Bengaluru, January 7: Three-time champion Nasser Saleh Al Attiyah cut Stephane Peterhansel’s lead to under five minutes as he sealed a third consecutive stage win with the Dakar Rally 2021 reaching Riyadh via a mixture of Saudi Arabian terrain including dunes and fast-paced tracks. Al Attiyah and Peterhansel were closely matched throughout stage four, the former taking the win by a mere 11sec at the finish. “It’s been difficult in these early stages to make a big difference but I’m happy,” said Qatari ace Al Attiyah, who has Frenchman Matthieu Baumel as his co-driver.
