The second day of the Dakar 2014 Rally is underway and the road trip is from San Luis to San Rafael. The Brits attacked with Sam Sunderland grabbing the third position. He claims that there weren’t many sand formations along the way to hinder his progress. It was a strange amalgam of terrains that he encountered. And he took it all in a stride with lots of attitude. 

Sunderland was grateful to Honda for the support it offered him and he also had high hopes for the finish line. Meanwhile, the Netherlands too made its mark via its player whose name was Gerard De Rooy. He was in the truck race and defeated Marcel Van Vliet. Marcos Patronelli also scored big time by creaming Lucas Bonetto. 

It was an exhilarating and existential stage set for competition and survival of the fittest. Every man was armed with his vehicle of choice and the wheels burned rubber when they encountered friction with the bitumen road. Then there was the French fellow, Stephane Peterhansel who overtook Carlos Sainz by a 46 seconds margin. 

Finally, behind even Carlos Sainz was Nasser Al-Attiyah and that too by four minutes duration. The results show a new cadre of players coming to the fore. And they have a tendency of keeping their cool under trying times a la Hemingway’s “grace under pressure” code of conduct.
