"I'm very happy too, because the idea was to get as high up the rankings as possible before the rest stage, so I cannot be happier".

The Dakar Rally will have a rest day on Friday, before resuming with stage 7 on Saturday from La Paz to Uyuni, Bolivia. We wish the Indian rider a speedy recovery and we are sure he will be back stronger for next year's race. Nevertheless, KP is making good progress to recovery and said, "Post yesterday's crash, I am feeling better now after getting medical attention". But instead he was left rebooking his flight home after his Peugeot became stuck in the dunes twice, with a truck having to help him out of a sand hole, costing him nearly three hours. I was feeling a bit exhausted in the morning as I didn't have a good sleep, so it took me a little time to get going in the stage. "One more day to go before the much-deserved rest day", he added. With organisers separating the route for different categories, the cars and trucks were the first to make their way through the mammoth 774km route, followed by the quads and bikes. But after the dry and hot mountain dunes of Peru, the riders rode into snow, freezing temperature and rain, all at an altitude of 4800m. It was a long road to Arequipa for everyone though, with 508km of liaison section, which was also the longest yet of Dakar 2018. On completion of stage 5 he said, "I am happy to have arrived and to have been able to keep my bike intact". With this pace, the Sherco TVS Factory Rally team's lead racer has jumped up to 15th position in the overall rankings. With Pedrero the lone rider from TVS Sherco still in the running, he will be looking to close the gap to the leaders before the Dakar Rally moves to Argentina as he looks to accomplish another top 10 finish.
