Simon has been passionate about all types of bike since his early childhood and began his racing career in BMX at 6 years of age. He continued with MTB downhill which led him to motorsport. His first enduro race was set in 2008. In 2013 he became the European regional enduro champion. The very next year he participated in the Dakar Rally – his long-life dream – for the first time. Since then he has finished the Dakar Rally three times and took 7th, 8th and 13th place in the Original category."Mitas E-12 is the best tyre for the Dakar Rally, as it lasts longer and has better grip than any other."
