KTM Open link in a new window being the lead motorcycle manufacturer for the Dakar Open link in a new window race usually has the best photos. Since about half of the motorcycle field consists of KTM, chances are that many photos will have a KTM in it.

Instead of taking the Dakar press releases you'll have seen already on many sites, I've decided to show the photos I receive from KTM and other sources. So here are Day 2 of the famous Dakar in pictures.

Enjoy. (note: Most photos can be expanded by clicking on them after the whole page has loaded)

Here is what Cyril Despres had to say about Day 2: "The first part of the special was very fast and starting 12th this morning I was a little concerned of getting stuck in everybody’s dust. As it turned out my ‘colleagues’ were all very considerate and let me through with virtually no hold up. Then I made a micro-error in the dried up bed part of the special and dropped the bike – fortunately without damage. The final part of the day was a short, 12 kilometres of so section, of dunes. By the time we got to them it was really hot, about 40 degrees, and the bike cut out a couple of times. Despite that I am pretty happy with how the day went. Apparently I still know how to turn the throttle in the right direction!"
