Stage 12 cancelled for bikes and quads at Dakar rally

The upcoming stage from Fiambalato Chilecito was also to be a marathon stage for motorcycle riders with twists, turns and multiple stony sections.

In a statement promoters ASO said, "Following the study of the safety conditions for bikes and quads race tomorrow, despite a first modification of the stage announced this afternoon, having consulted the competitors grouped at Fiambala's marathon bivouac, the Race Direction has taken the decision to cancel the 12th special stage for bikes and quads", read a statement from ASO. The result has helped him inch closer to the top 10, with a 14th place overall ranking. Stage 13 will now start from San Juan later today. The Spanish rider pushed hard and finished the stage in the eighth position.

It was the Dakar Rally 2018's first marathon stage but debutant Oriol Mena showed no nerves. Rally leader Matthias Walkner took it easy on the 11th stage, and the lead stands at just over 30 minutes.

"We drove rather calmly, but at the end of the special we had a puncture, and a few problems with the gearbox".

Dutchman Bernhard Ten Brinke (Toyota) won the stage with a time of 4hr 10min 54sec, ahead of Cyril Despres (at 4min 35sec) and Sainz (at 4min 40sec).

He now leads second-placed Kevin Benavides of Honda team by 32 minutes, though the latter finished No. 2 in stage 11. Ignacio Casale held the overall rally lead and finished the 11th stage behind Cavigliasso who is in the second position in the overall standings.

Carlos Sainz lost almost 16 minutes to his chief rival in Thursday's 12th stage of the Dakar Rally, but the Spaniard holds a comfortable lead with just two days until the finish in Argentina. "But the goal was to defend my third place", said Al-Attiyah. With just three stages remaining Al-Attiyah will try and push for the second place finish.

The most exciting battle in the Rally was for the lead in the Trucks category as Eduard Nikolaev snatched back the lead he'd lost to Federico Villagra, but only by the smallest of margins.

In the trucks class, Maz driver Siarhei Viazovich topped the timesheets in the 11th stage of the rally.
