Dakar Rally participation

In her first attempt to finish the Dakar rally she was involved in a life-threatening accident which stopped her from completing the course.

Her husband Clive Dredge (who himself has over 40 years motorcycle experience) was part of the four man back up team which accompanied her Dakar attempt Quick was sponsored by more than a dozen organisations including KTM who supplied the bike on which she rode. In the documentary Race to Dakar, Quick suggested her success in 2006 had cost her more than £150,000
