As expected, the team wants to continue this impressive run while promoting the sport in India and abroad. As part of this initiative, the team has laid plans on identifying new riding talents and nurturing them into professional rally riders. The first rider under this initiative is the Spanish talent, Oriol Mena Valdearcos. Oriol has over 13 years of experience in the World Enduro Championship and 14 years in the Spanish Enduro Championship. Highlights of his career include becoming the Enduro Junior World Champion in 2009 and winning the International Six Days Enduro as a part of the Spanish Trophy Team in 2007, 2009 and 2010.
Oriol has completed two rallies so far. He made his debut at the Merzouga Rally in Morocco where he managed to finish 12th. In his next attempt at the Sardegna Rally in Italy, he earned an impressive 2nd place finish. The Spanish talent has already started training with the team for the upcoming Dakar 2018.
