Dakar: Sébastien Loeb power 4 on the 9th stage

Frenchman Sébastien Loeb (Prodrive) won his 4th victory in the Dakar-2024 on Tuesday by setting the best time in the special of the 9th stage of the Dakar-2024 between Hail and Al-Ula, in Saudi Arabia.

For his 27th stage victory on the Dakar, the Alsatian grabbed 4 min 14 from the overall leader Carlos Sainz (Audi) but he was still 20 min 33 behind the Spaniard before the finish of the last stage Friday in Yanbu, on the shores of the Red Sea.

“El Matador”, well surrounded by his Audi teammates Mattias Ekström and Stéphane Peterhansel, managed his overall lead well in the special of more than 400 km, with dunes, complicated navigation and rocky and sandy tracks.

The Frenchman Mathieu Serradori (Century), in two-wheel drive, took a good 3rd place, 4 min 43 behind his compatriot Sébastien Loeb.

The days follow one another and are similar for the title holders Nasser Al-Attiyah and Mathieu Baumel (Prodrive), who left the special again after... 1 km of racing, due to a mechanical problem.

On Wednesday for the 10th stage, competitors will have to slalom through the monumental rocks of the Al-Ula region over a 371 km special, with navigation pitfalls to be expected.
