We are in the final stretch of the Dakar 2018. Today's stage between San Juan and Córdoba continues to show that anything can happen and the favorites continue to measure their faces at every opportunity.
Today the winner of the stage has been Toby Price. The KTM rider has gone out of his way, opening the track and without making mistakes he has managed to get rid of the pressure that Antoine Meo put on him during the first stage of the special special. By taking the exit in the second he has not given any option, to anyone.
Benavides presses but cannot with Price
The only driver who has tried to overshadow Price has been Kevin Benavides. The Argentine has tried by all means to win on his land by shortening distances checkpoint after checkpoint, but a last relentless push from the Australian driver has prevented him from opting for victory and he has finally stayed at 2'03 ''.
The third position has finally been awarded Antoine meo. Price's teammate rode very hard although he lost steam as the stage progressed. Without surprises, the fourth position today has been for Matthias walkner, who is playing his tricks without risking, maintaining a comfortable leading position in the general classification that he continues to maintain with a cushion of 22 minutes, although today he finished more than 10 behind the leader.
Ricky brabec, another member of the Monster Energy Honda team has also had to leave after being trapped for hours with mechanical problems on his motorcycle just over 50 kilometers from the start of the special.
