Walkner finished Saturday's 120km final stage 5m38s behind the pace-setting Honda of Kevin Benavides, which was enough for the Austrian to claim a maiden Dakar win for himself and a 17th consecutive bike-class triumph for KTM. "Now I just need to get some rest and renew my energy and focus for the second leg of the marathon stage tomorrow", Santosh said.

Ignacio Casale recorded his fifth stage victory of the rally to secure a dominant victory, with the Yamaha rider ending one hour, thirty-eight minutes and fifty-two minutes clear of the chasing pack at the end.

Dakar 2016 champion Toby Price was a minute behind Benavides in the stage and completed the podium of the marathon 23 minutes behind fellow KTM rider Walkner.
