Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Toby Price is scheduled to arrive home this Sunday, fresh from picking up a second-career victory in the 2019 Dakar Rally, and fans are being encouraged to greet him on arrival at Brisbane Airport.

The 31-year-old captured a spectacular victory in Peru on Thursday and – now without his customary mullet hair-do courtesy of a lost bet with fellow KTM star Laia Sanz – Price is due home tomorrow afternoon.

If you would like to welcome Price home on arrival, his personal management crew at Owlpine Group have confirmed he will be flying in on Qantas QF524 at the Brisbane Domestic Terminal and is scheduled for Sunday, 20 January, at 12:30pm. Fans are being welcomed and encouraged to await his homecoming.

Price has delivered a list of remarkable results since debuting at Dakar in 2015, scoring third on debut before winning the 2016 edition. He was injured in 2017, but bounced back for third in 2018 and then went on to claim a gritty win in 2019 despite breaking his wrist a month prior to the race’s start.
