“Born on February 16, 1980 – the doctor said, ‘Children born in winter are more resilient.’ Resilient indeed. His mother could not have known that her only son would fill this word to the brim. As a child who lost his father at an early age, he extended his youth years due to financial difficulties to reach one of his biggest dreams, his motorcycle. It’s crucial for a family to support in every aspect, especially in choices. However, he did not know that his brother would support him differently in his racing career. If he knew, there wouldn’t have been so many fights at home over that first motorcycle forced upon him. Since his teenage years, he has been running on the challenging paths of professional life.
Dakar, a dream for every motorcycle racer, is now more frequently mentioned. Having raced in short rallies until then, the idea of even considering participating in the longest and most challenging race, spanning over 10,000 km and crossing three countries, was both chilling and exciting.

Dakar, spanning 9600 km in Argentina, Chile, and Bolivia, with desert and continental climate transitions, minimal sleep, low nutrition, and battling mechanical and psychological problems in harsh conditions. And finally, he was looking at the Dakar medal, something money couldn’t buy, something you wouldn’t exchange for anything, shining with golden letters at the peak of your motorcycle racing career, making motor enthusiasts from the other side of the world know you. He looked again. It had happened. Serkan was now completing Dakar and returning to his country with indescribable pride…
With love and two wheels,
