Spain’s Marc Coma produced a stunning performance to claim the 12th stage of the Dakar Rally in Nasca on Friday.
The 35 year old, who had been more than two minutes off the lead overnight, outclassed fellow countryman Joan Barreda Bort while KTM team-mate Jordi Viladoms had to settle for third place.
This win sees Coma regain top spot, 1min 35 secs ahead of French rider Cyril Despres after he finished fourth.
Elsewhere, American Hummer driver Robby Gordon held his nerve to edge out Russia’s Leonid Novitsky while Dutch driver Gérard de Rooy outclassed fellow countryman Hans Stacey to clinch a hard fought win in the truck category.
