Dakar 2018 – Stage Five – Footage Supplied by Red Bull

Stage Five of Dakar 2018 kicked up dust from San Juan De Marcona to Arequipa, the rally’s last stop in Peru before competition moves into Bolivia.

Joan Barreda was the man to beat on the bikes, the Spaniard pulled out all the stops to recover a chunk of the massive 28-minutes of time he lost on Stage Three (Link), where he missed a waypoint and was forced to backtrack 15 kilometres to avoid further penalties. 

Barreda’s incredible pace overnight has moved him forward from ninth to a strong fourth place in the overall rankings. The Honda man dominated from the start to steal the stage in style, finishing ten-minutes ahead of Austrian Matthias Walkner who consolidated third place overall on the Red Bull KTM Factory Team bike.
