Joan Pedrero has had a magnificent start to the Dakar by winning the first stage between Asuncion and Resistancia. Xavier de Soultrait had the best scratch time but was handed a penalty giving victory to Soultrait.

It was a great day for Joan, who was very motivated in the morning. After a superb race where he attacked constantly, he beat Brabec by 12 seconds. 

Today’s 2nd stage (Tuesday), will be between Resistancia – San Miguel de Tucuman (803 km with a  275 km special).
