Eurol in Dakar: Eurol-teams fight their way through second stage


Eurol supports teams in the Dakar Rally 2018. The massive dunes of Peru had to be conquered once again by the brave participants during the second stage.

Martin van den Brink didn’t have the best of days. He got stuck early on in the stage and lost valuable time. Although Van den Brink managed to continue the rest of the stage, he couldn’t catch up with the leaders who put on a tremendous speed in a difficult stage. Janus van Kasteren, his backup, showed potential during the second stage already by finishing in 13th place.

Gert Huzink has some Dakar experience under his belt, but the second stage was a different level with the high dunes of Peru. Huzink finished just outside the top-15 and consolidated his spot in the general classification. Huzink’s wingman, Ed Wigman, was in for a very long day and reached the bivouac when the sun was already set for a few hours.

Bernhard ten Brinke finished in 11th spot after a long and tough stage. Ten Brinke was very happy with the stage and the Toyota Hilux. Tim and Tom Coronel had trouble in the first part of the stage but increased speed towards the end of the stage.

Jurgen van den Goorbergh has decided to take it a bit easy during the first week of the Dakar. The malle moto-rider finished Sunday’s stage in 61st place.
