The reigning champion claimed the prologue of the Dakar with six seconds to spare over teammate Joan Barreda and thirteen over rookie Daniel Sanders.
“I don’t know if it’s the best to win the prologue. I wasn’t really trying to go out and do that. It feels good to be back here in Saudi. The dirt was really good, it rained a couple of days ago here. The race isn’t over, it’s not even started yet. Tomorrow we’re gonna go out there and enjoy and have fun.”
