Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

Bri­tish rally su­per­star Sam Sun­der­land – the only Bri­tish rider ever to win the gru­elling Dakar Rally – is fly­ing in this week’s Abu Dhabi Desert Chal­lenge, lead­ing the first stage, and plac­ing fifth af­ter the sec­ond, with strong chal­lenges com­ing from team­mate Matthias Walkner, Honda’s Gon­calves and Husq­varna’s Renet and Quin­tanilla. “The deserts are re­ally un­pre­dictable,” said Sun­der­land. “I lost the front in the soft dunes while brak­ing a few times. That caused a bit of stress, but the bike is work­ing good.”
