Peterhansel is the first to win the Dakar on three continents – Car-Motor

As the driver of the X-Raid Mini JCW team, this year’s Dakar Rally was won by Stephane Peterhansel, 55, who became the first rider to win the race on three continents, and the first place in 14 pieces is also a record; Edouard Boulanger was the navigator for this year’s race.

Argentine Kevon Benavides, who races with Honda, won the two-wheeler race, the Argentine Manuel Andujar became the first in the quads category, and the truck race was won by Dimitri Sotkinov, who started with Kamaz and was accompanied by Ruslan Akhmadeev and Ilgiz Akhmetzianov. In the Lightweight Vehicle category, Chile’s Francisco Lopez Contardo / Juan Pablo Latrach Vinagre couple won, and the Dakar Classic was won by Marc Douton / Emile Etienne.

The celebration is overshadowed by the death of French amateur motorcyclist Pierre Cherpin, who still had an accident on Sunday. On the seventh stage, he crashed with his Husqvarna, and by the time the rescue helicopter arrived at him, he was already unconscious. The pilot, who suffered severe head injuries, was taken to a hospital where he was operated on and placed in an artificial coma, but his condition did not improve and he lost his life.
