Pedemonte, on the other hand, had abandoned a stage at the end, but thanks to a parallel classification of the Dakar Experience, he was able to finish in 12th place.

Finally, we would like to highlight the participation of the great Chilean sportsman, Ignacio Cornejo, who in stage 10 had to leave the competition due to the unfortunate accident he suffered. His talent and great love for what he does was more than clear in this edition of the Dakar.
