Due to heavy rain and consequently deep and slippery mud on the route, the organizer interrupted the final stage after the second checkpoint. The resident finished his eighteenth place in the Dakar Rally in 28th place out of 79 motorcyclists who reached the finish line. With its fifth victory, Coma brought KTM its fourteenth consecutive rally victory. Goncalves with Honda and newcomer Price are also on the podium. Due to heavy rain, which turned the terrain into a barely transportable mud bath, the organizer of the Dakar Rally interrupted today's stage after the second checkpoint, thus shortening the 174-kilometer speed test by half. This year, the only Slovenian racer at the rally, Miran Stanovnik from Log near Brezovica, finished the speed test with the 27th fastest time and thus finished in the overall standings.
