Al-Attiyah Tops Second Dakar Rally Stage

BISHA, Saudi Arabia – Nasser Al-Attiyah put Toyota on top during the second stage of the Dakar Rally on Monday in Saudi Arabia. Much of the stage was controlled by Stephane Peterhansel, but Al-Attiyah eventually overtook him late in the 457 kilometer stage to collect the stage victory by more than two minutes over Peterhansel. He finished nearly four minutes ahead of Ricky Brabec to win the stage, which catapulted him into the class lead by more than six minutes over Brabec. Pablo Copetti was the winner of Monday’s quad stage, but Alexandre Giroud still holds a bit more than a minute lead in the class. Dmitry Sotnikov was the stage winner in the truck division, which allowed him to increase his lead in the class to more than 17 minutes.
