    Default Dakar Rally 2015 Final Race Report

    Marc Coma from the Red Bull KTM team makes his 5th career victory in the Dakar Rally. He was at 5th Position in stage 13, leaving him more than 16 minutes ahead of his closest competitor Team HRCís Paulo Goncalves. While the Dakar rookie and Comaís teammate, Toby Price was 3rd in overall ranking.


    Marc Coma has tackled the Dakar very carefully, winning just one stage out of 13. He also faced heavy challenge from Team HRCís Joan Barreda during initial stages, but a disastrous turn of event for Barreda proved advantageous for Coma.


    CS Santosh made it to finish line, he was 51st in the dayís timing with overall rank at 36th. He had a few crashes during the previous stages resulting in a hairline fracture on his left toe and a massively bruised shoulder. It is a spectacular result when you consider the fact that 168 riders had started the rally, but only 79 made it to the end, CS stood 36th in his maiden attempt.

    Sherco TVS Rider, Alain Duclos finished the Dakar Rally with 25th overall ranking and his teammate Fabian Planet at 29th Position. A great result for Indian rookies TVS Racing, but they will be disappointed as a top ten position was within grasp for Duclos, until technical problems shunted him down the pack.
