The first 11 SxS USE J.JUAN BRAKES

With only a single stage of 452km left between Yanbu and Jeddar, J.Juan can confirm that we have had another spectacular Dakar. And that’s three in a row!

The Can Am Maverick X3, that uses the special brake calipers of the Barcelonese company, have won 11 of the top 12 places in the general classification of the category T4.

Only Wayne Matlock, one of the great stars of America’s Side by Side, where he has conquered several low 1,000 mile races and several trials of the Best in The Desert, finished 12th  in his Polaris RZR. Matlock has “infiltrated” the top 20 with his RZR and is the only non-Can Am and only vehicle not using J. Juan Brakes to reach that group.

Likewise, the 11 stages contested so far have been dominated by four teams that use J. Juan Brakes.. South Racing Can Am has won 7 stages (Chaleco Lopez (6) and Khalifa Al Attitah). Monster Energy has won 4 stages (Austin Jones (2), Aron Domzala and Reynaldo Varela). One stage each has been won by FN Speed (Saleh Alsaif) and SNAG Racing Team (Sergei Kariakin).

Three out of three is a great success for J.Juan and also adds this triumph to those obtained in Superbikes (6 title) or Trial (16 Worlds). In the Dakar, particularly in each of the last three years, the mark of the double J’s has propelled 19 vehicles in the top 20.

Vehicles equipped with the J. Juan Kit have also won the light vehicle category, which also included prototypes.

An important note is that of the 29 vehicles that departed in the event with J.Juan brakes, 26 have reached the final stage.
