A Fistful of Trophies with Red Bull Desert Wings

With the 2014 Dakar Rally only two months away, Red Bull is starting to market its top riders that compete in the famed endurance event, including five-time Dakar winner Cyril Despres and three-time Marc Coma.

The reigning Dakar Champion, who will pilot a Yamaha 450 Rally in 2014, recently appeared in the energy drink’s latest video with his fellow counterparts in the “Red Bull Desert Wings” team. The video provides a hilarious insight to the personalities behind the Red Bull Desert Wings team.

Speaking of the new “Fistful of Trophies” video, Marc Coma says: “You know the Dakar’s getting very close when Red Bull bring out their pre-race video, and if the quality of the production is anything to go by, it’s going to be a vintage year! Actually making the film was a lot of fun and it was good to spend some time with my rivals, plus some great champions from other disciplines, away from the competition environment. Although the atmosphere was relaxed and there was plenty of joking around, there was also an awful lot of determination per square meter and you got the feeling that the 2014 edition is going to be particularly fiercely fought over!

“And I don’t think it is only the competition that is going to be tough. Tomorrow we will discover more details regarding the route, but already all the indicators are that ASO (Amaury Sport Organisation) have concocted an especially difficult course that will push all us, both amateurs and professionals alike, to the limit.”

In 2014, Despres will chase his third-straight Dakar title. All of his others were achieved aboard a KTM, the manufacturer his biggest rival still rides for – Marc Coma.
