How to conquer the dunes at the Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge

Comunicato Stampa disponibile solo in lingua originale. 

After six days of breathtaking action at the #abudhabidesertchallenge the relief of those crossing the finish line was clear to see. Faced with over 1,000 kilometres of timed #racing across the Liwa Desert it took monumental effort from every competitor who made it back to the Yas Marina Circuit safely.

Celebrating victory in the car category this weekend are the Czech duo of driver Martin Prokop and co-driver David Pabiska after impressing over the sand. Prokop's Ford was run close by the MINI of Polish racer #kubaprzygonski who had Tom Colsoul of Belgium giving him pace notes.

The results leaves Prokop and Przygonski tied for the lead of the 2018 FIA Cross Country #Rally World Cup with eight of the 11 rounds of the championship still to be raced.

"It was a good fight between us and Prokop and we had chances to catch them over the stages." – Kuba Przygonski

Increasingly showing his class as the week worn on was five-time #abudhabidesertchallenge bike race winner #cyrildespres. The Frenchman, competing in the car race for the first time, climbed to fourth overall with a stage win on the last day of competition alongside Swiss navigator Steve Ravussin.
