2014 Dakar Rally – Stage 8

Written by:

13/01/2014

Stage 8, the second leg of the marathon stage, saw five time Dakar winner, Cyril Despres, picking up his first stage win for the 2014 event.  The Yamaha rider did not have a very good run this year, but his performance during the day’s stage showed just why he has multiple titles behind his name.

Despres was fastest across the line – 2m10s ahead of Honda rider, Joan Barreda, and 2m16s in front of Marc Coma on his KTM.  Sherco riders, Juan Pedrero, who won stage 4, and Alain Duclos, winner of stage 6, both had some mechanical issues.  Pedrero came in 14 minutes behind Despres while Duclos lost almost 35 minutes.

Overall standings for the podium positions remain exactly the same as for the previous day:
