2011 Dakar Video
For the second day in a row, KTM 450 Rally rider Marc Coma took home a victory for Spain at the 2011 Dakar Rally in Argentina. And just like yesterday, his fellow KTM rider Cyril Despres followed him in second.
But Coma still didn’t pass Despres in the overall rally after Stage 4; Despres leads by a mere two seconds overall. This official YouTube video highlights Stage 4 at Dakar, as the motorcycle field traveled from Argentina to Chile through the Andes Mountains.
Taking the remaining top five Wednesday were Francisco "Chaleco" Lopez (Chile, Aprilia), Olivier Pain (France, Yamaha) and Helder Rodriguez (Portugal, Yamaha), respectively.
