Evo Morales Highlights Importance of Rally Dakar

Sainz trims Peterhansel's lead with first Dakar stage win

On stage six of the Dakar Rally the race moved on from Peru to Bolivia.

Unpredictable weather played the real cards yesterday and the first part of the 6th stage from Arequipa to La Paz had to be cancelled owing to bad weather and foggy conditions.

The next stage will see the rally moving to Arequipa where competitors will tackle the sands of Tanaka and a 30 or so km of mountain dune sections making up the longest stage yet, with 774 km to be covered including the liaison.

Spaniard Mena continued his solid run to finish the sixth stage at 23rd position and an overall 21st place. The Indian rider crashed out of the stage when he suffered a fall and broke his ankle close to the finish.

Regardless of what happens next, Monster Energy Honda's Joan Barreda showed that counting him out of the 2018 Dakar Rally was definitely premature.

Both Sherco TVS Factory Rally team and Hero MotoSports have already lost one rider each in the first two stages of the rally.

In all seriousness, sign that boy up to something Ms Kennedy! He said he still hasn't seen Ben Affleck as Batman . I have to confess I'm not a huge superhero film fan. "People seem surprised at that, I don't know why", he added.

Dakar debutant Oriol Mena, also competing for Hero MotoSports Team, finished 11th, his second top-15 stage finish.

"We did not have dust today so I knew it was my best chance to pass a few guys and I tried to make the most of the opportunity". Unfortunately, we're down to five Bike entrants, as Bryce Menzies, our sole auto competitor, cartwheeled his MINI vehicle in glorious fashion at the beginning of Stage 2. Overall good day and I brought the bike home.

"Today was a hard day due to rain so I made a decision to take it safe". I have my mind focused on making to the finish line at Cordoba so I did not want to commit any mistakes just before the half way mark. "I went all out, at very high speeds, and it went well. But we're here, and we are ready to go again for tomorrow".

Paraguayan Nelson Sanabria Galeano ended the day third fastest ahead of class leader Ignacio Casale, who now holds a forty-one minute and thirty seconds advantage over Alexis Hernandez heading into the rest day in Bolivia. The regulations in this stage do not allow riders to receive any assistance from the crew at their overnight halt at Uyuni.
