Week 2 of the Dakar Rally has kicked off with an impressive ride from Mathieu Doveze securing a stage win in the rally 2 class! A strong day for Toni Mulec and Bradley Cox, as Toni was only a few minutes shy of being in the top 3, and un unfortunate navigation mistake for Brad had him further back than he would’ve liked, after being fastest in the opening km’s of the special. Yoshio Ikemachi and Tomas de Gavardo, as always having a solid ride, bringing it back safely to the bivouac.
Though a day of mixed emotions as the start of Week 2 has claimed another one of our riders. Paolo Lucci has had a strong performance throughout the rally, which saddens us to see his Dakar end early. He is however okay and we wish him a speedy recovery.
