Interview with Marc Coma: The Dakar warrior returns with a fifth trophy

KTM’s Marc Coma took an incredible fifth victory at the 2015 edition of the Dakar rally and it was also the orange manufacturer’s 14th consecutive win at the race credited with being one of the toughest in the world. Almost two weeks after the event and Coma is jubilant, but visibly tired after numerous interviews and celebrations as he returned to his home place in Avià, Spain. We caught up with the Dakar-man to talk about the feat he conquered this year and his reflection on the race after returning home.
