Quotes



Nasser Al-Attiyah:
“We come to the Dakar to compete and fight. I’m really happy to be leading the race now, but there’s still a long way to go. The performance of the car has been great. We have our marathon stage checklist so we’ll work through that when we get to the bivouac. Everything was working great today so I don’t think we’ll have too much to do.”



Stéphane Peterhansel:
“If you compare the first three days, this was something completely different. There were no dunes at all, only big valleys with a big open landscape and lots of fesh-fesh. The kind of fesh-fesh we find here in Peru and in the north of Chile. It’s such a fine powder that can get in the car as well as cover rocks.”



Kuba Przygonski
: “All day we were driving on big stones and this was tough on the tyres for sure. It was a bumpy ride today because of the stones. We made some small mistakes with navigation, but we were able to keep a good rhythm for the most part. Tonight we’ll inspect the car, everything seems to be in the right place.”



Sébastien Loeb:
“I think we had a very good rhythm in the stage the whole time. We had a total of three punctures so we had stop three times. The tyres were getting completely destroyed so we had to keep changing them. This cost us time, more than 30 minutes.”



Carlos Sainz: “
Today was always going to be tough after we were in the stage all day yesterday. Our air conditioning stopped working so I had to open the window. That's why I’m covered in dust.”



Cyril Despres:
“The day didn’t start out great because we were missing pressure in one of our rear tyres. Driving like this for 180 kilometres was not easy. We managed to come back on Nani (Roma) and (Yazeed) Al-Rajhi and overtake them. The track was rough in places, in one three kilometre section we got two flat tyres.”



Matthias Walkner:
“50 kilometres from the end there was a big jump and I did some damage to my ankle. At first I thought it was broken because it was so painful. We’ll see, I’ll put some ice on it tonight and we’ll see how it feels tomorrow. The good thing is I made no crash and the bike is running well so the marathon stage should not be any problem. We’re a big group and we can help each other out.”



Toby Price: “
The last 30 to 40 kilometres of this stage in the rio with rocks and stones was pretty brutal. It’s the ones that catch you unexpectedly that hurt the most. I had a little off in that section which aggravated my wrist. I’m still here and I’m looking to get the best possible result each and every day. We’ll see where that takes us.”



Sam Sunderland:
“Things started off at really high speed today on flat plains. Then after the refuel we were in some really technical areas with lots of riverbeds with big rocks and stones. I lost some time stuck in a ravine that wasn’t too comfortable. After that I lost touch with the boys so I had to push on a bit to close back up. I managed that so all in all it’s not so bad.”



Luciano Benavide
s: “It was a fast stage with lots of fesh-fesh. Overall it was a good stage. The bike is perfect, maybe I need to change a filter but nothing major. I’m happy to be here and looking forward to the next days.”



Daniel Nosiglia:
“It was quite different this stage compared to what we have had so far. I enjoyed it and had lots of fun. We didn’t have any sand, just lots of fesh-fesh and many fast tracks.”



Laia Sanz: “
It was good day, tough but good. It’s so important to be here with the bike in one piece because it’s the marathon stage. In the first part of the stage I was in the dust a lot and then the finish in the riverbed was also hard.”



Andrey Karginov:
“We had two punctures today and a small problem with the wheels. We had to change two wheels in the soft sand, but it didn’t cost us too much time. There were also some navigation challenges for us. Finally we arrived to Tacna without any technical problems so we can prepare for the next marathon day in a good way.”
