The Husqvarna Factory Racing Team’s riders had their highs and lows in the 2017 edition of the Dakar Rally, with the annual, 9,000 km trek through South America proving to be an enormous test for both man and machine. French rider Pela Renet reached the finish in Buenos Aires safely on January 14 in seventh overall to achieve a remarkable top 10 result in only his second edition. Pablo Quintanilla was forced to retire in stage 10 while in second overall and on target for a podium finish.
