Kirsten Landman Does It, and has completed the Dakar 2023 Malle Moto, coming 2nd in the women’s classification, 12th in Malle Moto and 71st overall!
Saudi Arabia (16 January 2023) – Kirsten Landman has completed the Dakar 2023, and she has done it unsupported. We want to take the chance to wish her our congratulations! South Africa is incredibly proud of your achievement.
Kirsten Landman is a professional offroad and hard-enduro rider from Kwa-Zulu Natal, South Africa. She has been riding since the age of 8 and launched her professional career at the age of 22.
What started as just fun with her family, turned into Kirsten making history and a name for herself worldwide in the hard enduro racing scene! Competing in major international events, the talented rider became the first female to finish races such as Redbull Romaniacs, Redbull Sea to Sky, Redbull Megawatt 111, Redbull Braveman and the Roof of Africa.
She made her Dakar debut in 2020 and went on to become the first African woman to complete the Dakar in Saudi Arabia. After a break from the event, she returned in 2023 to do the race Malle Moto.
Malle Moto means a rider is completely unassisted. They are responsible for setting up camp each day, doing maintenance on their bikes or cars and all-around going it alone.
It is a tough event to take part in within Dakar but a very rewarding one!
Competitors doing Malle Moto can pack one Malle Trunk with all the equipment they will need to complete the Dakar. The trunk should contain spare parts, tools and equipment and personal belongings. There is also a size limit on the truck.
Each morning before the rider sets out on the next stage, they pack up their trunk and camp; the organisers then transport it to the next camp when they arrive at the end of the day.
