Honda’s on form rider

Pablo Quintanilla left Husqvarna in May 2021 after five years riding for the Austrian brand. The Chilean promptly moved to Honda, swapping places with reigning Dakar champion Kevin Benavides, who had been recruited by KTM. After two seasons marred by injury following his spectacular crash on stage 10 of the 2019 Dakar, Pablo appeared to be rapidly at home on HRC's aluminium-framed 450 CRF Rally. On his first outing for his new team he finished third on the Andalucía Rally in May 2021 before winning the Rally of Morocco the following October, his first victory since Atacama in 2019. 2nd in the 2020 Dakar, 7th in 2021, the man from Valparaiso once again finished 2nd in Jeddah last January. Second also in the W2RC provisional standings, he has already won the world championship twice (2016-17). There are only two other riders to have won two world crowns in the last decade: Marc Coma (2012-14) and current defending champion Matthias Walkner (2015-21). Quintanilla is clearly the man on form in the Honda clan and hasn’t been off the podium for a year!
In Abu Dhabi, for the second round of the W2RC, Pablo finished on the third step of the podium behind his teammate Ricky Brabec and winner Sam Sunderland and is second in the provisional standings behind the GasGas official. The Chilean has a card to play in round 3 of the Andalucía Rally if he wants to close the 17-point gap. He was on the podium in last year's event and was comfortable on the Spanish tracks. Honda, who have been leading the manufacturers' standings since the start of the season, are also counting on him to maintain their advantage. The 'Reds' have 36 points, against 25 points for GasGas.
