Santosh, Mena continue good show at Dakar

La Paz (Bolivia), January 12 

CS Santosh and Oriol Mena of Hero MotoSports team continued their strong show in the gruelling Dakar Rally even as the sixth stage from Arequipa in Peru to La Paz was affected by weather.

The first part of the sixth stage was cancelled due to bad weather and fog. The revised sixth stage was shortened to 194km of timed section from the originally planned 313km but not before the riders tackled everything from snow, freezing temperatures and rain at altitudes up to 4,800 metres.

Both the bikers from Hero MotoSports decided to be cautious with an aim to complete the first phase of the rally without any unwanted incident. 

Spaniard Mena continued his solid run to finish the sixth stage at 23rd and go into the rest day at 21st overall. 

Santosh continued his resurgence in the rankings, despite a troubled ankle owing to an earlier crash. He finished the sixth stage at 38th and stands at 51st place overall. — PTI
