Jonah Street didn’t call today with his usual report. Presumably, the privateer Yamaha rider is celebrating, having completed the final “special” of the 2011 Personal Dakar Argentina Chile.
Repsol KTM rider Marc Coma wrapped up the third Dakar victory of his career with a fifth-place finish in today’s 181-kilometer stage. The Spaniard completed the difficult race with a 15-plus-minute advantage over his nearest rival, Cyril Despres. BMW-mounted Frans Verhoeven won today’s stage. Street was 13th and is 12th overall. Fellow American Quinn Cody recorded an impressive ninth-place finish in his first Dakar Rally.
We hope to hear from Jonah tomorrow with his final thoughts on the event.
