Sam Sunderland wins motor-cycling category of Dakar Rally
Sam Sunderland has become the first Briton to win the motor-cycle section of the Dakar Rally, which ended in Argentina on Saturday.
It was the 27-year-old’s third attempt at winning the event which began in the late 1970s.
The KTM rider secured victory after the 12th and final stage which ran for 40 miles into the town of Rio Cuarto.
The Dubai-based rider previously entered in 2012 and 2014, only to retire on each occasion due to mechanical problems.
