The Dakar has always pushed the boundaries of the motorcycle industry, and today I'm going to talk about why we think 2024 could be a hugely important race for the whole industry, and possibly the closest Dakar in many years..
We discuss Mason Klein and the Kove Works Team and Barreda's shock last minute move as well as looking at the bikes and favorites in the different classes.

Yet another long, hard slog on the way to Al Hofuf, a city nestled in the heart of a sprawling, lush oasis dotted with three million date palms.
The terrain is a bit faster and easier to make up for the length of the special and the fact that it is the second half of a marathon stage.

José Ignacio Cornejo took a second stage victory at this year’s event with a dominant performance into Al-Hofuf.

Having narrowly missed out on a maiden podium at the Dakar Rally in 2020, the 29 year old has his eyes on the top prize. The Chilean notched up his eighth Dakar stage victory, flying across stage four to propel him to the top of the overall standings now leading Ross Branch by over a minute.
After the Dakar had only briefly visited the dunes over the past few days, the full dune programme was on the agenda today. The 118-kilometre stage took the crews into the “Empty Quarter”, where there is little more than sand.

But that was just a foretaste of the next two days. Thursday and Friday also have “dunes galore” on the program.
Today’s stage took in 118km of sand dunes through Saudi Arabia’s Empty Quarter as riders made their first tracks into the jaw-dropping landscapes towards Shubaytah.

Setting off early from the Al-Hofuf bivouac, riders were also faced with an arduous, energy zapping 527 km road section which would require some serious concentration during on the bike, before they were then thrown into the deep dunes on a hot day in the Eastern Province.
Loeb made a low-key start to Sunday’s 483km test between Riyadh and Al-Duwadimi, but the nine-time World Rally champion was gradually able to make his way to the front, taking his third stage victory of the year with a margin of 7m06s over Toyota’s Lucas Moraes.

Sainz finished fourth behind Nasser Al-Attiyah on what was a relatively tough day for Audi, with Ekstrom stopping twice due to mechanical problems and Stephane Peterhansel having to sacrifice his own chances to come to the aid of the Swede.

It was Toyota newcomer Seth Quintero who set the early pace as the Dakar Rally resumed near the Saudi capital after a day’s rest, with the promising American leading Overdrive’s Guerlain Chicherit and team-mate Moraes in a Hilux 1-2-3.
