ORMHOF is proud to honor Ricky Brabec for winning the 2020 Dakar Rally, a 12 stage 5,600 mile trek across the sands of Saudi Arabia. Ricky also had success in the US in 2020, including the Vegas to Reno Open Pro title, his third victory in the longest off-road race in the United States.
Ricky has also earned victories in the deserts of Mexico, winning his third straight Sonora Rally in 2021. "The Sonora Rally was five days, five roadbooks. It was a long week," said Brabec. "It definitely felt longer than five days. But we made it to the end, no injuries and we made it to the top of the box."
2017 Archive: Ricky Brabec has wanted to ride motorcycles since as far back as he can remember. “I always raced BMX and jumped bicycles, and had a dirt bike around,” says Ricky, ‘I was introduced to desert racing in 2007 and immediately became addicted and knew I wanted to succeed in it.” And succeed he has. Ricky has won the SCORE Baja 1000, National Hair and Hound Assn (NHHA) Championship, and the Best in the Desert Championship. He signed up for his first Dakar Rally at just 24 years of age, and finished in the Top 10 overall. In 2015 Ricky suffered a race injury, breaking his neck. He came back stronger than ever, and has won another NHHA Championship, the Donors Rally, and Vegas to Reno.
