Basic Bio

It would take Joey Evans 10 years, with numerous challenges, successes and lessons learnt along the way, until on the 2nd of January 2017, Joey stood as a competitor on the start of the 13 day, 9000km Dakar Rally in Asunción, Paraguay.

Qualifying to race the Dakar Rally was an incredible achievement in itself but the unimaginable events that he endured through those 9000km across South America tested him far beyond what even he could have imagined.

The unforeseen and catastrophic event of his bike being crushed by a two ton rally car on the second last day, set the stage for an epic final chapter, you simply couldn’t make up.


Since racing the Dakar Rally, Joey has written the book on his inspirational journey titled “From Para to Dakar.” Published in November 2017, it has become a National Bestseller and is available in print, eBook and audio.

He was awarded “National Off Track Rider Of The Year” by the South African Guild of Motoring Journalists and later honoured by Motorsport South Africa with the “Special Award for Outstanding Contribution to South African Motorsport.”

His journey has been a top featured story on Carte Blanche, SuperSport and widespread international publications.
