent role model for any racer! Considering his commitment, mental strength and experience, we are positive Patrick will earn a great result at his very first Dakar on two wheels.”

Beaulé underscores the importance of the KTM Canada deal. “KTM Canada’s sponsorhip for the 2013 Dakar really boosts our effort and prospects in the Dakar. Attracting KTM Canada reflects the hard work that our campaign has put in to develop a credible package that will bring value to all of our partners. Of course, everyone knows that I bleed Orange, and so having KTM Canada on board is also a natural fit for the whole team!”

To celebrate the announcement, KTM Canada is giving away an amazing, practical and stylish KTM branded OGIO gear bag to be drawn on October 15th from among all of Patrick’s Facebook page followers. Fans can get in on the draw simply by “liking” Patrick’s Dakar Facebook page - HERE. Anyone following the page by noon on October 15th will be entered into the draw. Fans can also follow Patrick through twitter on @PatBeaule.

Patrick Beaule is one of Canada’s most accomplished off-road motorcycle endurance racing champions. He holds an impressive list of titles: three Canadian Motorcycle Association (CMA) National Enduro Pro-class titles; one Canadian Enduro Championship (CEC) E1 Pro title; three Off-Road Ontario Provincial Enduro Pro-class titles; and, two prestigious International Six-Day Enduro (ISDE ) silver medals (Chile and New Zealand). In addition to these titles, Beaule has also won the infamous Corduroy Enduro in the Pro-class four times, was 3 times team Pro-class 12-hour endurance event winner in Quebec, and twice Pro-class 24-hour endurance ice-race team winner in Alberta. He is a finisher of the grueling DAKAR rally in 2012, and the 1st ever finishing automotive-class navigator in Canadian history
