Dakar champion in 500cc category and 2nd overall in quads classification.
Carlos Avendaño, with three appearances as a truck driver for mechanic assistance, used his experience in the Dakar and his knowledge of ATV trying his luck as a quad rider. He did pretty well and enjoyed great success and recognition.
His quad, a Suzuki LTR 450 with Chilly Racing preparation, reached Lago Rosa reaping the best results, even winning some stages.
All Chilly brand experience, like making large fuel tanks for greater autonomy and a strenghtened and higher steering stem, navigation tower, a-arm, long swing arm .... were some of the improvements for the quad.
