This will be a battle against long distances and navigational challenges without any support or back-up crew.
Overcoming all obstacles in my way and riding onto the podium at the finish line after completing the world’s toughest rally race in one piece is my ultimate dream and mission.
Registered and ready to go!

Donovan ready for Dakar 2020
The Daring Adventure started back in 1992, when the Dakar route saw itself finish on the Southern African shores. Donovan van de Langenberg fondly remembers how he and his father watched the end of this iconic (and arguably, toughest) motoring race in the world.
Make a Malle Moto Dream – a Reality.
The Dakar is more than just a race, it’s a test of the limits of the human spirit. Showing that anything is possible if you work hard and put your mind to it.
What is Malle Moto?
When you take away the mechanics, all the support vehicles, preparation times, precision tools, proper sleep and a comfortable bed…
The Dakar Rally – Malle Moto Class.
Why the Malle Moto Class?
As a “Malle Moto” entrant I will have no such luxuries, and will have to face all challenges, obstacles, physical/mental/technical burdens, each and every day, completely by myself.
And I believe I am ready to do just that.
What is Still Needed?
I am a just a regular Joe with a kickass dream, the funds to get to the Dakar are probably the biggest hurdle…..
“But I am committed to succeed!” – Donovan
Countdown to the 2021 Dakar Rally
Invest in a South African Dakar Rider
I want the rallying community and the larger community of Dakar enthusiasts in South Africa, to get involved with my journey towards reaching Dakar.
I want them to feel like they’re on this ride with me and I’m offering many ways that people can get involved!
