Salix Fruits, importer and exporter of fresh fruits, will participate in the 2022 edition of the Dakar, the famous rally-raid competition by supporting Matías Notti, an Argentinian rider running in the “motorcycles” category.
“This is my second Dakar and the second time that I have received the support of Salix,” said Notti. “It is a huge satisfaction to receive the support as a driver and because of the friendship of the company. Nowadays, more and more fruit growing and agro-industry companies support this kind of event because they have a high visibility.
For the second time, Salix Fruits is sponsoring Matías Notti, an Argentinian rider who races in the “motorcycles” category of the Dakar 2022.
For Salix, who has a very important market in the Middle East, the fact that the Dakar takes place in Saudi Arabia was decisive. “It is very important for us to support a runner like Matias, who is one of the five Argentines participating in this category this year”, says Juan Gonzalez Pita, CEO and founder of Salix, also a fan of this competition.

Notti says his goal for this race is “to arrive each day so that he can start the next one.” It is one of the most difficult tests in the world and therefore expectations need to be regulated. There are almost 1000 km per day. Therefore, reaching the end is already a feat, regardless of the position.
The Dakar 2022 started on January 2 and will go until January 14 with start and finish in Jeddah after 12 stages.
