The three-time Dakar champion dominated today’s special from A to Z to claim his third stage win this year and seize the overall lead by 11″ over Stéphane Peterhansel.
“It wasn’t an easy stage. We lost a minute to an error, but we were hardly the only ones to make a mistake and we quickly got back on track. Opening up a gap is difficult, but today it was good to have my teammate Henk Lategan right behind me. That’s exactly what I need, a fast driver who can help me out.”
