2006 Lisboa – DAKAR HIGHLIGTHS
• A sad Dakar
During the stage between Nouakchott and Kiffa, Australian Andy Caldecott, winner of the first African special of the year died after a heavy crash. For its return in Guinea and then during the penultimate stage in Senegal, the rally was again hit by tragedy with accidents that cost the lives of two young boys.
• Carlos Sainz hits hard
The two-time WRC champion (1990, 1992), and winner of 26 legs of the WRC championship all along his career had decided to take off for a new challenge. A prestigious recruit for Volkswagen, the Spaniard now had the ambition to win the Dakar. With four special victories for his first appearance, he started in style although his hopes for overall success were troubled by driving mistakes and mechanical problems. It’s now up to him to learn to be consistent.
• Courageous Despres
Weakened by a dislocated shoulder after a fall during stage 6, the title-holder courageously carried on the rally. After several difficult days during which his rival Marc Coma had the possibility to increase his lead, Despres found the strength and willpower to claim two stage successes and finish the rally in second position overall!
• Promised held
Winners of the ‘’Volant Dakar’’ competition that allowed them to compete in the 2005 edition that they had finished in 50th position, Guerlain Chicherit and Mathieu Baumel had attracted the attention of Sven Qandt, team manager of BMW – X Raid. The extreme skiing world champion now behind the steering wheel of an excellent car continued his progression: he claimed his first ever stage victory between Tambacounda and Dakar.
• Schlesser, the return
Two-time winner of the rally (1999 – 2000), Jean-Louis Schlesser hadn’t won a stage since the 2001 edition. He managed to hit back in Er Rachidia, for the first Moroccan stage. Later, the Schlesser team continued impressing through the good results of their vehicles. Thierry Magnaldi indeed conquered two specials in Zouerat and Nouakchott.
• The Americans well present
The United States hadn’t been as well represented in the bike overall standings since Jimmy Lewis, 3rd in Dakar in 2000. This year USA’s Chris Blais, already 9th in 2005 finished 4th of the event while his compatriot Jonah Street, 17th on the finish line, finished in the top 5 of three stages. In the car race, Robby Gordon looked impressive behind the steering wheel of big Hummer… until Mauritania! Mark Miller, 5th overall proved to be the best member of the American contingent.
• Lisbon superstar
The Dakar discovered Portugal and received a warm welcome in Lisbon. Close to 300 000 people, including the President of the Republic, Jorge Sampaio, came to visit the caravan at the start in Lisbon and on the course of the two Portuguese specials. Added to that they had the satisfaction of witnessing the victory of their compatriot Ruben Faria in the second special.
• The importance of navigation
To renew with the founding principles of the rally-raid discipline, the organisers decided to disallow the systems indicating the cape on the GPS devices in the vehicles. The road book therefore became, as it used to, the competitor’s bible. The consequences were obvious. Indeed even in the Senegal specials quite a few competitors lost their way.
• A new record for Peter
Already the victory record holder with six successes on a bike and two in a car, Stéphane Peterhansel became the winner of the most specials in the history of the Dakar. Thanks to three special successes in Tan Tan, Atar and Kiffa, he now has a total of 51 wins on two and four wheels, in other words one more than Finland’s Ari Vatanen, only in the car class.

2006 LISBOA – DAKAR THE RACE
Stage 1 : Lisbonne – Portimao (370 km including 83 km special)
For a first start in a Dakar, what a start it was for Carlos Sainz! The Spaniard Volkswagen driver flew to an impressive special victory on the 83km of the stage going from Lisbon to Portimao. Sainz clocked the fastest time ahead of Portugal’s Carlos Sousa. Eager to take off this 28th edition of the Euromilhoes Lisboa-Dakar 2006, bike title holder Cyril Despres managed the best time of the day’s 83km special. The surprise however came from the excellent results of the Portuguese privateers with three bikers in the top 10.
Stage 2 : Portimao – Malaga (567 km including 115 km special)
The many Portuguese fans that gathered on the side of the roads of stage 2 between Portimao and Malaga were overwhelmed to see one of their heroes win the day’s special. Indeed Ruben Faria a newcomer on the Euromilhoes Dakar 2006 did even better than yesterday when he finished second by clinching his first ever success. In the car race, Carlos Sainz continued impressing for his first Dakar by clinching a second consecutive triumph. Russian Vladimir Chaguin won his second consecutive special in the truck race.
Stage 3 : Nador – Er Rachidia (672 km including 314 km special)
After a boat crossing yesterday evening from Malaga to Nador, the competitors of the 2006 Euromilhoes Lisboa-Dakar enjoyed their first kilometres on African soil. The bike race saw late starter Andy Caldecott clock the fastest time of the 314km special. The new overall leader on two wheels is title holder Cyril Despres. The car special went to Jean-Louis Schlesser while the new overall leader is Mitsubishi’s Nani Roma.
Stage 4 : Er Rachidia – Ouarzazate (639 km including 386 km special)
In the car category, Carlos Sainz (VW – no. 307) clocked up his third Dakar victory and his first on African soil. He also grabbed the mantle of overall leader at the top of a 100%-Volkswagen provisional podium. On two wheels, the honors also went to Spain, with Isidre Esteve winning his sixth stage victory on the rally at Ouarzazate, but the best performance of the day goes to Marc Coma, who moves to the top of the overall ranking ahead of his KTM - Repsol team-mate.
Stage 5 : Ouarzazate – Tan Tan (819 km including 350 km special)
Cyril Despres (KTM – no. 1) has recorded his second scratch time on the Euromilhoes-Lisboa-Dakar, by overtaking his rivals Marc Coma (KTM – no. 2) and Isidre Esteve (KTM – no. 3) at the head of the race. In the cars, Stéphane Peterhansel (MIT – no. 300) clocked the best time to get back within a more reasonable distance of Carlos Sainz (VW – no. 307) before entering Mauritania. In the trucks, Chagin continues to rule the roost.
Stage 6 : Tan-Tan – Zouerat (792 km including 444 km special)
Carlo De Gavardo (KTM – n° 4) won the Zouerat stage, where Cyril Despres (KTM n°1) crashed and now his title defence is in question. Suffering from a dislocated left lavicle, he has decided to continue on the rally, without much hope. In the car division, Thierry Magnaldi (SCH-n°315) took his first stage win on four-wheels, ahead of Jean-Louis Schlesser (SCHn°314). Giniel De Villiers (VW-n°305) is now the overall leader. In the truck division, Vladimir Chagin celebrated his 36th birthday with his sixth consecutive stage win.
Stage 7 : Zouerat – Atar (521 km including 499 km special)
Whereas Cyril Despres seems to have taken care of his injured shoulder, Carlo De Gavardo posted his second consecutive best time of the day. He passed Isidre Esteve and has neared team leader Marc Coma in the overall standings. In the car division, Stéphane Peterhansel won a second stage, his 50th on the Dakar. Luc Alphand has moved into the lead of the overall standings. In the truck race, Vladimir Chagin lost time while stuck in the sand but kept his overall leadership.The special was won by Dutchman Hans Stacey.
Stage 8 : Atar – Nouakchott (568 km including 508 km special)
After yesterday’s triumphant orange day, today’s stage heading from Atar to Nouakchott crowned a David Casteu who captured here his first ever success on a Dakar while his injured team mate Cyril Despres gained time on the event leaders. In the car division, Thierry Maganaldi’s victory confirms both the panache and seriousness of the Schlesser-Ford team. In the truck race, Firdaus Kabirov set the best stage time with a 5’25 advance from Hans Stacey and a 51’56 ‘’ gap over Vladimir Chagin, who once again got caught in the sand, at km 230 of the stage. He still leads in the general standings with a 30’32 lead from Kabirov.
Stage 9 : Nouakchott – Kiffa (874 km including 599 km special)
For the second consecutive year, the Dakar caravan was stricken on the route towards Kiffa. Australian rider Andy Caldecott, victim of a massive accident, was killed instantly at km 250 of the stage. Today also saw the retirement of Isidre Esteve, who was taken to hospital in Nouakchott following an accident. Cyril Despres posted his third stage win. On four-wheels Stéphane Peterhansel won his 51st Dakar stage, including all divisions : an all-time record. Another victory for Vladimir Chagin in the truck division.
Stage 10 : Kiffa – Kayes (333 km including 283 km special)
Today’s stage was neutralised for the motorcycle division in tribute to Andy Caldecott. In the car division, Carlos Sainz (VW-n°307) won but it was Stéphane Peterhansel (MIT – n° 300) who came up big today in relegating Alphand (MIT – n° 302) to 40’ minutes in the overall standings. Stéphane Peterhansel, who had already taken a decisive advantage on yesterday’s stage, was looking to confirm his domination of the rally. Clearly, the goal was to widen his gap from Luc Alphand in the general standings. He did just that. In the truck division, Hans Stacey took his third victory on the 2006 Dakar by a margin of 1’44’’from Firdaus Kabirov and 23’42’’ from Vladimir Chagin. The four-time winner of the event, who stopped lost 10-minutes but still has a 3h18’ lead over Kabirov.
Stage 11 : Kayes – Bamako (705 km including 231 km special)
For its second day in Mali, the Euromilhoes Dakar 2006 saw Alain Duclos clinch his first ever stage victory and what better place than Bamako to do it for the Mali native. Overall leader Marc Coma increased his lead and can now enjoy an advantage of over 30’ on Cyril Despres. In the car division Giniel De Villiers (VW – n° 305)managed to repeat his performance of last year, winning again in Bamako. While Stéphane Peterhansel (MIT – n°300) lost part of his margin from Luc Alphand (MIT- n°302). In the truck division, the third stage win for Hans Stacey moves the Dutchman into the position of closest pursuer of Chagin, who still has a commanding lead.
Stage 12 : Bamako – Labé (872 km including 368 km special)
Stage 12 of the Euromilhoes Dakar 2006 took the competitors from Bamako to Labé. On the 369kms of timed special, Cyril Despres captured his fourth success so far, only gaining over a minute on Marc Coma. The race in the car division was a lot more dramatic on this stage in Guinea because Stéphane Peterhansel (MIT – n° 300) dropped an enormous amount of time and thus relinquished his lead of the Rally to Luc Alphand (MIT – n° 302), who also was the winner of today’s stage. In the truck division, Vladimir Chagin (KAM – n° 508) remains in command despite the stage victory of Hans Stacey (MAN – n° 524).
Stage 13 : Labé – Tambacounda (567 km including 348 km special)
A sad day on the Dakar! During stage 13 of the rally between Labé in Guinea and Tambacounda in Senegal, a child was hit by a car and died during his transfer by medical helicopter. The Dakar caravan is again in mourning. In the bike race, Giovanni Sala comforted his third place overall by winning the day’s stage. Similarly, Luc Alphand had the mission of maintaining a sufficient advantage from Giniel De Villiers (VW - n° 305), who didn’t really pose a serious threat at more than 20-minutes behind. In the truck division, Hans Stacey won today’s stage, his fifth on this year’s Dakar.
Stage 14 : Tambacounda – Dakar (634 km including 254 km special)
The day after the first drama that took the life of a child, another young boy was struck on the course of the rallye. Before the traditional Lake Rose stage, Marc Coma made good use of navigational errors made by Cyril Despres to sufficiently extend his lead with the overall victory now in sight. David Frétigné took his first stage win of the year. In the car division, Guerlain Chicherit confirmed his promising start with the day’s best time, while Luc Alphand maintained his lead over Giniel De Villers in the general standings. Stage 15 : Dakar – Dakar (110 km including 31 km special)
The organisation had decided to cancel the stage and to drive to the Lac Rose in a liaison in tribuite to the two little boys who died on this year’s rallye.
93 bikers, 67 car crews and 33 trucks eventually made it to the finish line of the 28th Euromilhoes-Lisboa-Dakar. Luc Alphand in the car race and Marc Coma on two wheels were both crowned for the first time. Vladimir Chagin, behind the steering wheel of his Kamaz conquered his fifth title.
