Michelin motorcycle's efforts in the 2011 Dakar Rally

Michelin- alongside its official partners KTM, BMW, Aprilia and Yamaha will compete with Michelin Desert Race tires developed specifically for the new 450cc bikes.  Michelin is also providing a second range of tires for the world's most demanding cross-country rally.  In addition to the Michelin Desert Race, riders of factory bikes will be able to use another development tire - the Michelin Marathon - for the race's longest stages. Developed several years ago, the tire remains a benchmark in terms of robustness and longevity.
