DAKAR Rally 2013 stage 3 January 7th
Argentina/Chile - 1st start (GMT-5) : 7:00 AM

12:38 - bike
007 - Chaleco shines

Confirmation of the stage classification: Francisco "Chaleco" López was the fastest in the 243-kilometre third stage of the 2013 Dakar. With a time of 2 h 37'54", he beat Paulo Gonçalves by 1'08" and Cyril Despres by 4'08". Alessandro Botturi (+5'05") came in fourth, followed by Kuba Przygonski (+5'20"). Matt Fish and Joan Barreda Bort were the major casualties as they lost 29'52" and 33'02", respectively.

12:16 - bike
009 - Strong performance by Olivier Pain

The Frenchman has crossed the finish line with the second best time so far, 3'20" behind Despres. If things don't change much from the last checkpoint, he could be sitting pretty in the Top 10 overall tonight.

12:13 - bike
001 - Despres crosses the finish line

Cyril Despres and David Casteu were the first two riders across the finish line at 10:02 am local time. We're now waiting for Francisco López, who's been leading the special since the second third of the stage, to get an idea of today's classification.

11:46 - bike
007 - Chaleco still in the lead

Unofficial time splits at km 163 of today's special show that Francisco López (CHL/KTM) is still firmly in command of the motorcycle race. He was faster than Paulo Gonçalves (POR/Husqvarna) +2'53", Cyril Despres (FRA/KTM) +3'05", Kuba Przygonski (POL/KTM) +5'16" and Alessandro Botturi (ITA/Husqvarna) +5'36".

11:14 - bike
007 - López still on top at km 131

Francisco López (CHL/KTM) took the lead in the motorcycle category at km 62 and is still fastest halfway through the stage. With a time of 1 h 24'38", he beat Paulo Gonçalves (POR/Husqvarna) +1'37", Cyril Despres (FRA/KTM) +2 h 51'32" and Frans Verhoeven (NET/Yamaha) +2'53".

10:26 - bike
007 - Chaleco's back

Chile's Francisco López (KTM) has just beaten Cyril Despres at km 62. His time of 41'15" was 53" faster than the Frenchman's.

10:23 - bike
Despres still on top at km 62

Cyril Despres clocked the best time among the ten riders who've already gone through kilometre 62. It took him 42'08", which is 1'02" faster than Pablo Quintanilla's time and 1'42" quicker than Olivier Pain's.

10:04 - bike
039 - Fish on the move again

A short stop for Australia's Matt Fish (Husqvarna), who's back on his way and has exited the dune area around km 60. He's lost about five minutes.

10:03 - bike
039 - Matt Fish comes to a stop

Australia's Matt Fish stopped about three minutes ago, roughly 60 km into today's special. He's in a dune area and it wouldn't be surprising if he's got stuck in the sand.

10:02 - bike
033 - Campbell stops after 10 kilometres

American rider Johnny Campbell (Honda) has stopped inside the time section due to an undetermined mechanical problem. He's now trying to repair it.

09:57 - bike
183 - Quintanilla wakes up

Pablo Quintanilla (CHL/Honda) follows up his good performance in the first special of the 2013 Dakar by riding into the Top 3 at the km 29 unofficial checkpoint. His time of 19'39" puts him just behind Joan Barreda Bort.

09:54 - bike
Race situation at km 29

Now that the fifteen first riders have crossed this point, Cyril Despres set the tone in the opening 29 kilometres. The Frenchman posted a time of 19'04", beating Joan Barreda Bort by 33", David Casteu by 46", fellow countryman Olivier Pain by 1'09" and Jeremías Israel Esquerre by 1'12".

09:35 - bike
011 - Faria back on his way

Ruben Faria's on the move again following a ten-minute stop just before km 6 of today's special. He's riding at a normal pace.

09:27 - bike
011 - Faria stops in the special

Portugal's Ruben Faria (KTM) has just stopped less than six kilometres into today's special. We're not sure what the problem is, although it seems to be an issue with his motorcycle.

09:24 - bike
Right into the thick of things

Participants will enter the timed section of the stage straight away this morning, as the start of the special lies a mere four kilometres from the bivouac. No times are taken in this section. The stopwatch started ticking at 7 am local time for rally leader Joan Barreda Bort (SPA/Husqvarna) as he began the 243 km timed section.

Juan Pedrero García (SPA/KTM), Matt Fish (AUS/Husqvarna) and Ruben Faria (POR/KTM) are hot on his heels. Today's stage is expected to be tougher than yesterday's and could be the perfect opportunity for Cyril Despres (FRA/KTM) to come within striking distance of the leaders. He will start in twelfth position.

Pisco-Nazca: sand, sand and, yes, more sand

You could say the second stage was when the 2013 Dakar got serious, but the next stage should be even more challenging from the first 80 kilometres. The toughest part is concentrated in the beginning, with steeper, more difficult dunes, whereas the last 150 kilometres will take the participants through more rolling terrain.

The drivers and riders will set off from Pisco towards Nazca, along the ocean, and will have to be 100% focused in the finale. On paper, the twists and turns of the previous stage are just a preview of what we'll see over the next few hours. Peterhansel, Barreda Bort, Patronelli and De Rooy still hold slim leads.

Their rivals are down but not out and could well launch a counterattack on Monday. Mudguards and bumpers will be put to the test during a long, difficult week...
