Quotes



Carlos Sainz
: “We were all together on the stage, in a group of five with Nasser (Al-Attiyah), Stéphane (Peterhansel), Yazeed (Al Rajhi) and Bernhard (Ten Brinke). To be honest we were not pushing hard. Nasser was opening the road and I didn’t want to pass him when we caught up to him.”



Nasser Al-Attiya
h: “The last part was very difficult with all the dunes. I was opening all the way and everybody was coming in close. The last 50 kilometres was a really big fight. We did a good job and I’m quite happy. It was not easy without the bikes, really difficult, everything is new without any lines, but we did a good job and Mathieu (Baumel, co-driver) navigated well.”



Stéphane Peterhansel:
“We drove all together for the last 70 kilometres. At the beginning it was Carlos (Sainz) opening the road until he got stuck. Then Nasser (Al-Attiyah) got stuck in the dunes and after that I opened the road for more than 200 kilometres. Only at the end Nasser passed me. Navigation was so tricky that we all reduced the speed.”



Giniel De Villiers
: “It was a nice stage, very well balanced. There were some fast sections, but also some difficult dunes with very, very soft sand. It was a lot nicer than the two previous stages that were just flat out.”



Kuba Przygonski:
“Today was another stage where we got to drive at top speed. We also had some dunes that were not so easy. Visibility was low so it was not easy to see where we needed to go. We lost two or three minutes for a navigation mistake. Overall, we’re happy with the rhythm on the stage today.”



Mitch Guthrie Jr.
: “It was a really good day and to have it off the back of yesterday where we had a mechanical feels great. Thankfully, last night Cyril (Despres) gave me his motor out of his car so I was able to continue. That was an amazing gesture. Now we’re out of the general classification and into the Dakar Experience class so the aim is to pick up more of these stage wins.”



Andrey Karginov:
“The start was quick and we overcame the first rocky section with a good rhythm. We understand that we have a healthy lead in the general classification, but we still want to push in a responsible way. We want to become better competitors everyday so we’re enjoying testing ourselves on new terrain.”



Toby Price
: “The eight minutes we waited with Paulo (Gonçalves) while the helicopter came felt like the longest eight minutes of my life. It felt like an hour. The guys responded as quickly as they could. It gives me comfort that I was able to stop for him. I remember Paulo stopping for me in 2017 when I broke my leg at Dakar. We’ve lost a great friend and a great competitor.”


Matthias Walkner:
“Paulo (Gonçalves) has been a part of our sport for so long. I have many, many nice memories of riding together with him. He was such a friendly guy and very talented on the bike. At this Dakar we saw the passion he had for racing when he was fixing his engine on the stage. He is an inspiration for my generation of riders.”
