Spoiler Alert: Sam Sunderland and GASGAS Factory Racing have won the 2022 Dakar Rally! Delivering a mature, considered performance throughout the past two weeks, Sunderland cruised to 8th place in today’s final stage, to claim overall victory at the 44th Dakar Rally. This gave GASGAS its first ever victory at the world’s most iconic rally raid event!

“Wow. What a feeling,” said Sunderland from the top of the podium. “That 10-minute period waiting at the end of the final stage to see if I’d won felt like a lifetime. But this feeling, knowing I’ve won a second Dakar, will stay in my memory forever. This win feels better than the first as this victory was anything but easy.”

He added, “The times were so close this year and there was no time to let off the gas, it was a really close race, right to the end. All of the hard work, the sacrifices, and everything that the GASGAS team has done for me makes it all worthwhile. It’s been five years since my first Dakar win, and it’s been a long time to wait! I’m super happy to get another win and claim the first one for GASGAS. Everyone on the team has worked so hard to achieve this and it’s a true team effort – together we got the job done. Amazing.”
