The Argentinian Kevin Benavides conquered the 43rd edition of the Dakar rally heading a Honda double in the motorcycle category, ahead of the British Sam Sunderland. Lorenzo Santolino (Sherco Factory), sixth, was the best classified Spaniard, after the abandonment of Joan Barreda in the previous stage.

The American Ricky Brabec was the winner of the twelfth and last stage, with 2:17 minutes ahead of Benavides, who controlled the difference with the North American from his second place after overtaking his main adversary, Sunderland.

This is Honda’s first double in the Dakar since in 1987 Cyril Neveu won the title, followed by Edi Orioli.
