KTM’s Marc Coma Video

Marc Coma did not deliver his typical positive results during the 2013 season. The Red Bull KTM rider of Spain suffered a shoulder injury at the 2012 Rally of Morocco, and this began plaguing him almost immediately.

The injury also caused him to miss the 2013 Dakar Rally; riding in his place was the late Kurt Caselli, the American who took two stage wins aboard the KTM 450 Rally.

But three-time Dakar winner (2006, 2009, 2011) Coma is now ready to return to the top. He has spent much time practicing for the 2014 Dakar Rally, which begins Jan. 5 in Rosario, Argentina.

Red Bull recently created the attached video, which shows Coma prepping for the upcoming 35th edition of the Dakar Rally. Stay clicked to UltimateMotorCycling.com for daily coverage.
