In four out of five stages so far in 2012 Dakar Rally, two men have equal wins – KTM’s Cyril Despres and Marc Coma.
This is no surprise considering the talent of these two KTM pilots – each have three-overall Dakar wins apiece, both having collectively taken the last six Dakar Rally victories in the motorcycle category.Here’s the rundown of stage winners so far in the 33rd Dakar Rally –
- Stage One – Francisco “Chaleco” Lopez – Aprilia
- Stage Two – Marc Coma – KTM
- Stage Three – Cyril Despres – KTM
- Stage Four – Marc Coma – KTM
- Stage Five – Cyril Despres – KTM
The latest stage – five – took riders from Chilecito to Fiambalá, but the special stage was shortened from 165 to 115 miles due to storm damage on the bike’s route. After taking his 28th-career stage victory, Despres ended the stage 1:41 over his main rival Coma.The Frenchman now holds a 9:50 lead over Coma, with Yamaha’s Helder Rodrigues 46:56 back in third, and Aprilia’s Chaleco
in fourth, 49:00 behind.Attached above are video highlights of Stage Five
