Putoline Oil and Mirjam Pol have recently signed a partnership, making Putoline Oil the exclusive lubricant partner of Mirjam Pol once again in 2022. In line with previous years, the cooperation will start with the Dakar Rally. The newly crowned World Champion Baja will start the 44th edition of the Dakar Rally on a new Husqvarna FR 450 Rally that has to take her from start to finish.
“Never change a winning team! The toughest rally in the world, the Dakar Rally, took place in Africa, in South America and will now be held in Saudi Arabia for the third time in January. I am proud that I was the only Dutch motorcyclist to finish the Dakar Rally on all three continents.
At the beginning of this year, I was not at the start of the Dakar, but instead, I participated in the World Championship Baja 2021 and managed to win that world title. When you ride your motorcycle on so many different terrains, you don't want to leave anything to chance. I always say: 'I do it right or I don't do it' and that attitude is also reflected in my partners, such as Putoline Oil.
Putoline Oil has been my loyal and trusted lubricant partner for years. Because I know what they're capable of, with short lines regarding communication, the same 'Twentse sobriety', and of course ensuring high-quality products with the latest technologies, they take over a big part of my preparation. And that gives me breathing space because the most important thing for a successful Dakar Rally is perfect preparation!"
On January 1, the 44th edition of the toughest rally, in the world will start with a prologue and the starting podium. Mirjam Pol will ride with number 40. Her lowest starting number since she has participated in the Dakar Rally, but it’s also a special number to her. The route in 2022 heads south, through the 'Empty Quarter', which is both sandy and mysterious. Surrounded by vast sand and chains of dunes, Mirjam must use her navigation skills to take advantage of the challenging landscape.
