Daniel Sanders has taken the win in stage 1A of the 2022 Dakar Rally in the bikes category, which is surely a good start for him.
Sanders’ win in the prologue means he gets to pick his starting position for stage 1B. The Australian was happy with how he had performed.
“I was really comfortable in the stage, the bike was handling unreal. It’s cool to show some speed, but the navigation has to start tomorrow. Looking forward to a long race.”
As predicted, Sanders will choose a starting place further back.
“I knew I had to be fast in the prologue. If there’s not too much navigation, I can be in the top 3 or 5 in the prologue. This will give me a good spot to start from 10th to 15th tomorrow, I get to choose. It’s cool to win my first Dakar special.”
