At the Dakar, unexpected events are always around the corner, especially for those making their debut in a rally raid, like Danilo Petrucci. You need to know how many risks to take, take care of your bike, not get lost, but there are also more practical problems, so to speak…

Petrux, in a live broadcast on his Instagram channel, spoke of the need to keep one's physiological needs at bay. It goes without saying that, in a whole day in the saddle, the body needs a few breaks.

The rider from Terni, with his usual irony, confessed how the bladder is sometimes an element to be taken into consideration.

"Keeping it in throughout the stage is impossible, so as with the fuel you have to do your calculations well" he joked.

More experienced pilots have already found solutions.

"Some use a tube that runs down the boot, after the first special I wanted it as well! I kept it in for 100 km," said Danilo with his usual lightness.

In life you never stop learning.
