  • December 3 update :

Le, has ambition to spare: the teammate of Botturi, Rodrigues and Van Beveren at Yamaha does not hesitate to place himself among the favorites of, despite his experience limited to three editions including one abandonment after a breakage. Because in addition to envy, the 28-year-old viscount also has speed, as underlined by his domination of the 2016 Baja World Championship and his second place in the Rally of Sardinia..

Not to mention the care taken in every detail to put all the assets on their side. An example ? Yesterday, Sunday January 1, it was impossible to shake his hand and even less to give him a kiss to celebrate the transition to the New Year! "I don’t want to catch germs on the eve of departure," he apologized, avoiding contact. "It would still be silly to get sick now, when I have been working for months to be on top on D-Day".

On the strength of this preparation, seeing him is therefore not a real surprise, even if some rather expected leaders like the outgoing winner Toby Price on his official KTM, Joan Barreda Bort on his Honda or his compatriot and teammate Adrien Van Beveren ( 11th in the stage), followed very closely following his exploits last year. But Xavier de Soultrait kept pace with his ambitions on this short prologue of only 39 km of timed special, hoisting his WR450F on the for the first time in his young career..

A good start for the Vicomte de Moulin-sur-Allier (03), whose particle is not synonymous with easy access to competition, on the contrary: "it’s just a title, I don’t have a life of king ", he explained in 2014 to our colleagues of …" I manage to live painfully of my job. My parents did not give me to eat all cooked in the beak and never paid my seasons . I learned to reach out to others to find sponsors ", develops the young man with a master’s degree in economics, a time mover (!) Before moving to the pros in enduro in 2008.

Cracks take their time

Thanks to this first Dakar success, the Yamaha rider logically takes the lead of the rally ahead of two other outsiders: the Spanish and the young American Ricky Brabec on his official Honda. Frenchman Michael Metge and Portuguese Paulo Goncalves put two more Honda in the Top 5, while winged crest leader Joan Barreda Bort suffered a first setback with a ford stop that earned him seventh place and a 32 seconds delay on arrival.

Toby Price, for his part, kindly made his mark during this first day, finished in 17th position on his KTM hit with n ° 1. His runner-up Stefan Svitko is 14th, two positions behind the very fast Pablo Quintanilla. The first three of the have clearly played the strategy without taking any risks during this prologue started for the first time from Paraguay, 29th country to host the Dakar.

This first stage was only a small appetizer for the 9,000 km of race scheduled until January 14. Tomorrow, things get serious with a second day spent in Argentina, between Resistencia and San Miguel de Tucuman, 803 km long, including 275 km of special. The dust and the first difficulties should appear in this region nicknamed "Chaco"…

Finally, it should be noted that out of 144 registered motorcyclists, only 142 crossed the finish line of this first stage, which was less easy than its brevity suggested, because it was marked by wet areas following the rains of the day before and sometimes difficult fording at negotiate: isn’t it Joan Barreda, above in full stroller with his official CRF450 ?!

Missing call Ivcan Ramirez, who before the start of the first competitor, the outgoing winner Toby Price left at 8:00 am. Shortly afterwards, Argentinian Sergio Miguel Petrone also had to give up when he left the bivouac towards the start. Two dropouts even before the first kilometer: it promises !
