But Aleksandr succeeded thanks to his great desire and his father’s huge experience.

Next to his own active career Aleksandr is also Anastasiya’s (Nifontova, earlier introduced) motocross coach. He will also support Anastasiya during the 2017 Dakar.

Aleksandr’s rally career started a few years ago after he won several Russian Cross Country Rallies. After that he wanted to take it to the next level: Dakar! For that he needed some more experience outside Russia. Last month he competed in the Atacama Rally in Chile, his first World Championship Rally, and with succes. He learned a lot about the official safety systems and navigation and finished without any major problems. Next month he will also compete in the Oilibya Rally in Morocco, to prepare in the best possible way for his 2017 Dakar.
