By profession, an Industrial Design Engineer, Margot has bet her whole life on competitive sport.

Adventurous and tenacious, what has motivated him the most has been to measure himself outside of her comfort zone. At just 17 years old, she embarked on her first car rally in Morocco, the Panda Raid as a co-driver, finishing in a very good position. From that moment on she began her fixation on having adventures in the desert. She learned to ride motorcycles at the age of 18 with a very clear goal: to one day participate in the toughest rally in the world, the Dakar Rally. During all this time she has participated in the World Cup of Casualties and in the most demanding Rally-Raids: Merzouga Rally,

1000 Dunas, Hellas Rally… riding and sailing with her bike all over the world and on all kinds of surfaces.

New Sponsorship: Margot Llobera

Grip-on Tools has reached a sponsorship and tool supply agreement with the very young Andorran pilot Margot Llobera (1996).

Margot Llobera

Margot has practiced countless sports throughout her still short life, but it was not until she was 17 that she found her passion: adventure motorcycling. And what greater adventure than the Dakar? Although this 2021 she will not be in the departure of Jeddah, she hopes to be able to take part in a short period of time. In the meantime, she hopes to gain more experience aboard her KTM to be able to tackle the adventure as well prepared as possible by participating in tests on both national and international soil.

 

Since 2017 it has achieved a more than remarkable results, highlighting the 3rd place in women´s category of the prestigious Merzouga Rally in Morocco in 2019 and the 1st places in the same category in the 1000 Dunes in 2018 and 2019, in addition to the 7th and 5th place respectively in the general clasification.

 

 

 

 

For this 2020 and with an eye on the Dakar race of 2022, a demanding calendar had been set with participation in Baja Extremadura, Baja Aragón, Rally Morocco, 1000 Dunes and the enduro and resistance championships of Spain, Catalonia and Andorra. In addition to that, she has planned specific training sessions in Morocco in which to work on both navigation and driving style in the desert dunes, a task that is always difficult and even more so when done on a motorcycle.

ROAD to Dakar 2021

Grip-on Tools has reached a Sponsorship and Tool supply agreement with the Prado Moya Racing team, a young and ambitious team that is aiming for the 2021 Dakar, to be held in Saudi Arabia from January 5 to 17.

The team has Yago de Prado (1973) as pilot and Álvaro Moya (1994) as co-pilot and navigator; Also note the advice of Luis Moya, ex-co-driver of Carlos Sainz with whom he won the WRC world championships in 1990 and 1992.

 

 

 

 

Yago has extensive experience in different competitions, from karting in its beginnings, to sailing, achieving numerous positions of honor in prestigious events on the calendar and now in the Rally Raid, a competition in which he began his career together with Álvaro in 2019.

The year of their debut in the raids, they competed on the CERTT calendar, in which they managed to finish second in their category in Mar de Olivos, Aragón and Guadalajara, as well as finishing in the same position in the general of the Yamaha Open Cup.

For this 2020, they had planned an ambitious route plan with which to gain experience facing one of the toughest raids, if not the most, in the world: the Dakar 2021. For this, they had planned to run the prestigious Merzouga rallies, Baja Aragón and the Rally of Morocco, but the global situation caused by Covid-19 has canceled these tests, leaving the Rally of Andalusia as one of the few occasions to test the SSV in competition prior to the big event in January.

The Honest Carpenter – Ethan James

THE HONEST CARPENTER by Ethan Daniel James, a professional tradesman and writer in Raleigh, NC.

Having spent much of his life working as a carpenter throughout North Carolina, Ethan eventually realized that the number one problem facing homeowners was a lack of access to credible advice. Disheartened by what he saw as increasingly unethical standards in residential construction, he began to imagine ways that he could provide homeowners with the support they needed to maintain their homes and avoid predatory contracting practices.
