Dakar motorcycle 2020 stage 1: Price sets the scene in Saudi Arabia

Dakar - Dakar motorcycle 2020 stage 1: Price sets the scene in Saudi Arabia -

Toby Price, winner of the Dakar motorcycle last year, secures the first stage victory of the Dakar 2020 which migrates from South America to Saudi Arabia despite a penalty of 2 minutes. Explanations, video and results.

The Australian Toby Price starts the Dakar 2020 as in 2019, with a stage victory on his official KTM. Le is the first to taste success in Saudi Arabia – where the "King of Rally" will take place for the next five years – and is already preparing to continue the domination of KTM, 18 times winner of the Dakar.

  • Dakar 2019:
  • MNC special file :

Today’s layout, between Jeddah and Al Wajh, included 433 km of connection and 319 km of timed specials on rocky and fairly fast terrain. This interesting warm-up smiles on favorites like Price and Matthias Walkner (3rd), but also Ricky Brabec on his factory Honda (2nd).

The usual "big guys" are also present: Kevin Benavides (Honda), Sam Sunderland (KTM), Pablo Quintanila (Husqvarna) and Joan Barreda (Honda) follow each other from 4th to 7th place. Adrien Van Beveren, 10th, is the first French rider but already 7’52 behind the leader: insufficient for the northerner who on his official Yamaha.

  • Interview MNC Adrien Van Beveren : "I have the level to win the Dakar"

His teammate Xavier de Soultrait recorded the 13th time and Adrien Metge placed the Sherco in 15th place. Laia Sanz, first female driver, finished this first day in 20th position on her Gas Gas.

Price winner despite a penalty

Toby Price wins the stage despite a problem with his road-book unwinder after about fifteen kilometers. The Australian managed to get by by following the volutes of dust of his competitors, which he finally caps with the pole thanks to his experience and – by his own admission – a zest of luck.

"On paper, it looks good for the moment, but I may take a penalty," he confessed last night, aware of perhaps not having fully respected all the way-points (crossing points) . Race management will effectively inflict two minutes penalty on him, as he expected when he got off his bike..

"It’s not the best way to start, but the road is long," recalls the No. 1 who keeps the advantage over Brabec despite his penalty. "In any case I felt good on my bike, we arrived at the finish without having had any problems, there is something to be happy about".
