Want more dunes and Saudi sand? Enduro21 brings together all the videos, results and notebooks from all 14 Dakar Rally stages of the 45th edition so you can enjoy the epic moments and our analysis from the bivouacs as the race unfolded.
Kevin Benavides took the Tuareg trophy in this 45th edition of the Dakar Rally, after an all-or-nothing battle with his Red Bull KTM Factory Racing teammate, Toby Price, in the 14th and final stage. After almost 5,000 kilometres of timed special and more than 43 hours of fighting against the clock and navigating in the desert, only 43 seconds separated the Argentine from the Australian in an race that will be remembered as the closest finish in the Dakar history.
