2014 Dakar Rally – Stage 2

Written by:

06/01/2014

Stage 2 took competitors from San Luis to San Rafael – 725km in total with 366km of liaison and 359km of timed special.

During the 359km special riders had their first encounter with the grey sand dunes of Nihuil – about 65km of it.  Even Cyril Despres had a moment where he went over the handlebars and saw some stars for a while.  After composing himself he went on his way again, but lost some valuable time.

The stage was full of incidents.  Despres’s crash caused his camelback to burst, forcing him to ride without any water for the last 100km.  Pal Anders Ullevalseter had a mechanical problem with his KTM at kilometer 290 which he was unable to repair, forcing him to withdraw from the rally.  Joan Bort Barreda had a run-in with some cows, causing him to fall and damage the bike’s navigational tower.

Honda rider Sam Sunderland clocked the fastest time of the day, coming in after 03h42m10s.  Barreda Bort was 2 minutes slower.  Despres crash caused him to loose almost 9 minutes.

Overall standings after the second stage:
