SPEEDCAFE SUMMER GRILL: The toughest of Dakar comebacks


2023 was a year of ups and downs for Andrew Houlihan.

What looked like an unbeatable lead in the Veterans class of the 2023 FIM Bajas World Cup turned into a second place after a low speed incident during training in Australia tore Andrew’s quadriceps tendon.

But Andrew plans a comeback, and on today’s episode of the Speedcafe / KTM Summer Grill he talks about his 2023 successes and disappointments, his recovery from the injury that cost him a win in the 2023 FIM Bajas World Cup and his plans for 2024.

With the start of the 2024 Dakar Rally just a few days away he gives us his thoughts on who the leading contenders are and drops a bombshell about his plans for the 2025 Dakar.
