The tenth stage was a fast stage, with the route mainly on sand and gravel paths. There were a few tricky navigation points in the route, but all the top riders made it through without any problems. The stage led from Wadi Ad Dawasir to Bisha, which included a timed route of 375 kilometers.
His victory brings Peterhansel’s total to 49 victories in the Dakar rally. This means that the Frenchman is only one victory away from the all-time record of Ari Vatanen, who drove a total of fifty victories in the rally.
Sebastien Loeb, the biggest challenger to Nasser Al-Attiyah in the standings, finished fifth, making up +1.25 minutes on the leader in the standings. However, with two stages to go, a final victory will be difficult for the Frenchman, because the Qatari’s lead is still +32.40 minutes.
Peterhansel and Sainz have had no chance of a good final classification since the first stages after the necessary bad luck. The differences behind Loeb are also large. Yazeed Al-Rajhi, third in the standings, is +55.48 behind, while Terranova, who finished third today, is +1.29.18. Jakub Przygonski completes the top five at +1.41.02. Behind them are De Villiers, Vasilyev, Halpern, Serradori and Ekstrom.
Bernhard ten Brinke was unable to finish in the top ten today. The Toyota driver finished in seventeenth place, +12.22 minutes behind. He is therefore sixteenth in the general classification and is therefore the best Dutchman.
Maik Willems and Henri van Steenbergen are still on their way in stage ten.
