DAKAR 2013: stage 14

After the fourteenth and final stage of the 2013 Dakar rally has finally arrived the final victory of Cyril Despres once again the main protagonist of the race that he won for the fifth time after last victories in 2005, 2007, 2010 and 2011. But contrary to what you might think it was not an easy race: Despres won his fifth Dakar winning only one stage and having to suffer a penalty of 15 minutes for the changing engine  reflecting the fact that the races duration must be managed with the head, the throttle as well as lot of luck. Second overall and great final result to his team-mate Ruben Faria which ends the great podium for the KTM team red bull. Helder Rodrigues, the first of the factory Honda riders, ends the race in seventh place overall slowed by a rather difficults at the beginning of the race for various mechanical problems of his CRF. Too bad for Alessandro Botturi finally forced to retire in two stages to go the end would certainly deserved a lot more glory and satisfaction with the commitment that we had made throughout the whole race.
