Price the Dakar champ

Yes, this involves a motorbike, not a car, but some achievements are simply too astonishing to ignore. And becoming the first Australian to win the gruelling Dakar Rally is just such an achievement. Toby Price, who hails from Singleton in New South Wales, took out the iconic two-week event in January aboard his KTM. In doing so, the 28-year-old cemented his place as Australia’s new off-road hero. The win capped off a miraculous career comeback for Price, who only three years earlier broke his neck in a riding accident.
