Australian Toby Price has shown why he is known as one of the most determined racers in the world. Price has dominated the 11th stage of the Dakar Rally, bouncing back after yesterdays disaster. In turn, Toby now sits in a provisional podium position.
Toby Price: “Yesterday was… I’ve never felt so bad in my life. Today we just needed to try and see if we could claw back a little bit of time, and I think we’ve done that a little bit, but it’s gonna be tough from back where we are. It’s good to get a stage win. In the first week I was quite conservative, but now I attached some more, it’s good to get a stage win because I hadn’t done that this year so far. To be still in the race going towards the finish line is a pretty big achievement for me. My goal is just trying to stay on two wheels, not making a day like yesterday and seeing what that gives us at the finish line.”
