Kicking up the dust: Stage 3 of the Dakar Rally

THIS video of Stage 3 of the Dakar rally shows roads which will make the motorcyclists amongst us start dreaming about Argentina.

The stage shows riders racing from San Miguel de Tucuman to San Salvador de Jujuy.

Yet again, KTM is in the lead with the reigning Dakar champions Marc Coma and Cyril Despres. Despres still has the overall top time so far, although Coma is just 14 seconds behind.

Third on Stage 3 was Paulo Goncalves on the BMW G 450 R and then Olivier Pain in fourth on the Yamaha YZ 450 E.
