2014 Dakar Rally: Day 2 Results

Day 2 in 2014 Dakar Rally is now over and it looks like it will be a very competitive rally.  In the Bike Class it is somewhat surprising that a Honda is at the top of the field, but the Honda rider is a very good rider.

In the cars Stephane Peterhansel is in his customary leader’s role; however Sainz is just 28 seconds behind.  Al-Attiyah and Roma are about 4 minutes behind Peterhansel – virtual tie at this point in a Dakar Rally.

I used to think that the most often repeated words in motorsports were: “And Mario slows on the backstretch”, but now it must be “Robby Gordon had some trouble today”.  At this time I don’t know what the trouble was but now Robby Gordon is in 57th position 3 hours 43 minutes behind the leader.  I believe that any possibility of a victory for Robby is gone.
