Branch became the second rider from Botswana to participate in the grueling Dakar Rally in Peru, after Vincent Crosbie in 2017, and he did not disappoint.

He finished as the best rookie and despite facing challenges in attracting sponsorship in the build up to the race, he firmly put the country on the world map.

 “We did it! I honestly can’t put into words what this moment means to me... riding across the finish line of THE DAKAR RALLY as the first rookie and provisionally 12th overall! It took so much to get here but this moment makes everything worth

it!,” Branch said after his historic feat last night.

President Mokgweetsi Masisi did not waste time to congratulate the deserving Branch, a rider who has brutally dominated local and regional competitions.

“I would like to congratulate Botswana’s Ross Branch -Kalahari Ferrari for winning the 2019 Dakar Rally Rookie Award at the world’s most toughest race, the Dakar Rally, after his 12th place overall finish.

“Well done, we’re extremely proud of you. Continue flying the Botswana flag high on the world stage!,” the President said in a Twitter message.
