DAKAR RALLY 2022
Saudi Arabia
1-14 January
Stage 8  Al Dawadimi > Wadi Ad Dawasir
Monday, January 10th 2022




    On completion of stage 8, Sam Sunderland has regained the lead in the bike category general rankings, making it the 6th day in this position for the GasGas rider. He has even managed to increase his lead on the end of the special and now lies 3’45 ahead of Walkner and 4'43 ahead of Van Beveren.


Pablo Quintanilla, 4th in the general rankings, has moved to within 5'30'' of the leader thanks to his 2nd place on the day’s special. The other Honda rider, Joan Barreda, is 5th, 14'38'' behind the leader. Santolino has moved into 6th position but the gap between the top of the rankings has increased threefold.


The Sherco rider now trails the new general standings Sam Sunderland leader by 21'09''. Mason Klein, who could already be called the revelation of this 44th edition of the Dakar, achieved the day’s fifth best time, 8'08'' behind the winner and now occupies 10th place, 35'26'' behind the Englishman, and three minutes behind none other than Toby price!


Privateer Štefan Svitko is in front of the Australian, in 8th place, 27 minutes behind the only official GasGas rider left in the race.
    


Sunderland looks set to take the general rankings lead



    After 321 km, Sam Sunderland has increased his lead in the virtual general rankings. Walkner was 3rd whilst Van Beveren was in 9th. The Yamaha rider, who was the overall leader in the bike category this morning, now finds himself behind the current world champion. If the gaps stay the same until the finishing line, the podium will include the same trio but in a different order.
   



11:42 Moto: Sunderland keeps the lead


    After 280 km, Sam Sunderland (GasGas) boasted the day’s best time, 2’02’’ in front of Walkner and 2’10’’ ahead of Quintanilla'. Van Beveren trailed the Englishman by 6'59'' meaning Sunderland is the virtual general rankings leader ahead of VBA and Walkner.


Less than thirty seconds separated the KTM and Yamaha rider in this battle for provisional second place in the general standings. Cornejo and Barreda lost time a little further on whilst looking for a waypoint. They have already reached the finishing line, but only when Sunderland arrives will we know the outcome of the day.
    



10:54 Moto: Sunderland is still going strong


    After 201 km, Sam Sunderland is still setting the pace on the day’s special. The British rider now has a lead of almost two minutes over Matthias Walkner. Pablo Quintanilla is the day’s leading Honda rider, 2’22’’ behind the Englishman. Adrien Van Beveren, now more than 6 minutes behind the current stage leader’, has lost the lead in the virtual general rankings to Sunderland.
    


  10:14 Moto: Sunderland closes in on Van Beveren


    Sam Sunderland still leads after 170 km and the British rider now has an advantage of 5’30’’ over his brother-in-law Adrien Van Beveren. As a result, in the virtual general rankings, Sunderland is only 8 seconds behind the Frenchman, with the GasGas rider closing in on the Yamaha representative!
 


 09:32 Moto: Sunderland still leads


    After 119 km, Sam Sunderland remains in the lead ahead of Joan Barreda and Matthias Walkner who are both just under two minutes behind the British rider. Pablo Quintanilla has put the second fastest Honda of the days so far in to fourth place, 2’09’’ behind the stage leader. Toby Price has already lost more than 3 minutes, whilst Adrien Van Beveren has dropped down into 11th position, more than 4 minutes behind, in between Nacho Cornejo and Kevin Benavides.
    


 09:16 Moto: Petrucci attacks

    Danilo Petrucci, who was the 47th rider to begin the special, has a perfectly marked boulevard ahead of him. The Italian, who admitted yesterday that he had got lost a hundred times, is taking advantage of his rivals’ tracks and currently occupies 10th place at the first time check, less than one minute behind Sam Sunderland. “Petrux” could still yet find himself on today’s podium.
 


  09:09 Moto: Sunderland hammers home his advantage!


    At WP2 (after 86 km), Sam Sunderland boasts a lead of more than 1’30’’ over Joan Barreda and 1’45’’ over Matthias Walkner. The day is proving to be complicated for Adrien Van Beveren, who has lost almost 3’30’’ to Sunderland.
  



 09:02 Moto: Cornejo loses time


    Nacho Cornejo, who is opening the way with Joan Barreda, has lost more than two minutes at the second check point to his Spanish team-mate. To see if the Chilean has lost more time, it will be necessary to await the arrival of Sam Sunderland. The situation is similar for Adrien Van Beveren who has lost 1’48’’ at WP2, meaning the gaps in the general ranks are tightening even further!
   


  08:46 Moto: Klein impresses again

    At the age of just 20 years old, Mason Klein is competing with the big hitters once again on the day’s special. The American is only a little more than thirty seconds behind current stage leader Sam Sunderland.



    08:37 Moto: Sunderland sets the tone



    As the 28th rider to start, Sam Sunderland has taken advantage of his rivals’ tracks. The British rider has achieved the best time so far at WP1, with a lead of almost 30’’ over Ricky Brabec and Joan Barreda. Matthias Walkner, the 24th rider to begin the stage, is the leading KTM rider in fourth place, 36’’ behind the Englishman. Adrien van Beveren, the leading Honda rider in the stage hierarchy, has already lost more than one minute to Sunderland, his brother-in-law.
   


08:15 Moto: Svitko is the leading privateer

    Štefan Svitko, the 15th rider to get to grips with the special, is taking part in his 13th Dakar this year, once again as a privateer. At the beginning of stage eight, the Slovak occupied eighth place, just 20 minutes behind Adrien Van Beveren. Better than that: he has not been outside the top 10 since stage 2, which is a fine performance against the factory team riders.
    


08:04 Moto: Avantage Honda for the moment


    Ricky Brabec leads the dance at the first time check point ahead of Joan Barreda and Nacho Cornejo. Toby Price is 28’’ behind the American, whilst the Hero ridden by Joaquim Rodrigues trails by 35’’, in front of Kevin Benavides. Lorenzo Santolino has put his Sherco a little more than one minute behind the current stage leader for the moment.
   


 07:59 Moto: Branch throws in the towel

    Ross Branch, absent from the start this morning, will not be carrying on racing, which, according to the Yamaha team management, is a sensible decision. Three official riders have dropped out of the rally, namely Daniel Sanders (GasGas), Skyler Howes (Husqvarna) and now Ross Branch (Yamaha), out of the 19 that began the Dakar (4 Honda, 3 KTM, 3 Yamaha, 3 Sherco, 2 Hero, 2 Husqvarna and 2 GasGas).
   





 07:44 Moto: Let’s talk numbers…

    Let’s talk numbers… When looking at the make-up of the field at the start this morning, the keener-eyed observers will have noticed that there are three of the four most recent winners among the first ten riders to start.


The other former winners, Matthias Walkner and Sam Sunderland, will be the 24th and 28th riders to start respectively. As for the constructors, the top 10 includes six different brands.
   


 07:27 Moto: Original by Motul: first stage win for Melot


    In the Original by Motul category reserved for unassisted bikers, Benjamin Melot, third in the discipline last year, triumphed yesterday. This victory has allowed him to climb into fourth place in the general rankings more than 1 h 30 minutes behind Arūnas Gelažninkas, who again stretched his lead a little further. The Lithuanian now boasts an advantage of more than one hour over Milan Engel and South African rookie Charan Moore.
 


  07:21 Moto: Branch absent at the start


    Ross Branch, who was due to be the 13th rider to start this morning, is absent today. The man from Botswana, who was still badly bruised and limping yesterday after is fall on stage 6, has remained at the bivouac. After GasGas and Husqvarna, it is now the turn of Yamaha to have one less representative.
   


 07:17 Moto: Cornejo kicks off proceedings

    Nacho Cornejo is the first rider to start the day’s special. The Chilean, who has decided to move things up a gear this week after having, by his own admission, made a bad mistake on the first day, will be opening the way in front of Kevin Benavides and Joan Barreda, still nursing a shoulder injury. A watchful eye will have to be kept on Matthias Walkner and Sam Sunderland, respectively the 24th and 28th riders to begin the stage.
   


 07:08 Moto: The Top 7 within just 8 minutes!


    Adrien Van Beveren may well be leading the general rankings, but the Frenchman has a lead of only five minutes over the trio of Austrian bikes led by Matthias Walkner ahead of Kevin Benavides and Sam Sunderland. Just behind them lies Lorenzo Santolino on his Sherco and the two Hondas ridden by Pablo Quintanilla and Joan Barreda.


Today’s opener is another Honda rider, namely Nacho Cornejo, who tasted victory yesterday. The Chilean is not shy about displaying his intentions for week two of the rally: “This week is time to take a different look at the race: we’ve completed the first week and know we’ll have to think about attacking before the end”.
