On Monday, crews from Russia took the first three places in the next high-speed section in the Arabian desert.
On the 375-km high-speed section between Sakaka and Neom, the leaders in the category of trucks changed several times. At first, Andrey Karginov from Kamaz was in the lead, then Alexey Vishnevsky took the first place at MAZ.
However, at the final segment of the distance, the Belarusian racer lost countless time and lay down on the 4th point. Anton Shibalov became the strongest – this is his first victory at the Dakar in 2021. Andrey Karginov and Dmitry Sotnikov lost the least and complemented the top three.
Since in the general systematization of crews on disastrous equipment, the count has been going on for a long time already, the results of the day did not affect the overall picture. Dmitry Sotnikov is still confidently leading, Anton Shibalov and Ayrat Mardeev are taking the next places.
