After running more than 1000km in the Merzouga Rally 2013, Ramon Brucart has explained us how his experience was during that 5 days and how Braktec helped him to achieve this goal.

Ramon, you finished the competition without problems, so could we understand all the Braktec products are ready for such a hard race?
– Yes, it was my first participation in a Raid, and all the Braktec material has been good; it’s been so demanding by the riders and motorcycles; from more than 100 riders starting the race, there were just 60 arriving to the end. This means that all the products are so prepared for the maximum demand; I never had any problem. This made me feel calm.

Which quality would you stand out of the material equipping your motorcycle?
– Its quality and reliability, because riders and teams didn’t have to be worried about the behavior or the working of the material; it was just extraordinary. They improve the conditions of the serial products, so you are better at driving.

The brake hoses have been designed exclusively for the racing, what could you tell us about them?
– The Motocross or the Raids are disciplines where the riders demand a lot to the motorcycles, and the brakes are such an important product, as they condition the driving: you can be more aggressive, or brake harder, and these brake hoses have solved me a lot of problems of overheating and air inside the hydraulic circuit. I can drive so quiet, as I know I won’t have any problem.

Due to high temperatures, neither front nor back brakes have been configured specially to resist them. How this has helped you?
– It helped me a lot. In the Raid, in the longest and most demand stages I saw some riders stopped with problems on the brakes, due they overheated so fast in the dunes. I know that because in the Raids, when you find someone standing up with problems, you should stop to help him, if it’s necessary.
We have done a great race, due important details like this one haven’t concerned me.

The new hydraulic clutch kit it’s been thought to offer a softer touch to the hand master cylinder. Did we get our objetive?
– Of course! The clutch has an incredible softness; when you spend so many hours riding the motorcycle, in such a demand level, you can feel it a lot. The physical fatigue is less than with a conventional clutch and the touch is amazing.

A lot of riders participate in the Merzouga Rally 2013 as something previous to run in the Dakar. If this happened to you, would you take Braktec with you again?
– Sure! I have experience enough to confirm quality and good working. And I know the good technicians and people behind the product, so I can guarantee their professionalism and the passion to Braktec. This is essential to work hard and make quality.
