2021 Dakar Rally wrap

The 2021 Dakar Rally is won and done, with France's Stéphane Peterhansel taking out the podium driving an X-Raid Mini. In its 43rd running, navigation proved to be more challenging for the 556 competitors, who covered an intense 8000 kilometres over 12 days and 12 gruelling stages. For the first time in the event's history, participants were given out handbooks 15 minutes prior to each stage, making the route even more difficult through the Arabian desert.
