Lutterworth Sports Centre man following dream to Dakar Rally

Lutterworth Sports Centre is sponsoring local man, Richard Main (53), by allowing him free use of its facilities to get in shape for 2019’s Dakar Rally.

Richard, an agricultural engineer, has had a lifelong dream to enter the iconic race, and following the final words of his mother - “I love you son, follow your dreams” - as she sadly passed away last year - he’s going all out to be ready for next year’s staging of the event, which takes place in Peru, starting on January 6th.

In a racing career dating back over 40 years, competing all over the British Isles, Richard has seen most of what off-road racing has to offer, but the Dakar Rally is going to be a whole new world of challenges, and fitness-wise, he’s going to need to be at the top of his game.

Richard said:

“I’d like to thank everyone at Lutterworth Sports Centre for their support. I’ve been using the centre since 2010, firstly to help me recover from hip replacement surgery by attending spin classes, but I now mainly use it for the pool, as this is one of the best exercises to help me get ready for the massive challenge ahead.

“My partner, Jo has always been there for me, so I’d like to thank her for putting up with all that’s involved in my pursuit of this dream. I’ve promised Jo that when I get back from the rally, we’re going to get married!

“My mum knew how much this event meant to me, and her final words are spurring me on to be ready for the big start in January.”

Abigail Boulton, Sales Manager for Harborough District Leisure Trust, which runs Lutterworth and Harborough Leisure Centre said:

“It’s great that we’ve been able to help out Richard by allowing him free use of the facilities to prepare for the race. The Dakar Rally is one of those evocative sporting events, which you never imagine people you’ve actually met taking part in. So, for Lutterworth Sports Centre to have a member going to Peru to compete in 2019 is a proud moment for the centre.

“We wish Richard all the best. And we would like to wish Jo, his partner, all the best in arranging the wedding when he gets back from Peru!”

The 2019 Dakar Rally in Peru will be the first time in its history that the race has been staged entirely in one country. It will consist of 10 stages and 1 rest day, finishing in the capital city of Lima on January 17th 2019.
