For the third consecutive year, BRP (TSX: DOO; NASDAQ: DOOO) outpaced the competition at the renowned Dakar Rally – the world’s toughest race – with its Can-Am Off-Road vehicles. In addition to winning the side-by-side vehicle category, Can-Am vehicles crossed the finish line in all of the top 20 positions, dominating the competition from start to finish.
BRP is known for its superior product innovation, performance and reliability, which is why riders across the globe choose Can-Am Off-Road vehicles, whether someone needs a ride that’s tougher and works harder on a ranch, or a racer who pushes the limits of man and machine.
The Can-Am Maverick lineup is designed from the rider down to enhance those limits, which was on display recently at the 2020 Dakar Rally, a grueling 9,000 km, 12-day race through the Saudi Arabian desert. The rally attracts the best drivers and teams from across the globe, racing the most impressive off-road vehicles available. And Can-Am lived up to the task, performing incredibly well and overcoming the harsh conditions throughout.
