Home News 2017 1 STAGE 5 RESULTS


The fifth stage of the rally-raid Dakar 2017 is already behind. Local landscapes are striking in their beauty, while the local climate brings about changes in the Dakar’s route. The managerial staff of the  rally-raid decided to shorten the stage 5 with  finish at the first special stage, that was the 219th km of the route. The competitors did not negotiate the second part of the special stage after the neutralization zone, as the tracks on the way to Oruro were blurred. According to Marc Coma, Dakar sporting director, it was a difficult decision, but in such a race like Dakar you should always be on the alert.

So the stage 5 Tupiza – Oruro allowed our crews to enter top-10 thus taking higher positions in general ranking. 
Siarhei Viazovich's crew no. 511 (S.Viazovich/P.Haranin/A.Zhihulin) – 5th place (17:43 time gap) at the stage; 17th position (03:24:37 time gap) in general ranking.
Alexander Vasilevski's crew no. 522 (A.Vasileuski/D. Vikhrenka/A. Zaparoshchanka) – 6 th place (18:21 time gap) at the stage; 11th position (01:13:23 time gap) in general ranking. 
Alexey Vishneuski's crew no.533 (А.Vishneuski/М.Novikau/А.Neviarovich) – 8th place (22:18 time gap) at the stage; 19th position (04:35:44  time gap) in general ranking.
