    11:19 Despres breaks a rear wheel!
    Cyril Despres is currently at a standstill after 180 km of the special due to a broken rear wheel on his Peugeot! The suspension has broken off and the Frenchman will not be able to repair it on his own. His hopes for victory on the Dakar are crumbling around him!

    11:42 Nasser Al-Attiyah at a standstill!
    Several minutes after Cyril Despres, now one of the other favourites for the Dakar has ground to a halt, after 204 kilometres. The Toyota driver might well lose any hopes of winning the Dakar!

    This edition looks really tough. Another favorites out today - Sunderland and Despres. Major loss for Al Attiyah. Our truckers Loprais and Kolomý both lost huge time yesterday with alternator and electrical problems. Surprisingly young Macík with his funny truck in now 4th (funny because the brand he is using doesn't exist anymore).

    @DanosElena
    Yes, @SebastienLoeb prepares its stage... and as we're going to open the road, he's twice as motivated �� #Dakar2018 #DreamTeam #Welovedust

    07:05 Loeb stuck again!
    Sébastien Loeb is stuck in the sand for the second time today. The Peugeot driver is not alone, with Cyril Despres, Jakub Przygonski, Carlos Sousa, Giniel De Villiers, Boris Garafulic and Miguel Yacopini stuck just a few metres away!

    07:12 Stéphane Peterhansel: 'If you stop, you're stuck for good'
    'We didn't have any problems, but it was extremely tricky. These dunes were the most difficult ones since the start of the rally. Seb and Carlos simply got stuck in the sand. Helping them was out of the question because we couldn't get close. If you stop, you're stuck for good!'

    As Loeb is still not at the finish of the first part of the stage, it looks like he will lose at least 1h...
