On the other hand: Verhoeven has shown what he is capable of. Regarding that he is looking forward to the second week. ‘I’ll go in full attack. I’ll grab every chance I get. The Dakar is not finished yet. In the eighth stage I could have won a lot of time. I’ll not be surprised if there will be another chance like that. As far as I am concerned I would not have needed a rest day. I’m in good condition, the bike is as well. I am fit, I am motivated and I am a little bit pissed off. Those are good ingredients for some good results.’

The second week begins on Monday with the longest stage of the Dakar (852 kilometers in total with 593 kilometers of special stage) from Tucuman to Cordoba in Argentina. After three more stages in Argentina the competitors cross the Andes again to return to Chile, where the Dakar will finish in Santiago on Saturday.
