Getting their 2019 Dakar Rally campaigns underway today in Peru, all four Yamalube Yamaha Rally riders have completed the event's opening stage without any issues. Spearheading the team's efforts in the dunes of South America, Adrien Van Beveren has secured a strong fourth place result on stage one of the rally.



Always a crucial one to shake off pre-race anticipation, the opening stage of the 2019 Dakar Rally took competitors to the first overnight bivouac in the city of Pisco. Enjoying a steady pace from start to finish, Van Beveren posted the fourth best time in the day's timed special. Less than three minutes behind the provisional overall leader, the Yamalube Yamaha Rally rider is now looking ahead to the coming stages of the rally.



The second Yamaha powered rider inside the top 10 on stage one was Xavier de Soultrait. The Yamalube Yamaha Rally team rider enjoyed a mistake free performance on Monday, which put him 10th in the event's provisional overall standings after stage one. Xavier's goal for the coming stages is to remain within striking distance to the leaders in the provisional overall results.



Returning to competitive action following his leg injury, Yamalube Yamaha Rally team's Franco Caimi made a positive start by securing an 18th place result on Monday. Aiming to gradually find a good race pace, the Argentinean hopes to start gradually moving up in the overall standings.



Highly experienced Rodney Faggotter took his time to settle in and wrapped up the opening stage with a 29th place result. Enjoying a good feeling aboard the latest version of the WR450F Rally, the Aussie looks to continue building on his speed during the coming stages.



With no time to relax, competitors will face one of the rally's most demanding stages on Tuesday. Taking racers from Pisco to San Juan de Marcona, stage two of the Dakar includes a 342km timed special in a total distance of 553km to be covered by all during the day.




Adrien Van Beveren - Yamalube Yamaha Rally rider
4th Stage 1



"We got this tricky opening stage out of the way and I'm happy with my result for the day. Today we got a small taste of what lies ahead. The start of the Dakar is always tricky and there's some extra pressure. Today I tried to control this pressure and avoid mistakes by any means. I felt good racing in the dunes and my Yamaha was working great. As the race goes on, I want to gradually improve my pace while also staying 100% focused on the tracks and my navigation. Tomorrow we have a long stage and I'm looking forward to going back out there in the dunes."



Xavier de Soultrait - Yamalube Yamaha Rally rider
10th Stage 1


"Everything went well for me today. It's really important to ride clever to shake off these nerves in the beginning of this race. I spent quite some time the last few weeks planning my strategy for this race and now I'm happy to put it into action. My plan for these first few stages is to remain close to the leading group of riders. My bike is working great in the dunes and I am doing my best to avoid costly mistakes. If I can control my pace for this first week of the race, then I can push more on week two."



Franco Caimi - Yamalube Yamaha Rally rider
18th Stage 1


"It just feels so good to be back racing my Yamaha. This race is going to be tough, but I really want to do my best for the team and myself. Considering I was away from the bike for the last three months, I am really happy with my day. I still can't push 100%, so my plan is to keep it steady and find a good race pace. Considering I didn't push so much I am satisfied with the result from the stage and I am looking forward to the rest of this rally."





Rodney Faggotter - Yamalube Yamaha Rally rider
29th Stage 1


"Overall, I had a good day. I kept a steady pace from start to finish of the timed special and brought my bike home without any issues. My goal for the start of this race is to be consistent and remain inside the top 30 in the first stages. Today we raced about 70% of dunes and a long, dry and dusty river bed. Especially in that river bed you had to be extra careful to avoid mistakes. So far so good and now my eyes are set on tomorrow's tough stage."
