    2016 Dakar Rally Stage 8 Results

Size:  70.0 KB

    Stage 8 war resumed after a day of rest in Salta. This was the 1st stage to feature navigation through sand dunes. Toby Price was unrivaled in the 534kms stage. This was his fourth stage victory of the 2016 Dakar Rally, he beats Poulo Goncalves by over five minutes, the Honda rider crashed early during the stage and broke his navigation equiptment, though manages to finish the day second fastest with Rockstar Husqvarnas Pablo Quintanilla at 3rd place.

    The two Sherco TVS Riders Alain Duclos and Joan Pedrero have shown a consistent performance so far in 2016 Dakar Rally, both have managed to put themselves into top 10 overall ranking. Duclos was classified 13th in the 8th stage ranking while Joan Pedrero has moved up at 9th overall place. The third rider Florent Vaysaade has also moved up to 31st in stage as well as overall ranking.

    Stage 9 will be the shortest day of riding for the 2016 Dakar Rally Competitors, with 436km total distance and a 285km special. But not easy at all, as it will also be the start of second marathon stage, that means once the riders enter Balen, they wont be able to have contact with team mechanics.

    2016 Dakar Rally Stage 9 Results

Size:  103.6 KB

    Red Bull KTMs Toby Price won the stage 9 with over seven minutes lead against the closest rival Hondas Kevin Benavides. Stefan Svitko from KTM team finished 3rd. Toby Price retains the overall lead with Svitko at second followed by Rockstar Husqvarnas Pablo Quintanilla at 3rd Place.

    While Toby Price set a pace to claim his fifth stage victory, Honda rider Paulo Goncalves challenge for victory has ended due to radiator problem. His bike cant be repaired by his crew nor does he have access to spare parts to repair his bike. The rider in the previous stage managed to emerge unscathed from the crash.

    In the face of the extreme heat, organizers elected to declare the stage results after the second checkpoint, despite the fact that some riders had yet to reach the first.

    Stage 9 was the shortest of this season but brutal loop through the Fiambala dunes. The competitors faced added pressure of the temperature above 50 degrees Celsius which eventually forced the officials to cut it short.

    Sherco TVS riders are no longer in top 10 standings now. Alain Duclos is at 15th and Joan Pedrero is at 16th place in the overall classification with the third teammate Florent Vaysaade at 30th place.

    Alain Duclos finished the 9th stage at 24th place followed by Joan Pedrero at 28th and Florent Vaysaade at 29th place.

    While nothing is guaranteed in the Dakar, But if Price won his 1st Dakar in Rosario on Saturday (local time), it will earn him a slice of history to be the 1st Australian champion.

    Toby Price Said,
    I havent really looked into the history of results yet, Ill look at that tomorrow once its all done. If that happens it will be a bit of history and Ill be pretty stoked with that.
    Antoine Meo, stage 11 winner lost his way and then suffered a disastrous off just a few kilometres from the finish line. The unseen bump in the track threw him over the handlebars and cost him ample time, dropping him from top-three contention for the day down to 23rd.

    Sherco TVS rider Florent Vayssade finished 12th stage at 23rd place with an overall ranking at 27th Place. While Alain Duclos managed to finish the stage at 55th place and ranked 42nd overall.

    Red Bull KTM's Toby Price wins the 2016 Dakar Rally. He became the first Australian to win Dakar in any category. This was KTM's 15th consecutive overall victory in the Dakar Rally.

    Toby Price said,
    Winning in my second participation is awesome, but being the first Australian to win the Dakar is just insane, I wouldve never imagined this two years ago. Finishing the rally is already a triumph. Winning it is amazing! I tackled the race in true Aussie style. I attacked when I had to, when the time was right, and I kept an eye on my bike during the all-important marathon stages. I also navigated quite well. I hope this is just the start, to win again. It wont be easy, so Ive got to savor this victory.
    Toby Price finished 4th in the final stage in Argentina. This was his second attempt at the Dakar. In April 2013 during a race he broke three vertebrae in his neck, narrowly avoiding becoming a quadriplegic. I was very, very lucky to get back on my feet and walk again, let alone get back on a dirt bike. My main goal was getting back on the dirt bike and starting to ride again."

    Toby Price made his debut attempt in the grulling Dakar Rally last year and finished at 3rd place overall. Following that performance he signed for the Red Bull KTM team, whom he raced for during this years victory.

    Rockstar Husqvarna factory rider Pablo Quintanilla wrapped up his 2016 Dakar Rally on Saturday on a high note with a victory in the final stage 13 that also secured him third overall in the rally raid. Quintanilla completed the final stage in 1hour 15 minutes to finish in the overall rankings behind Toby Price of Australia and Slovakias Stefan Svitko.

    Pablo Quintanilla said,
    "The last stage was extremely hard. There was a lot of tension and nerves before the start. The entire race came down to this one stage. I started fast and, thanks to today and the team's work we defended our third place. I'm delighted. It was such a tough Dakar that we had to fight for the podium the last day, which is usually an opportunity to kick back and relax. For me, the last stage was the toughest, the most nerve-wracking one in the entire rally. I was hurt before the rally, but professional work helps you overcome that. The investment paid off today."
    Red Bull KTM Factory racer and Dakar rookie Antoine Meo overcame a nasty fall on the penultimate stage to get home in 7th place overall. Meos standout performance in his rookie year mimics that of Price in 2015.

    Antoine Meo is a five-time enduro world champion. He scored two stage wins in Dakar this year. During the stage 12 he lost his way and then suffered a disastrous off just a few kilometres from the finish line.

    The final stage took riders from villa Carlos Paz to Rosario but the end result came quite quickly because the timed special was at the beginning of Stage 13, after which riders had to continue the rest of the 699km distance to the ceremonial finish.

    The days stage victory went to Pablo Quintanilla with Honda's Kevin Benavides in second and Yamahas Helder Rodrigues at third.

    Sherco TVS rider Florent Vayssade finished the 2016 Dakar Rally at 27th place in overall ranking, 8hours 17 minutes behind Toby Price. He finished 27th in the 180kms final stage. While the Sherco TVS lead rider Alain Duclos was 42nd overall and 23rd in the final stage. He lost precious time in the previous stage due to helmet theft.

    The Dakar 2016 was confronted with many difficulties. In the planning stage both Chile and Peru withdrew from the competition because they rightly anticipated possible severe weather disruptions from the El Nino weather effect. This left Argentina and Bolivia on the program, but even these countries felt the negative force of the recurring weather phenomenon. Thunderstorms and floods plagued the rally, particularly the first week, and intense temperatures in the second week resulted in several stages being shortened. In Bolivia riders competed at altitudes of up to 4,500 m and while the first half of the rally was very fast, stages got increasingly complicated, with much more navigation in the second week.
