The title holder in the SxS category managed to reach the finishing line and complete the entire stage route, one minute behind Rodrigo Moreno, with whom he is battling for the podium.

“It’s always a bit discouraging when a special is neutralised. But the dust was so thick that I couldn’t see a thing. It was very difficult, there was dust everywhere. This stage will leave its mark in the history of the Dakar”.
