Races 2 Places and Dakar 2018


Konflict Motorsports Supports Lyndon Poskitt’s 2017 Races2Places Campaign and 2018 Dakar Rally

Konflict Motorsports services Poskitt’s suspension for his Races2Places tour and the Dakar Rally

Kent, WA December 11th, 2017


Konflict Motorsports, a suspension service provider, specializing in adventure and off-road motorcycles, has been supporting Lyndon Poskitt this year as he travels the globe training, preparing and racing rally events, ultimately ending with the 2018 Dakar Rally. Poskitt’s unique and utilitarian approach to preparing for the Dakar Rally has him riding an adventure bike from race to race in a self-sustained manner, crisscrossing continents and countries. The tour is called “Races2Places,” and has a cult-like following among rally enthusiasts. As of this writing, Poskitt has crossed 88 borders, covered 112,512 miles and spent 1,155 days riding in both remote and urban environments since the inception of his worldwide touring and racing program. He has competed in seven rally events and is currently making final preparations for the 2018 Dakar Rally, beginning on January 6th in Lima, Peru. Poskitt’s campaign places severe demands on his suspension; performance and reliability equally critical, and Konflict Motorsports has earned his trust. 

The 2018 edition of the Dakar Rally traverses Peru, Bolivia, and Argentina, covering 5590+ miles over 14 stages. Poskitt competes in the “malle moto” class, regarded as one of the most difficult and purest of classes. Riders must perform all service work by themselves, with everything required coming out of a small official foot locker type container. Other teams are allowed to haul tires, mousses and spare parts, as it is impossible to fit them in the regulation container. FIM officials closely monitor the riders doing service work at the bivouacs, where malle moto riders must sleep in tents.

This independent, self-sufficient style of both Races2Places and the Dakar malle moto class has earned Poskitt respect from fans and fellow competitors, and in turn, he feels the same respect for Konfict Motorsports’ suspension services. Having suspension custom designed for his particular riding style, speed, ability, and preferences allows him to perform comfortably at his limits, while the dependability of the work and installed components keeps him moving forward during his worldly travels and races.

Lyndon Poskitt: “I am excited to be in the last stages of preparation for the 2018 Dakar Rally and have been impressed with the performance of my Konfict Motorsports WP suspension, which has performed admirably both during my 2107 Races2Places tour and the races I’ve run thus far. I expect nothing but the same during the Dakar: stellar performance and reliability. I cannot thank Alex and crew enough, it has been a pleasure working with them, and I look forward to flying the Konfict Motorsports flag during the Dakar in the malle moto class.”

Alex Martens, owner/operator, Konfict Motorsports: “I have thoroughly enjoyed supporting Lyndon during his around the world tour and look forward to his Dakar effort in the malle moto class. Lyndon demands a lot from his bike, suspension included, and it’s been an honor to be able to provide the level of service and performance he deserves. It has been fun following his Races2Places tour, and it will be exciting to see what he can do at the Dakar. Konflict Motorsports is proud to be a part of Lyndon’s efforts, both around the globe and in South America this coming January at the Dakar.”
