Toby Price wins fourth Finke

2 years ago | Photos: Moving Pictures

KTM Desert Racing Team’s Toby Price scored victory at the 2015 Tatts Finke Desert race, celebrating 40 years of the iconic Australian event.

Price, who has three previous Finke victories to his credit (2010, 2012 and 2014) made this year’s event a perfect one, scoring the fastest time in prologue before cleaning up both legs of the race. The victory wasn’t without its dramas, however, with Price riding with an injured ankle and also puncturing a tyre just prior to the last fuel stop.

“It was by far my toughest victory,” said Price. “Riding injured on both the way down to Finke and on the way back wasn’t easy.” When asked whether he would be back to attempt to equal Randall Gregory’s record of five Finke wins, Price said depending on his racing schedule that includes international events he would “give it a go” but suggested up-and-coming young riders would not make the task easy.

Price completed this year’s event in a total time of three hours, 52 minutes 54 seconds. In second place was Finke first-timer, Price’s teammate Tye Simmonds, who described the conditions as “tough, stupid and the craziest race he’d ever run” but vowed he would be back.

The final place on the podium was filled by Active8 Yamaha’s Josh Green.
