2013 Dakar: Stage 11 and the Hardships of the Fiambala Dunes [Video]
Coma's replacement rider, American rookie Kurt Caselli passed his team mate Despres and kept the pace really up, claiming his second Dakar stage victory, almost 5 minutes ahead ofHusqvarna rider Goncalves and 6 and a half minutes faster than Cyril.
Barreda Bort came in 6th , followed very closely by team mate Botturi and Slovakian KTM Jakes. Jakes lost a lot of time due to a navigation error, but managed to find the right track once more and recovered as much as was humanly possible.
The overall standings before Stage 12 see Despres in the first position, leading only 1'30” over Ruben Faria. Lopez is far back with almost 14 minutes, and the gaps get bigger and bigger with the 4th KTM ridden by Jakes and Botturi in 5th.
