Aprilia has returned to challenge itself and to win on the desert dunes, on the very same routes that launched the legendary rally raids. The Africa Eco Race win marks a crucial milestone in the ambitious Back to Africa project, wrapping up a season packed with exciting successes.
Concluding the final stage ahead of the Botturi/Yamaha pairing, direct opponents for the final victory, Jacopo Cerutti and Aprilia Tuareg won the 2024 Africa Eco Race.
An absolute triumph, in a gruelling race over six thousand kilometres long, always led by the Italian team. Cerutti and Tuareg were first in the overall standings for the entire race, right from the first stage.
It is an extraordinary result for Aprilia Tuareg which, at its absolute debut in the great African rallies, thus dominated against bikes and riders of great value, who could boast great experience and preparation on the African tracks.
The Aprilia riders approached the race with confidence from the start, armed with a bike that had already proved to be a formidable weapon. Winning the special stages of the first two days allowed Cerutti to build up an advantage over the extremely strong rivals.
For Francesco Montanari, a true rookie, finishing the race in Dakar was a fantastic result. To this, he added two podiums in as many legs and a fabulous eighth place overall.
Together they dominated and wrote one of the most epic pages in the recent history of big African raids.
