Spanish BMW rider José Manuel Pellicer has won the 'Africa Race' rally on a G 450 X sport enduro.

José battled through Morocco, Mauritania and Senegal on a modified 450cc BMW to win the race that closely followed the old Dakar Rally route across approximately 7,500 kilometres of north African terrain. The race started in Marseille on 28 December and finished on 11 January in Senegal.

Despite the toughness of the opening trails, as well as having to lead the navigation though the African wilderness, José Manuel Pellicer's professionalism and outstanding riding ability shone through, as did the flawless performance of his BMW G 450 X. His excellent result was the first time that a 450cc motorcycle has won a rally raid in Africa, and what's even more remarkable is that his G 450 X BMW didn't even need a single part replacing throughout the rally's duration. All that was required was an oil change and filter cleaning.
