The honours list of Kevin Benavides includes over 300 races, mainly in Enduro, which culminated with his fourth gold medal in the ISDE San Juan in 2014, the pinnacle of the rider’s career in the discipline. After a 'test' in 2015 in the Desafío Ruta, Kevin joins the Monster Energy Honda Team for the Dakar Rally 2017.

Kevin Benavides

Background

The rider’s brief rally history so far, has featured a 2015 participation in the Desafío Ruta 40; a fast-paced debut which in spite of ending with an accident, was enough to convince Team HRC to allow him to compete in the final round of the FIM Cross-Country Rallies World Championship of the same year – the OiLibya Morocco Rally. After a highly promising Dakar 2016, which confirmed his status as a rally rider, Benavides took part in the forthcoming South American rallies as part of Honda Argentina’s competition structure, the MEC Team, and joins the Monster Energy Honda Team for the Dakar Rally 2017.
