ROCKSTAR ENERGY HUSQVARNA FACTORY RIDER PABLO QUINTANILLA GAVE HIS TEAM AND THE BRAND SOMETHING TO CELEBRATE ON SATURDAY WHEN HE TOOK THE OVERALL VICTORY IN THE ATACAMA RALLY AFTER FIVE DAYS OF TOUGH DESERT RIDING IN CHILE.

IT WAS NOT ONLY A MEMORABLE FIRST VICTORY FOR HUSQVARNA MOTORCYCLES IN INTERNATIONAL RALLY COMPETITION BUT ALSO A POPULAR WIN FOR QUINTANILLA’S FANS AT HOME IN CHILE.

Wrapping up the five stages in a combined time of 11:48.38 hours, Quintanilla was fastest rider home in the final 100km of sand dunes, finishing the stage in 58.51 minutes. This gave him the overall win by just 29 seconds from second-placed Toby Price of Australia, the winner of the 2016 Dakar Rally. Joining them on the podium was Kevin Benavides of Argentina, whose combined time was 9.35 minutes behind Quintanilla.

As an added bonus, Quintanilla now heads the leader board in the FIM World Cross-Country Rallies Championship going into the final Round Five, the Oillibya Rally of Morocco (October 1-7). Quintanilla leaves Chile with 66 points, three ahead of KTM factory rider Sam Sunderland. Toby Price, who had to withdraw from the Sealine Rally through injury, now has 50 points.
