DAKAR ONLINE: Michek finished 11th, Tůma is moving, Loprais and Prokop in big trouble

Bikers proved that it will be a drop in Wednesday’s erzeta. Winner Toby Price covered 374 kilometers in three hours and five minutes! Martin Michek was only seven minutes slower and finished 11th. Jan Brabec was 29th and Milan Engel 32nd. Frenchman Adrien van Beveren is in the lead.

“The special was very hard, challenging. Very fast at first, but the last 80 kilometers were worth it because it was in the mountains. It wandered a lot. That’s why I chose a slightly lighter pace, focused on navigation to hit it all. “It paid off,” Michek said.

ATV Zdeněk Tůma is fifth, but due to the resignation of American Copetti, he has virtually moved into fourth place overall.

Aleš Loprais, on the other hand, is missing. His truck stood a few miles behind the start and is losing. Martin Macík then confirms the fast pace from Tuesday’s stage and is sixth at the 213th kilometer. He is less than two minutes away from the first Sotnikov!

However, Martin Prokop also has serious problems. He is also standing on the route. He has not yet passed the checkpoint at the 213th kilometer and will lose significantly. Stéphane Peterhansel won the stage, but Nasir al-Attiya continues with a comfortable lead of less than 33 minutes.
