Dakar hero Price returns to spectacular bike salute in Australia

Shock 2019 Dakar winner Toby Price has made a spectacular homecoming to Australia, including a unique bike salute out the front of Brisbane Airport.

Dakar hero Price returns to spectacular bike salute in Australia

The KTM rider secured an unexpected second Dakar crown in Peru last week, braving a broken wrist throughout the gruelling rally raid.

The scale of that achievement was recognised in fitting fashion at Brisbane Airport on Sunday, a huge turn out of fans putting on a hero's homecoming for Price.

It even included a traffic-stopping bike salute.

According to Price, support from back home was huge motivation as he battled with fitness throughout the event.

"It was tough times; I definitely didn't want to wake up the next day and continue," he told news crews.

"But the support from everyone back here in Australia was enormous and I couldn't quit on them and I couldn't quit on the team."

Price is now set to undergo scans to determine if his right scaphoid, initially broken during pre-Dakar training last December, has sustained any further damage while in the Peruvian dunes.
