Forget first American, Ricky Brabec won Stage 3 of the Dakar Rally to go into the overall lead. "Today was actually really fun. There were a lot of rocks, lots of stones, a lot of sand, and a lot of tricky navigation. It was really fast, which is what I really prefer."
The Super Marathon stage wrapped up with a Monster Energy Honda Team sweep of the 414-kilometer Neom loop. The stage took place amid slippery gravel-filled mountain tracks connected by a breakneck high-speed section of off-piste racing through a valley.
