"We are so happy"

Jakub Przygoński turned in a solid performance to finish third in stage 3, right behind Stéphane Peterhansel and Nasser Al-Attiyah. The Pole now sits fifth overall, less than 15 minutes behind the leaders.

"Today we were overtaking and overtaking a lot of cars we passed. We are so happy. We got one puncture, but this is normal on this hard terrain. It was a real Dakar stage, with hard dunes, and a lot of stones... Navigation was not so easy, but we started in a great position, twelve, and we had the route quite clear. We went off-track twice, but we didn't lose too much time."
