The highs and lows of the world's toughest race. The 44th edition of the Dakar Rally concludes with an overall victory for Nasser/Mathieu, a top 5 finish for Giniel/Dennis, a final stage win for Henk/Brett, and a top 15 finish for Shameer/Danie.
A final redemption stage for Henk and Brett
The final stage was also a redemption for Henk and Brett, who sacrificed their own chances of a stage win when they selflessly waited for their leading teammates to pass them in Stage 11, in order to lend support if needed. But the pair decided to attack on Stage 12, despite starting the timed section well down the order. They brought their Hilux home in 1hr 35min 19sec, besting the competition despite having to stop mid-stage in order to change a punctured tyre.
