Dakar KTM Muddy
Heavy rain on today's track...very muddy roads       (c) van Oers J.

Under normal circumstances this route is a pretty tough one already, but today a sandstorm and rain made it even more difficult.

Jordi Viladoms
(KTM Repsol) proved to be fully recovered of the leg injury with which he began the Dakar. The young Spaniard won the stage, his first victory on the Dakar, and was very happy with his achievement. ‘My leg is okay, I’m fit and I feel strong. The camelgrass was difficult. It was rock hard, because of the rain.

Dakar KTM Cyril Despres
Despres hard to recognize due to the mud         (c) van Oers J.

Frans Verhoeven
(KTM Gauloises) clocked a fifth time, his equal best result. ‘My top speed in the second part of the special was 183 km/h. Not bad, since I gave my rear brake pads to Cyril Despres. I kept on attacking all day and kept my pace high. I was together with fellow KTM-riders Giovanni Sala and David Casteu and lead them trough the camelgrass. I had a great day.’

Dakar KTM Giovanni Sala
Today's highest jump comes from Giovanni Sala          (c) van Oers J.

Frans Verhoeven
(KTM Gauloises) clocked a fifth time, his equal best result. ‘My top speed in the second part of the special was 183 km/h. Not bad, since I gave my rear brake pads to Cyril Despres. I kept on attacking all day and kept my pace high. I was together with fellow KTM-riders Giovanni Sala and David Casteu and lead them trough the camelgrass. I had a great day.’
