Incontestable victory of Francisco "Chaleco" López in the third stage of Dakar 2013 after yesterday he was sunk in the classification and today he had to start from the thirtieth position. But sometimes, going so far back has its advantages, especially when the stage is important for navigation, something that hurt those who started in the first positions.
Among them spanish Joan Barreda or his teammate Matt Fish, who with hardly any mistakes but with a much more cautious driving than that of the Chilean, today they were the ones who lost a lot of minutes at the finish line. To give us an idea, at kilometer 39 the leading group rolled at 50 km / h while "Chaleco" passed through that same point a little later at 100 km / h. And the fact is that the stage, with a lot of sand in the special of almost 250 kilometers and with a very complicated first part, has not made things easy for the pilots.
Another who has managed to take advantage of leaving more behind has been the French Cyril Despres, which is the result of his third place in the stage behind the Portuguese Paulo Gonçalves, rises to the top of the provisional general classification. The best Spanish of today has been Gerard Farrésseventh, almost seven minutes behind the Chilean, while Jordi Viladoms, who lost 12 minutes on the stage, is still the best Spaniard overall in eighth position just over nine minutes away.
Joan Barredto go from leading the provisional general classification to being now more than 20 minutes from Cyril Despres. The French in turn leads Francisco "Chaleco" López in 02:51 and almost five minutes to the Norwegian Ullevalseter.
On carsAfter the claim that Carlos Sainz made yesterday for a GPS problem, today he was in the lead but like the bikes, it was not good to command the peloton. Your partner Nasser Al Attiyah he beat the stage with Gordon and Peterhansel next. Precisely the latter is the leader, as you can read in the Chronicle of Motorpasión F1
