The Greek rider who made us proud in Saudi Arabia, Vassilis Boudros, successfully took the checkered flag at the Dakar 2024, completing his racing adventure which had several difficulties, but a happy ending, especially for the Dakar race.
Vassilis finished in the 58th place overall of the day, so he won the most honorable 81st place in the general classification of the Dakar Rally 2024, while in his category he was placed 20th.
It is worth noting that he participated in the Original by Motul category, the most difficult category of the race in which the participants have no help, so after each day’s driving they have to do maintenance, repairs and everything else required (preparation, setting up and taking down the tent, packing) by themselves!
Vassilis, in fact, did not have the easiest race, as during the 48-hour Marathon Stage he had a fall which forced him to extensive repairs to his motorcycle, but also caused a fracture in the middle of his left hand, while he avoided abandonment at least in three occasions during the rally. Despite all this, Vassilis did not give up and added another finish to his tally.
