Delivering Yamaha their first stage win at the 2019 Dakar Rally, WR450F Rally powered Xavier de Soultrait has secured victory on stage three of the event in Peru. Making today's stage even more successful for the Yamalube Yamaha Rally squad, Adrien Van Beveren claimed a fourth-place result and climbed to fourth in the event's provisional overall standings.



Following a well-calculated plan of attack, Xavier de Soultrait managed to make full use of his navigational skills during today's stage three of the Dakar. One of the first riders to find his way out of a tricky section in the first part of the stage, Xavier secured an emphatic stage win to move up to sixth in the event's provisional overall standings.



Putting in another solid performance today in Peru, Adrien Van Beveren managed to climb three spots in the provisional standings. Currently sitting 13 minutes behind the provisional overall leader and in fourth position, Adrien is looking ahead to the coming stages in the dunes of South America.



Stage three brought mixed fortunes for the Yamalube Yamaha Rally team. With Xavier de Soultrait and Adrien Van Beveren both enjoying a great stage and climbing higher in the overall rankings, their teammates Franco Caimi and Rodney Faggotter were unable to finish the stage, forced to sit out the rest of the 2019 Dakar Rally.



Suffering intense pain on his recently injured leg, Franco Caimi was forced to abandon the stage. As for Rodney Faggotter, a small technical issue after the last waypoint left the experienced Aussie with no chance of finishing the stage.



The two-day long marathon stage that takes competitors directly to the rest day kicks off tomorrow in Peru. Featuring a 405km timed special, stage four of the Dakar will bring all riders to the overnight marathon bivouac in Moquegua.




Xavier de Soultrait - Yamalube Yamaha Rally rider
1st Stage 3 / 6th Overall


"It feels great to get this stage win in the bag. We had some challenging navigation today and I'm glad I made no mistake. For me this was the first proper rally stage of this race. My plan going into this stage was to push and everything worked to my favour. I had a steady pace from start to finish and this helped me secure the win. I want to keep that same momentum throughout this first week of the race and then try to push harder whenever I get the chance to do so. Everything is going well for me so far, the bike is working great and I've had no crashes or mistakes."



Adrien Van Beveren - Yamalube Yamaha Rally rider
4th Stage 3 / 4th Overall



"I'm really satisfied with my performance today. The stage was hard and there was a lot of fog in the first part of it. At one point, we got stuck in the fog with a few other riders, but I managed to find my way out of there pretty fast. Going into the second part of the stage in the dunes I was planning to push more to make some time, but a small issue with my clutch didn't let me ride the way I would have wanted to. The Dakar is a huge adventure and I'm glad I found my way out of this small issue and managed to post a decent time on the stage. All members of our team are giving their best and now our eyes are set on the marathon stage that starts tomorrow."





Franco Caimi - Yamalube Yamaha Rally rider
DNF Stage 3


"Things did not work out the way I hoped today and the pain in my leg was unbearable. I struggled to finish the stage yesterday and today things were even harder. For me it was a huge achievement to line up for this rally two months after my femur surgery. I am really happy I was there to support my team and I really wish I could continue this rally. I'm determined to keep working hard to come back even stronger. It's been a great day for Yamaha, and I want to congratulate Xavier and Adrien for their great results. The race is long and I wish all the team the best of luck for the rest of this Dakar."
