In 1985 two engineering students ENSM (School of mechanical engineering), Frédéric Rosset and Julian Eberhardt, they decide to make their internship with a project to participate in the Dakar. Supervised by Monsieur Barigo Patrick Barigault born new prototype with which to launch the challenge of the desert, the name leaves no doubt warlike intentions of two students: F1 Desert, precisely! The logo stands proudly on the windshield and the rear.
Two bikes from the highly developed technical innovations, but that which you don't know much, will be implemented on a Ducati Pantah (650CC and 750cc) and intuition to equip their bikes with v-twin that soon will mark the history of the competition, How were sighted the two drivers/students.
Despite little experience, Julien Eberhardt #46 behaves well until a fall that breaks the shoulder will put him out of the game, While Rosset #45 will reach Dakar, but out of.
