The Great World Marathon, 43rd Dakar Rally 2021, is very close to the end. Only one more stage remains to be held and then the ceremony at the finish line in Jeddah.
Our Gabor Sagmeister is facing a new triumph. We believe that for the TENTH TIME, the extremely hard marathon will end, this time in Saudi Arabia, in the sun, on the sand and for the most part in total darkness. But, when someone is armed with great will, then every goal is achieved… A brave man from Subotica who will turn 50 in a few months today was on the longest special exam… .. 62… ..In the general classification he takes 61st place, while in the class “small suitcase”, where there is no right to help mechanics, in position number… 18. So far, on the 43rd Dakar, Sagmeister has spent as much as 78 hours, 54 minutes and 26 seconds on a motorcycle…. He slept on the ground for 12 full days, in a tent…
Only in the category of motorcyclists is the question of the winner open. For now, the winner is the closest Argentine, 32-year-old Kevin Benavides, with a “Honda”. A talented professional with an ideal constitution, 1.72 tall, weighing 73 kilograms… .of which he lost a lot during sprints in the desert …… If he succeeds… it will be his first victory at Dakar… ..is there any greater joy for a young driver who often drove and at one point!
Brit Sam Sunderland with “ktm” is only 4.12 minutes behind, which can certainly be canceled, but, with great risk, full throttle. The same can be said for the American Ricky Brabeck, with a “Honda”. He has to make up for 7.13 minutes for the second Dakar victory. It is quite certain that in the last stage, all three will do their best, and we hope that the healthy will reach the goal.
In all other categories, the situation is unchanged. Stefan Peterhansel is still leading with 15 minutes of advantage, and it is quite certain that the “mini” with the number 302 will win in Saudi Arabia, ahead of Nasser Al Atiya and Carlos Sainz.
Argentine Manuel Andujar has a 19-minute advantage over Frenchman Giroux.
In the competition with buggies or in the “light vehicle” class, the Chilean Francisco Lopez Contardo is convincing with 12 and a half minutes ahead of the American Austin Jones.
Finally, among the competitors with trucks, it is quite certain that the Russian Dmitry Sotnikov will win the Dakar for the first time and that KAMAZ will bring even the 18th triumph… ..you will admit, it is a huge success of the giant from Russia… ..and Jedi will be again open vodka… .health to them!
Tomorrow, Friday, January 15, 2021… ..the last, 12th stage of the Dakar Marathon, number 43, will be held.
