Nasser Al Attiyah mounted his first successful title defence, bringing his tally to five Dakar wins after his victories in 2011, 2015, 2019 and 2022.

 

"We just finished and I'm so happy. It was a difficult Dakar for everyone. It's crazy to manage to defend my title. I'm very happy to win five times, and Mathieu four… Sorry, Mathieu! I respect Ari enormously, he's still my idol. I always want to win more and more, now I want to defend my world champion's title. We didn't have to attack like crazy. We managed to get through the second week and win the Dakar at the end, that's what really matters."
