It all started in Lima at the Las Palmas air base for technical and administrative scrutineering.
335 vehicles and 523 competitors started stage 1!
The shortest special on this 40th edition, only 31-km long, kicked off proceedings. Welcome to the dunes!
Crashes, stuck in the sand, struggles… YES! The competitors really got their fill of sand on the 2nd stage.
The results: after a reserved first stage and desptie Loed’s withdrawal, the PEUGEOT lions roar. Peterhansel is leading the race infront of his teammate Sainz. Behind them, 3 TOYOTA: Ten Brinke, Al-Attiyah (2 stages winner) and De Villiers.
In the bike race, title holder Sam Sunderland (KTM) was the fastest during the first 3 stages. Unfortunately, a fall on stage 4 made him drop out of the rally. To the advantage of, respectively, Benavides (HONDA), Van Beveren (YAMAHA), Walkner (KTM), Barreda (HONDA) and Price (KTM), who are all within 10 minutes of each other. The battle goes on!
In the mean-time, the trucks gobbled up hundreds of dunes, sometimes with a little difficulty…
It was an outstanding show in Perou with Lima, the ferias and the sand dunes.
Dakar’s Fervour continues in Bolivia with the finish of the stage 6 in La Paz received by Bolivian President Evo Morales.
