Hello Guys i’m

Francisco Arredondo

I was fascinated by running in Saudi Arabia in 2020. It was a bit of a complicated experience, because I was coming from an injury in another discipline, but at the same time I enjoyed it because I discovered the country together with other competitors. In addition, I traveled with my wife and my father, who are my support in this activity.

The opportunity to join the BAS world KTM racing team is exceptional and allows me to fulfill a dream that I have had for many years. I ran the Rally of Morocco together with extremely talented drivers and beyond the result, I have a good feeling. I am going to intensify my training in the Californian desert, with a focus on navigation. My goal is to achieve a great result for Guatemala. For this I will fight until the last day
