Dakar 2021 stage 6 – Spaniard Carlos Sainz, who lost a lot on Thursday, but faster on the 6th stage of this Dakar between Al-Qaisumah and Hail, in Saudi Arabia.
Sainz He does not give up. He may be unhappy, unhappy with some things about the race but he will not give his arm to twist easily. Today has shown talking on the track with a thunderous stage victory, scratching part of the lead brought to him by his two intimate enemies: Peterhansel and Al-Attiyah.
Sainz and Cruz Today they have cut 7:16 on Qatar and 7:34 on the leader, which is still the smartest in the class. Has gone from more to less during the special to finish just 18 seconds from Al-Attiyah… and make sure to leave the first day of the marathon with expectation and pasndole la presin the head of the Toyota ranks.
The Spanish today they made no mistakes, in which it seems that it has been one of the simplest days in terms of navigation of all disputed so far since. The pity has been that the day has been shortened, since Who knows what those 100 more kilometers could have given of themselves to Sainz and Cruz initially planned.
Now the current champions stand at 40:39 from Peterhansel… and they have an important challenge before them: top the category on the first day of the marathon stage where, let’s remember, this year the tire factor He also plays (new wheels cannot be requested from the service without receiving a 15 minute penalty). But the Spanish they have no choice but to attack until they manage to wipe the difference in the general.
Nani Roma He’s getting a taste for his BRX, his emergency co-pilot and the Dakar. After yesterday the Catalan already appeared by the high places, today a sensational stage has been marked ending seventh and in rhythms increasingly closer to those of the favorites.
Things are not going as well for his teammate. Sebastien Loeb has broken an arm from the suspension of his ‘Hunter’ and arriving very late at the finish line since he has needed the help of the assistance truck for the repairs.
Another of the top 10 in the general standings until today he has also said goodbye to the Dakar 2021, in this case Orlando Terranova, who has betrayed the mechanics of his Mini path of the sixth day, to which couldn’t even get out.
