France’s Stephane Peterhansel produced a superb display to clinch the 11th stage of the Dakar Rally as the prestigious offroad race made its Peru debut on Thursday.

The 46 year old, who is bidding for a tenth win, proved too strong for his opponents and eventually finished three minutes and 44 seconds ahead of main rival Nani Roma.

The Spaniard is now 24 minutes behind Peterhansel in the overall standings while America’s Robby Gordon is currently lying in third place.

Meanwhile, France’s Cyril Despres stretched his overall lead on Spain’s reigning champion Marc Coma after securing his fourth stage win.

The 37 year old completed the 478km trek from

Arica to Arequipa in just over four hours and three minutes, edging out Spain’s Gerard Farres while Coma eventually had to settle for third place.
